The system contains at least four planets, two of which -- Chin'toka II and Chin'toka III -- are inhabited. During the Dominion War, the system was the location of two major engagements between the Federation Alliance and the Dominion-Cardassian alliance. (DS9 episodes: "Tears of the Prophets", "The Siege of AR-558", "The Changing Face of Evil")
In late 2374, Starfleet salvaged a Jem'Hadar ship crashed on one of Chin'toka's planets. P8 Blue was a member of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers team to investigate the ship. (SCE eBook: War Stories, Book 2)
