Erabus Prime was the main planet in the Erabus planetary system. This system was located in the Gamma Quadrant.

Erabus Prime was visited by Vash while in the company of Q. Vash was bitten by an insect on the planet that would have caused horrible sores to appear all over her body, were it not for Q's intervention.

The infection can be sub-divided into three stages. At the first stage, the patient loses most of his scalp hair, except for a few strands. During the second stage, oozing boils appear all over the body. Finally, during the third stage, the patient begins to shiver, is no longer able to walk and skin and hair turn gray. (DS9: "Q-Less")
