Narendra III was a class M planet in the Narendra system, located near the Federation-Klingon border. The planet's land mass was divided into twelve continents. Horbin was the name given to the planet when it had been part of the Zalkat Union. (VOY - The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella: The Third Artifact)
In 2344, Romulans launched a surprise attack on Narendra III, destroying the colony, as well as the USS Enterprise-C, which had responded to the distress call. This honorable sacrifice served to save the then-tenuous Federation-Klingon Alliance. (TNG episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise"; TLE novel: The Art of the Impossible; TOS novel: Vulcan's Heart)
In 2376, the fourth Malkus Artifact was found on the planet, after having been hidden there 90,000 years before (when the planet had been known as "Horbin"). Its discovery unleashed the consciousness of the ancient dictator Malkus the Mighty, enabling him to control the minds of the colonists. (TNG - The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella: The Final Artifact)
- The novel The Brave and the Bold implies that the Klingons had not settled Narendra III as of 2266. This was apparently contradicted by the Enterprise episode "Judgment", although it is possible that the planet changed hands during the Federation-Klingon wars.
