This article is about Gaia system. You may be looking for Gaia concept.

Gaia was a binary[1] star system, located in the Gaia sector[2] of the Gamma sector block[2] within the galaxy's Gamma Quadrant.[3] The system consisted a type K orange star primary,[1] a type G yellow star secondary,[1] with five[2] planets orbiting the pair. (ST reference: Star Charts, STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "Armistice")

History and specifics[]

The Gaia system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including fourth planet, Gaia IV. The USS Defiant made first contact with the Gaians in the year 2373. The Gaia colony existed there due to a temporal anomaly from the 22nd century until 2373. (DS9 episode: "Children of Time")

The planet was placed under quarantine because the planet's quantum energy barrier could cause temporal displacement. (ST reference: Star Charts)

In the 2380, DaiMon Neek was to meet Vogusta in the Gaia system. (TNG novel: Q & A)

The Gaia sector and its systems were targeted by the Hur'q during the Hur'q Conflict[4] in the year 2410. Following the restoration of the Hur'q civilization, rogue swarms remained a threat for the weakened Dominion, though as a newly inducted member into the Khitomer Alliance, it received military aid. (STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "Home")
