Paradise City on Nimbus III

Nimbus III was the third planet in the Nimbus planetary system, located in the Neutral Zone. It was orbited by at least two moons. The atmosphere was capable of supporting humanoid lifeforms. According to an advertisement, the planet was "...famous for its wildlife and the fishing is terrific." Individuals who wished to move to this planet could finance their trip through Federation Federal.

Nimbus III was established as a "Planet of Galactic Peace" in 2267 after the Federation-Klingon War.

The Federation and the Klingon and Romulan Empires agreed to mutually develop the planet, perhaps in the hopes of serving as a model for a new age of peace and understanding. However, the planet proved to be an inhospitable rock, and the colonists chosen for the undertaking were among the most unscrupulous individuals in the galaxy, quickly taking to fighting amongst each other, fashioning their own crude projectile weapons when the planetary government forbade them from any weapons at all. In 2287, the Vulcan Sybok took over the planet's capital and only settlement, Paradise City, to attract a starship to take him to Sha Ka Ree. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Nimbus III was labeled on a star chart in astrometrics aboard the USS Voyager in 2376. (VOY: "Child's Play" display graphic)
