The Pergamum Nebula, often referred to as the Pergamum, is an expansive, volatile nebular cloud located somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants, quite distant from Federation space in the 23rd century. The Pergamum is in the vicinity of the Ionite Nebula, and is home to a number of races and cultures, many of which originate from the planet K'davu in the heart of the region.
History and specifics
The process of entering and leaving the nebula involved a complicated series of boundary layers, each requiring the ship to make drastic adjustments to operating systems in order to counteract the effects of the environment. Besides the operational adjustments required to acclimate the ship to each successive layer, the ship was also extensively modified structurally to prepare for the mission.
Pike attempted to leave the nebula in order to intervene in the conflict with the Klingons, but was ordered to remain on the charting assignment by Admirals Terral and Cornwell. (DSC novel: The Enterprise War)
