Donatu V was a class M planet located in the space of the galaxy's Beta Quadrant, the fifth planet in orbit of the Donatu star system, near Sherman's Planet and the Federation-Klingon border in the Beta Quadrant.
In 2244, Donatu V was the location of an inconclusive battle between Starfleet and Klingon forces for control of the planet. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles"). Captain Rollin Bannock of the USS Republic (NCC-1371) devised a flanking maneuver that allowed Federation forces to overcome the Klingons and force them to withdraw. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Republic)
- The Star Trei Roleplaying Game Player's Guide states the battle as occurring in 2242 and being a decisive victory for the Federation.
At the height of the Dominion War in 2374, the IKS Rotarran was ordered to escort a convoy of Klingon freighters, which included the IKS Par'tok, to Donatu V. (DS9 episode: "Sons and Daughters"; DS9 - The Dominion War novelization: Call to Arms...)
