In 2372, the USS Voyager followed a warp trail to this planet, hoping to find much needed polyferranide. When the ship entered orbit, high amounts of polyferranide were detected and an away team was to beam down to the planet. Constant electrical storms prevented the crew from beaming down, however, and a shuttle was used to land on the planet instead.
The planet was rich in plant life, including what appeared to be specimens of Cypripedium, of the Asiatic genus Paphiopedilum found in a dense jungle. Hawk-like birds were also found on the planet. (VOY: "Tattoo")
