History and specifics
In 2269, the USS Enterprise transferred Carter Winston (Vendorian) to the local authorities on Valeria, escorted by its security detail, Lieutenant Anne Nored. Valeria had the legal infrastructure to handle a case of Winston's complexity, where he would be tried for espionage as a Romulan spy.
The Enterprise remained in orbit for resupply, repairs, and shore leave for nine days at the end of December 2269. Repairs were completed there to the deflector shield generator sabotaged by Winston. James T. Kirk spent the time hiking and fishing at a mountain lake. The starship departed early the next year, bound for Rifton. (TOS - Log Two novelization: The Lorelei Signal)
While exploring Phylos II, when Hikaru Sulu seemed more absorbed than usual in studying the local plant life, Kirk asked him if he'd gotten enough leave time on Valeria. After their survey was completed, Kirk set the ship's course for the Omicron region to give the crew some additional shore leave. (TOS - Log Two novelization: The Infinite Vulcan)
- Valeria's position excludes it from being part of the Valeria system, which is in the Alpha Quadrant near the Cardassian Union.
