Accommodation on the planet


New Earth was a M-class world situated in the Delta Quadrant, that was the home of a primate species. It was the third planet of a seven-planet solar system, orbiting a yellow dwarf star. Its landmass was covered in dense forest, and resembled Earth in many ways.

The ambient temperature was sufficient to allow outdoor bathing for at least a part of the year. The planet differed from Earth in that plasma storms occurred randomly in the upper atmosphere.

The name of the planet was coined by Captain Kathryn Janeway and Commander Chakotay in 2372, when they were forced to leave the USS Voyager and live on the planet because of a rare viral infection that they'd contracted.

Janeway and Chakotay set up a modular shelter to serve as a permanent home. Although these facilities were basic, they were in keeping with their low-tech environment. (VOY: "Resolutions")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 85), the New Earth system was located in non-aligned space between the Vidiian Sodality and the Kazon Collective, in the Delta Quadrant. This system was a binary star system. Primary was a Class G star with a magnitude of +3, which was ten times the brightness of Sol. Secondary was a Class M star. The USS Voyager visited this system on stardate 49690. The Federation starship traveled 70 light years; then, on stardate 49892, the 'Voyager returned to New Earth to pick up Janeway and Chakotay.
