Ajilon Prime was a world located in the Ajilon system, the Archanis sector, of the Beta Quadrant, near the Klingon border. It was also the only class-M world in the star system. The planet has a Federation colony. The Decker Memorial Hospital was located there. (ST reference: Star Charts, ST video game: Starship Creator, ST website: StarTrek.com)

History[edit | edit source]

Ajilon Prime had been settled by the 22nd century but joined the Federation after 2267. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: Tower of Babel, VAN novel: Precipice)

Locations on the planet included Tanandra Bay, which had a Starfleet base. (DS9 episode: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")

It was invaded by the Klingon Empire in early 2373, after the ceasefire ordered by Chancellor Gowron broke down. After the planet was invaded, the personnel sent out a distress call, which Julian Bashir and Jake Sisko responded to. Although initially excited about experiencing the Battle of Ajilon Prime firsthand, Jake later saw the true horrors of war there - the death, destruction and the actions taken by desperate people. (DS9 episode: "Nor the Battle to the Strong")

During the Klingon occupation of Deep Space 9 in 2373, Jake kept remembering his experiences with the Klingons on Ajilon Prime. (DS9 novel: Vengeance)

Ajilon Prime required rebuilding after the Dominion War. (SCE eBook: Ishtar Rising)

In 2376, Jake mentioned Ajilon Prime in a log he believed might be his last, before he was rescued by the Even Odds. (DS9 novel: Rising Son)

In 2379, Section 31 operatives L'Haan and Dietz was able to monitor the progress of the Orion Syndicate freighter Caedera from Ajilon Prime (possibly as part of the Starfleet Perimeter Defense Network); the Caedera was headed to Ajilon after it made its last drop of cargo to the freighter Damascus. (TNG novel: A Time to Heal)
