Volan III

Planet colonized by Federation settlers and later turned over to Cardassia as part of the newly drawn peace treaty border -- a move whose repercussions drive its indignant, unmoving and vulnerable settlers to organize the Maquis. Their village, built in the shadow of a dominant mountain, includes almost all one-story buildings with a few two-story towers and overheard, long-distance tube walkways or moving paths. Settlers seen there included a Vulcan, a bony, forehead-ridged woman of an unidentified species, and humans -- including a Native American; later, Maquis colonists reveal themselves: a half-Klingon woman, another Indian, a Bolian, and a Zalkonian are spotted among the humans.
