You may be looking for the DC Comic book titled "Homeworld".

A homeworld was the planet, moon or other stellar body, from which a certain species originated. For example, Earth was the homeworld of the Human and Voth species, Andoria of the Andorians and the Aenar, and Qo'noS of the Klingons. (Star Trek: The Original Series; VOY: "Distant Origin"; ENT: "The Aenar"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In some cases, more than one intelligent species originated from the same planet. Examples of this were Trill, which featured the humanoid Trill as well as the symbionts, and Xindus, home to five extant species of sentient beings, one extinct by the 22nd century. (DS9: "Equilibrium"; ENT: "The Shipment", "Azati Prime")

In order for a celestial body to be a homeworld, it did not have to be the site where a species evolved, but where the cultural and social origin of a certain species was localized, as was the case with the Romulans, who originated as Vulcans on the planet Vulcan, but moved to Romulus thousands of years ago. (TOS: "Return to Tomorrow")

In the event of the sudden loss of one's homeworld, a new one would be settled. This was the case in the alternate reality, where the Vulcan survivors of Nero's red matter attack colonized a planet that was christened New Vulcan. (Star Trek Into Darkness)
