Dorvan V was a class M planet located near the border between the United Federation of Planets and the Cardassian Union.

In 2350, a Native American group, whose ancestors had left Earth in 2170 in the 22nd century in order to preserve their traditional culture, settled on Dorvan V. (TNG episode: "Journey's End", ST website:

The Cardassians wanted control of Dorvan V and this desire for the planet was one of the main reasons for the Federation-Cardassian War. In the 2360s, a truce was declared and negotiations were held on Tohvun III. One of the outcomes the Cardassians hoped for was control of Dorvan V to be ceded to them. (DS9 novel: A Stitch in Time)

In 2370, under a new treaty, the Federation ceded its claims on Dorvan V to Cardassia. The USS Enterprise-D was assigned to evacuate the human colonists, although they resisted this forced relocation, nearly leading to a military confrontation. This was avoided when Cardassian Gul Evek agreed to a plan which would allow the humans to remain on Dorvan V, under Cardassian authority. (TNG episode: "Journey's End")

Chakotay was worried about the inhabitants of Dorvan V living under the Cardassians, although he also thought that due to their small numbers, their peaceful nature and possessing only minimal technology, the Cardassians would leave them alone. (TNG novel: Quarantine)

In an alternate timeline, a military confrontation did result over the question of the Dorvan V evacuation, leading to a six-day battle and a renegotiation of the border. DTI agents Dulmer and Gariff Lucsly visited the planet in 2373 searching for the cause of this divergence. (TNG short story: "Gods, Fate, and Fractals")
