- This article is about the Vulcan desert. You may be looking for the TOS novel, Vulcan's Forge.
Vulcan's Forge (also known simply as The Forge) is a vast desert area and canyon complex located on Vulcan. At its center are the Fire Plains of Raal, and the city of ShiKahr is one of several located at its periphery. Also within the Forge are Mount Seleya, and the volcanically active region known as the Womb of Fire.
The Forge is home to a variety of animal- and plant-life adapted to severe desert conditions, including sehlats and le-matya. For cities near the Forge, it is the site of the traditional kahs-wan trial.
Jadzia Dax had not visited Vulcan's Forge as of 2374, although she had always wanted to. In that year, her husband Worf suggested their honeymoon should take the form of a hike across the Forge during Summer, although Jadzia did not want to spend her honeymoon "climbing, hiking, sweating, bleeding or suffering in any way".
