Kurill Prime,[1] also called Kurrill Prime,[2] was an inhabited planet, a class M world and second planet[3] of the Kurill[3] binary[2] star system, located in the Kurill sector[3] of the galaxy's Gamma Quadrant.[1] One of its suns was a F class star while the other was a G class star.[2] The planet was the homeworld of the Vorta[1] and a member of the Dominion.[2] (DS9 episode: "The Jem'Hadar", ST reference: Star Charts, STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "Armistice")

History and specifications[]

At some time in its past, Kurill Prime was visited by a Changeling who was being pursued by an angry mob. It is unknown if the mob were beings native to Kurill Prime or had tracked the Changeling to the planet. Thankfully, the Changeling came across a family of Vorta who took him in and hid him from the mob.

Overwhelmed by this act of kindness, the Changeling promised the Vorta that they would have a position of power within the Dominion. The early Vorta were timid ape-like creatures who lived in hollowed out trees. The Vorta of the 24th century were humanoid in appearance which was the result of centuries of genetic engineering by their Changeling masters. (DS9 episode: "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River")

Very little was known of Kurill Prime. It likely possessed some expanse of forests as, again, the Vorta were once ape-like creatures who dwelled in trees. The landscape was also probably abundant in nuts, fruits and berries as the later Vorta were heard to remark that they had little sense of taste beyond these three foods. This lack of taste was intended to be a reminder, by the Dominion Founders, of the Vorta's early past origins. Two foods that were possibly native to Kurill Prime, and which the Vorta liked to eat, were kava nuts and the rippleberry. (DS9 episodes: "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River", "Favor the Bold")

Kurill Prime had a central location within the Dominion. Moreover, it lay on the a direct path between the Bajoran wormhole and the Founders' homeworld. In fact, when a cloaked fleet of Obsidian Order and Tal Shiar ships was sent through the wormhole to attack the Founders' homeworld in 2371, the fleet passed quite close to the planet and its system. However, no attempts were made to observe or contact Kurrill Prime. (ST reference: Star Charts, DS9 episode: "The Die is Cast")

In the year 2375, a clone of Weyoun related some information about the Vorta's ancestral world to the renegade Changeling Odo. (DS9 episode: "Treachery, Faith, and the Great River")

In the 2410s decade, Kurill Prime served as a reminder of the Vorta's humble beginnings. Weyoun 10 recorded that in the Vorta log in the year 2410. (STO - Gamma Quadrant mission: "Armistice")

The Kurill sector and its systems were targeted by the Hur'q during the Hur'q Conflict[4] in that year. 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")
