The Cardassian homeworld: This was once a harsh planet with unforgiving weather conditions and dangerous animal life, but it was on this backdrop that the Cardassian race developed and thrived. The planet was laid waste in 2357 by the Breen, but through hard work and extensive terraforming, it has become a center of commerce and industry once again, with refugees and others returning to build new lives. The Capital city of Lakat is now the largest known city in the Alpha Quadrant, and the planet's economic productivity is the heart of the Union that surrounds it.
