A lush and hospitable world without native intelligence, Deneva (also known as Deneva Prime and Kappa Fornacis III), charted and named by the Vulcans, was colonized by Humans in the early mid-22nd century, in order to establish mining operations in its star system's asteroid belt.
Deneva quickly became one of Earth's most economically indispensable and culturally influential colonies, in the Beta Quadrant's Kappa Fornacis star system. (ST reference: Star Charts, TOS reference: Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual, ENT episode: "Horizon") In fact, Deneva's status continued to rise until, by the 24th century, it was considered one of the core worlds of the United Federation of Planets. Sadly, the planet and its populace were annihilated during the Borg Invasion of 2381.
As the colony continued to grow in the late 22nd and early 23rd centuries, a scientific base started to develop on Deneva, which drew many scientific minds from all over the Federation. It was in the labs of Carter Winston's Resources Corporation of Deneva where the energy-channeling properties of dilithium were first observed by Federation researchers. (TOS reference: Spaceflight Chronology, TOS - Worlds Apart novel: The Final Reflection)
Disaster struck Deneva in 2267 when a visiting transport ship from Ingraham B brought deadly blastoneuron neural parasites with them that took over the colonists' minds, making them build spaceships so that they could spread their influence. Fortunately, their plans were halted by Captain James T. Kirk (whose brother Sam and family were stationed on Deneva) and the crew of the USS Enterprise. Deaths from the invasion numbered close to twenty-one thousand, including Deneva's governor Newton Armitage, Sam Kirk, and his wife Aurelan. Deputy governor Helena Albrecht took over leadership of the colony. (TOS episode & Star Trek 2 novelization: Operation -- Annihilate!, TOS - Crucible novel: Provenance of Shadows)
Following the end of the parasite crisis, the citizens of Deneva got back on their feet and the colony continued. By the 2380s, two Denevans had served as President of the United Federation of Planets: Alohk Ixan from 2281 to 2284, and Adam Zagrin from 2301 to 2308.

Deneva and its entire population fell victim to the Borg during their invasion of the Alpha Quadrant in 2381, its entire population slaughtered and its surface geography reduced to ash. Among the deceased were the family of USS Enterprise-E security chief Jasminder Choudhury; Elieth, one of the sons of Titan tactical officer Tuvok; and Elieth's wife, Ione Kitain.

In the mirror universe, Empress Sato I was to have been exiled to Deneva following her overthrow by General Shran. However, she was captured by anti-Empire rebels en route. (ENT - Glass Empires novel: Age of the Empress)
As of 2379, Deneva was serving as the headquarters of the Galactic Commonwealth following the Tripartite Armistice that ended the war between the Terran Rebellion and the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. (ST - Mirror Universe novel: Rise Like Lions)
