The Paxan homeworld

The Paxan homeworld was an Alpha or Beta Quadrant planet, the adopted home of the xenophobic Paxan species.

It was the sole planet orbiting a T-Tauri type star in a pocket in the Ngame Nebula. Unusually for such a star system, it fellt within Class M range, and was capable of sustaining life. According to the Paxans, it was in fact a protoplanet which they had terraformed in other to better conceal their whereabouts.

Ironically, the unusual nature of the planet prompted the USS Enterprise-D to investigate it in 2367. The Paxans had set up a trap involving a wormhole near the planet in order to goad visiting ships into a scenario where they would move away without investigating, but their unfamiliarity with Positronic brains, and the presence of Commander Data on board, thwarted their plan. However, once the situation became clear, the two parties cooperated to fix the situation, and Starfleet did not learn of the significance of the planet. (TNG: "Clues")
