Korvat was the site of negotiations between the Federation and the Klingon Empire in 2289 whose aim was an end to the decades-old cold war between the two. The Federation was represented in the negotiations by Curzon Dax, while the Klingons were represented by Kang, along with Koloth.
Though ultimately unsuccessful, the negotiations did provide a sort of detente that created the conditions that allowed for more serious negotiations several years later when the Klingon moon of Praxis exploded, threatening the survival of their homeworld.
The meeting also sparked a long friendship and mutual admiration between Curzon Dax and the Klingon negotiators that was later renewed by Jadzia Dax. (DS9 episode: "Blood Oath", ST novel: Excelsior: Forged in Fire)
During the Borg attack on the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, Korvat was a target of the Borg Collective. While at Ramatis III, USS Enterprise-E security chief Jasminder Choudhury suggested that Korvat was the next target; although first officer Worf disagreed based on what information they had, Captain Picard set course for Korvat, as it would be the only planet the ship could reach in time to make a difference. Korvat ended up being one of five simultaneous targets by Borg cubes, and the Enterprise arrived too late to save the USS Alexey Leonov and USS Gibraltar along with ten million planetary inhabitants, although roughly twenty nine thousand survivors remained scattered in highland and isolated areas.
