Victims of biological research, the colonist of Genorix III finally overwhelmed the guards and took command of the Starfleet Vessel USS Troubadour. They found a new home on Cretanus and resettled, also occupying the orbiting listening post, Eagle's Nest.
One of the last planets to join the Delta Freedom Alliance, more out of fear of the Federation, the Danteans are quite xenophobic. First settled in 2201 by a lost group of exiles from Earth. Dante has vast mountian ranges, sweeping green valley's and large oceans, it is 65% water. Whilst the Dantean Government is supporter of the DFA, it mainitains some diplomatic relations with the Federation. Dante is mineral rich and lies near a large asteroid field which it mines. Minerals so far discovered are: Cartenum and large deposits of Neodilithium. Recent discoveries of Tritanium has sparked renewed interested by the Federation in wooing Dante over.

The first planet of the Devu system, Devu I stands as mute reminder to the horrible effects of the misuse of natural resources. Originally a thriving mining colony, Devu I's atmosphere was consumed by a raging inferno that left it uninhabitable, killing nearly 11,000 Devu I residents. Devu I's only inhabitants now are a Starfleet marine base and an ecological research station, both housed inside protective domes. Devu I is part of the Republic of Devu, but because it is unpopulated, it is no longer represented in the Devu senate.
Nestled at the heart of the Devu System, was first settled in 2321 after the discovery or large mineral and ore deposits amongst Devu’s vast network of mountain ranges. Initially a mining colony world, Devu II has evolved over the past century into a prominent center of culture and political change in the Delta Quadrant.
DS-402 is a "miniature" Dyson Sphere discovered in the Delta Quadrant by a team from Starbase Phoenix in 2405.
140 years ago the class M moon of Sciencia was found during routine Federation surveys. Sciencia orbits Khiori 1 at a distance of 440000 miles (704000 kilometers) at perigee (the point where Sciencia is closest to Khiori 1) to 506000 miles (809600 kilometers) at apogee (the point where the moon is farthest from the planet). Sciencia has an equatorial circumference of 8150 miles (13040 kilometers) and a mass approximately equivalent to that of Terra.
Sciencia is dominated by oceans, which account for nearly 2/3 of the surface area of the moon. The vast oceans of Sciencia are churned by a tidal cycle that's powered by the gravitational pull of Khiori 1 as well as the neighboring moon of Miencia. The dry terrain of Sciencia is very much like those of Earth with environments ranging from tropical rain forests near the equators to frozen tundra near the polar regions. Sciencia has an active, volcanic core that causes geologic activity in the form of earthquakes and volcanism. This activity has forced up mountain ranges and created volcanic islands in the Sciencian oceans.
Since the time of colonization a diverse population of Sciencia has become diverse. Presently the colony is the home for over 13000 colonists.
