Donatu V was a class M planet located in the space of the galaxy's Beta Quadrant, the fifth planet in orbit of the Donatu star system, near Sherman's Planet and the Federation-Klingon border in the Beta Quadrant.

History and specificsEdit

In the year 2244, Donatu V was the location of an inconclusive battle between Starfleet and Klingon forces for control of the planet. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles") Captain Rollin Bannock of the USS Republic devised a flanking maneuver that allowed Federation forces to overcome the Klingons and force them to withdraw. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Republic)

The Star Trek Roleplaying Game Player's Guide states the battle as occurring in 2242 and being a decisive victory for the Federation.

On Nob Hill, in San Francisco there was a Monument to the Fallen of Donatu V. (ST - New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "At Times of Peril")

The Albino was spotted on Donatu V prior to 2293. (TLE novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire)

At the height of the Dominion War in 2374, the IKS Rotarran was ordered to escort a convoy of Klingon freighters, which included the IKS Par'tok, to Donatu V. (DS9 episode: "Sons and Daughters"; DS9 - The Dominion War novelization: Call to Arms...)

Alternate realitiesEdit

In the mirror universe, a version of Donatu V also existed.

In the late 2240s or early 2250s, the mirror Donatu V was the site of a Klingon weapons test. The test destroyed the planet's atmosphere and wiped out roughly 97 percent of the native population. (Mirror Universe short story: "Ill Winds")
