Sauria was the fourth planet of the Psi Serpentis star system in the Alpha Quadrant. It was the homeworld of the Saurian civilization and a member of the United Federation of Planets. (ST references: The Worlds of the Federation, Star Charts; ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

This world is known as Sorya' in tlhIngan Hol. (ST reference: Klingon for the Galactic Traveler)


Before the Saurians had a unified planetary government, the Global League's name for their planet was Lyaksti'kton, while the M'Tezir called it N'Ragolar.[citation needed]

First contact with Humans occurred in 2157, when the crew of the Earth Cargo Service freighter ECS Silk Road, made contact for supplies. As the various planetary governments did not have a common name for themselves, the Silk Road crew referred to them collectively as Saurians. The name was eventually adopted, with the planet referred to as Sauria.

The Saurians had a scientific theory similar to basic warp understanding, despite not yet having developed any sort of practical spaceflight.

By 2162, the Saurians had put their spaceflight knowledge to use and constructed at least two primitive space stations in orbit or their world. The Global League's orbital outpost was named Tai'sheku and the M'Tezir's M'Tezir One. Both of these stations hailed the USS Essex when it approached to make official Federation first contact.

In 2385, Quark bought a new bar from a metalwright on Sauria for Deep Space 9. (ST - The Fall novel: Revelation and Dust)
