Ventax II was the second planet located in the Ventax planetary system. The atmosphere was capable of supporting humanoid lifeforms. This inhabited planet was the homeworld for the Ventaxians, a peaceful, agrarian humanoid species.

Over a thousand years ago, the planet was divided in numerous highly-industrialized city-states who constantly warred with each other and destroyed great parts of the planetary ecology. Then, the planet's leaders came to reason and began pacifying the planet and cleaning the environment, using the newly-created story of Ardra to justify themselves to their people and draft a constitution. The planet isolated itself from the rest of the galaxy, until it was again confronted with off-world influence via a Klingon expedition in 2297. Sometime after this, a Federation science station was established on the planet.

In 2367, the planet fell into chaos 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 used this myth and modern technology to present herself as Ardra and to bring the planet under control, but her true identity was successfully revealed by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D.

The central government building of Ventax II was called the Atheneum.

Ventax II allowed persons involved in legal disputes to make use of arbitration instead of its court system if the parties so desired. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 64, Ventax was located in the Beta Quadrant.
