Zobral's encampment on the surface of the Torothan homeworld

The Torothan homeworld was a planet, homeworld to Zobral's species. From orbit it looked like the planet was nothing but sand, and indeed it had a desert larger than any on Earth. However it did have a handful of lakes and small seas. It contained at least one continent, and had a number of cities.

A city "on the far side of the desert" was mentioned, implying other non-desert regions.

Government was in the hands of the the Torothan clan, which also controlled most land and resources.

During the 2150s, the planet was in conflict. A caste that had been in place for centuries had been abandoned, but people expecting to finaly be treated equaly found that little had changed and Torothons were still dominant. After trying protests and the courts, the lower castes had turned to terrorism. In 2152, Captain Jonathan Archer and Charles Tucker of the Enterprise NX-01 were invited by Zobral for a meal and participation in a game of Geskana at his encampment on this planet. The Starfleet officers agreed, but when Torothan forces began to bombard the rebel complex, they fled into the deserts of the planet.

At this time, the planet had a orbital Detection grid. This system however had narrow gaps that could be penetrated, albeit difficultly. (ENT: "Desert Crossing")
