Orias

Cardassian star whose system of at least three planets, otherwise an oasis in a Class-M desert, is learned by Maquis to be a secret shipyard for Cardassian hardliners -- apart from the mainstream Central Command. Tom Riker takes the stolen Defiant there to find out; though he stymied, his effort helps Commander Sisko and Dukat learn that the whole system is classified and sealed by the Obsidian Order in 2366.
