A Class M Delta Quadrant planet with a spacefaring race, several heavily populated areas, mistakenly targeted in 2372 by the Dreadnought missile as its original Alpha Quadrant target, Aschelon V. Its leader is "First Minister," its defenses nowhere near enough to fend off the weapon since its peaceful people do not arm themselves. They anticipate 2 million casualties centered on the target site, its Eastern Continent, but Torres stops the weapon just in time.
