Ventax II was the inhabited second planet in its star system. This was the homeworld for the Ventaxians, a humanoid species. The planet had east and west magnetic poles.

The central government building of the Ventaxians was called the Atheneum. In 2367, the head of state for the planet was Acost Jared.

Before the 14th century, the Ventaxians were highly industrialized, and caused destruction in the planet's ecology through various conflicts. In the year 1367, the Ventaxian leaders began pacifying the planet and cleaning the environment, using the story of Ardra to bring their people together in a common contract. After that, they were a peaceful agrarian society and effectively isolated itself from the rest of the galaxy.

First contact after centuries was made by a Klingon expedition in 2297. Sometime after this, a Federation research station was established on the planet to study their culture. In 2367, this station was headed by Doctor Howard Clark.

In 2367, the planet fell into chaos again when, according to the Ardra story, a fabulous thousand-year period of peace and wealth would come to an end and the planet would be turned over to Ardra. A con artist took advantage of this myth and modern technology to present herself as Ardra and to bring the planet under control. She used technology to cause earthquakes, for example. Her true identity was successfully revealed by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

In the episode, many of the details for the precedent-setting case were omitted. According to the script, in the Ventaxian year 931 AA (after Ardra), in the township of Tau Velor, the craftsman Akul K'Ton filed a charge against the home owner Garv Etes. The case was decided in favor of the Ventaxian. [1]
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 64) and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Ventax system was located in the Beta Quadrant. The primary was a G-class star.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 543), Ventax II was a M-class planet.
