Karemma[1] was an inhabited world, a class M planet,[1] and the first and only planet in the Karemma[2] binary[2] star system, located in the Idran sector[2] of the galaxy's Gamma Quadrant.[1] It was the homeworld of the Karemma species[1] and capital of the Karemma Foundation[1] polity, a member state[1] of the Dominion. (ST reference: Star Charts, STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "The Search")

Its governing body was known as the Karemma Foundation and, although it was not initially a member world of the Dominion, Karemma was closely allied to it. It had an estimated population of four and a half billion in the 2370s. Karemma's capital city was called Kecemen. (ST reference: Star Charts)

History[edit | edit source]

Karemma was believed to have developed warp drive around the year 2300. (ST reference: Star Charts)

The USS Defiant travelled to the planet in the year 2371, while attempting to make first contact with the Founders. Minister Ornithar pointed them in the direction of the subspace relay on Callinon VII. (DS9 episode & novelization: The Search)

After Minister Hanok and the accompanying crew were saved from the Jem'Hadar in 2372, they were brought to Deep Space 9 by the damaged Defiant so they could return to Karemma at a later date. (DS9 episode: "Starship Down")

Karemma established trade relations with the Ferengi of the Alpha Quadrant's Ferengi Alliance in 2372. (ST reference: Star Charts)

A new education centre had been established on Karemma by the Dominion in late 2376. (DS9 novel: The Dominion: Olympus Descending)

In 2410, the Hur'q Assembly attacked Karemma. A combined task force of the Khitomer Alliance and Ambassador Odo's Vanguard Fleet moved past a Dominion blockade to liberate the planet. The Karemmans subsequently considered leaving the Dominion. (STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "The Search")

Following the end of the Hur'q Conflict[3], Proconsul of the Romulan Republic D'Tan initiated talks between the Karemma Foundation and the reforming Dominion. The proconsul aimed to reach a result beneficial to both parties and avoiding conflict, whether it would result in Karemman independence or not. Ambassador Odo convinced the Great Link to abandon the Dominion's "benevolent dictatorship" of the Founders in favor of democracy. (STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "Home")
