In 2369, Bajoran terrorist Tahna Los, aboard the runabout USS Yangtzee Kiang, rendezvoused with Lursa and B'Etor's Bird-of-Prey near the lower moon of Bajor VIII to receive a quantity of bilitrium explosive. The USS Ganges, monitoring the exchange from behind the second moon, attempted to intercept him, but Tahna threatened to detonate the bomb in low orbit and wipe out the colonies on the surface. The Ganges was forced to allow him to head towards the Bajoran wormhole. (DS9: "Past Prologue")

An unnamed planet in Klingon space had at least three moons. (ENT: "The Augments")

Class M moon

Unnamed Class M moon

An unnamed Class M moon with violent plasma storms.

In 2370, a shuttle carrying Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Voval crash landed on the moon. When Picard detected another structure on the surface, he went to investigate, finding the ruins of a Terellian freighter and one survivor named "Anna". (TNG: "Liaisons")

These bodies were only visible in the remastered version of the episode.

Galorndon Core moon

Galorndon Core moon

A moon of Galorndon Core

Galorndon Core had at least one moon. (TNG: "Unification II")

Galorndon Core and its moon were a re-use of Peliar Zel II and its Alpha moon from TNG: "The Host".

Gas giant moon

A moon orbiting a gas giant.

This moon orbited a gas giant in the Badlands. In 2371, Major Kira Nerys and Odo landed on this moon to search for a crash-landed Peregrine class courier ship. (DS9: "Heart of Stone")

Golana moons

Golana landscape with moons

A picture of a Golana landscape with two moons

Golana was depicted as having two moons. (DS9: "Time's Orphan")

The moons were not seen in the outdoor scenes in the episode, but rather in three different pictures of the planet created by Molly.

Haven moon

Haven's moon remastered

A moon of Haven

Holberg 917G companions

Near the planet Holberg 917G in the Omega system, at least two close companions, possibly moons, could be seen. (TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah")

It was never explicitly said that is possible that Holberg 917 was a planet, therefore it could theoretically be a moon of one of these bodies. In the original episode, just one companion can be seen, both in orbit and on the surface. The matte painting of the surface was a reuse of the Kalar fortress on Rigel VII.

Jupiter moons

The planet Jupiter had many moons, including Ganymede.

After The Doctor transferred himself from the Delta Quadrant to Jupiter Station to treat Doctor Lewis Zimmerman for an ailment, the ungrateful Dr. Zimmerman congratulated him and recommended that during his visit he tour "Jupiter's third moon," noting that he heard the lava flows on it are lovely during that particular time of year. (VOY: "Life Line")

Zimmerman's statement is somewhat unclear. He may have been referring to Ganymede, the third Galilean moon, rather than Amalthea, Jupiter's actual third moon, although Io (Jupiter's first moon) is the only (currently known) moon of Jupiter to display active volcanism.

Mab-Bu VI moon

The planet and its moon

Mab-Bu VI moon surface

moon surface

The gas giant Mab-Bu VI had one unnamed moon. The moon could only barely be considered class M and was constantly swept by ionic cyclones and electromagnetic storms. The ground cover was all non-porous rock which made a survival for a long time on the moon very unlikely.

During the 19th century, hundreds of convicted criminals from Ux-Mal were imprisoned on the moon, their consciousnesses detached from their physical bodies and set adrift in the moon's constant storms.

In 2167, the criminals attempted to escape aboard the Federation starship USS Essex. However, the starship became trapped in the electromagnetic currents in the moon's atmosphere and was destroyed.

The criminals tried to escape again in 2368, when the USS Enterprise-D arrived to investigate the distress call from the Essex. They inhabited the bodies of Data, Deanna Troi, and Miles O'Brien, claiming to be the disembodied minds of Essex crew members. They took the ship under their control and ordered to assume a polar orbit of the southern polar region, where the other members of their species were located. Their true identities were uncovered and the criminals were expelled before they could bring aboard the rest of their number. (TNG: "Power Play")

Matalas Prime moons

Matalas Prime had several ringed moons. (ENT: "Dawn")

Maxia Zeta IV

The Maxia Zeta system was known to have at least two moons. (TNG: "The Battle")

This was not stated or shown, but comes from the Captain's log entries of the USS Stargazer seen in the episode.

Omicron Theta moons

Omicron Theta had at least two moons. (TNG: "Datalore")

Rigel VII moon

RigelVII-Holberg917G fortress

Rigel VII sky.

In the sky of Rigel VII, two bodies could be seen. The song Moon over Rigel VII seemed to imply that at least one of them was a moon. The other body, more distant than the moon, was another planet in the Rigel System. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part II", Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Risa moons

Risa was known to have at least two moons. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

A deleted scene from "Fallen Hero" established that there were three.

Romulus or Remus moon(s)

Either Romulus or Remus seems to have had at least one moon.

The map of the Romulan system seen in Star Trek Nemesis does not depict moons around any of it's four planets. However, TNG: "The Defector" has a scene showing two bodies in the Romulan sky, one of which might be Remus, which would make the other a moon of either Romulus or Remus. Alternatively, both might be moons. ENT: "The Aenar" also shows an object close to Romulus, the texture of which doesn't seem to correspond with Remus. Note that despite the perspective, this body could be quite small.

Saturn moons

The penal moon

A prison moon designed to contain the Ennis and Nol-Ennis.

In 2369, the crew of the Starfleet runabout USS Yangtzee Kiang visited a moon that was determined to be the source of a narrow band subspace signal. It was orbited by a network of artificial satellites.

The moon was discovered to be a prison on which artificial microbes kept the prisoners forever alive to wage war with one another. These microbes resurrected Kai Opaka, but forced her to remain on the moon or die. Accepting her new situation as the will of the Prophets, Opaka remained behind. She hoped to teach the warring prisoners peace. (DS9: "Battle Lines")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 75, the star system in which this moon was located had a Class M primary. This primary had a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 as bright as Sol. The moon was quarantined.
