Golana is an inhabited planet near Bajor. It was once home to an advanced species who used time portals, but who vanished around the 14th century. In the early 24th century, the Bajorans colonized the planet. (DS9 episode: "Time's Orphan")

The colonization of Golana was undertaken by the Jas clan. In 2318, Minister Jas Holza expressed interest in the Cardassian proposal for the Bajorans to be given technology to increase the speed of their starships, remarking that it would bring Golana much closer to Bajor and be a benefit to its inhabitants. The real reason Jas was keen to have access to Cardassian warp drive technology was that Golana had had a disastrous year due to storms and crop failures, resulting in many colonists leaving. Jas' venture on Golana had failed by 2323 and the colony was abandoned. (ST - Terok Nor novel: Day of the Vipers)

When the Bajorans were colonizing Golana, the ruins interfered with the construction of a water system. (TNG novel: Losing the Peace)

In 2372 or 2373, Miles O'Brien, Keiko O'Brien and Molly O'Brien visited Golana. In 2374, they travelled there again, this time with Kirayoshi O'Brien and enjoyed a picnic. Molly wandered off and fell through one of the time portals, which sent her back in time to the 21st century. She was rescued, although ten years had passed for her. Miles and Keiko were initially unwilling to send the adult Molly back and erase her from history, although they soon realised she would never be able to completely adapt to society. Helped by Odo, Miles and Keiko returned the adult Molly to Golana, where she travelled through the portal and showed her younger self how to escape. (DS9 episode: "Time's Orphan")

The United Federation of Planets' Department of Temporal Investigations removed the time portals from Golana over the next several years. (ST - Department of Temporal Investigations novel: Watching the Clock)
