"Planet Hell" from orbit

Class: M
Type: Planet

"Planet Hell" was the nickname of an M-class planet located in the Delta Quadrant.

The planet, discovered by the USS Voyager in 2372, was found to have high levels of trigemic vapors and was used by a reptilian species as a birthing-ground. After their offspring hatched, they used the vapors to feed themselves until they were retrieved by their parents. (VOY: "Parturition")

The name is an in-joke, referring to the set where the planet scenes were filmed. Stage 16 at Paramount Studios, used since the premiere of Star Trek: The Next Generation, earned its nickname thanks to the harsh conditions that could be simulated there.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 84), Planet Hell was located in non-aligned space between the Vidiian Sodality and the Kazon Collective. This planet orbited a Class K star with a magnitude of +5, which was the same brightness as Sol. The USS Voyager visited this planet on stardate 49090.
