The site of a failed Skagaran colony (later known as North Star) was established in the 19th century as a colony for the Skagarans in the Delphic Expanse.

HistoryEdit

In addition to Skagaran colonists, the colony had a population of Humans who had been kidnapped from the north-western United States of America in 1853 and were intended to serve as a slave or worker class. A man named Cooper Smith led the humans in a rebellion against the Skagarans. The humans killed many or most of the Skagarans, including men, women, and children, and destroyed their ship. In the wake of the rebellion, the humans became the dominant species of the colony. (ST reference: Star Trek Encyclopedia; ENT episode: "North Star")

The colony was discovered by the Enterprise (NX-01) in 2153, when the ship was seeking to locate the Xindi, who had recently attacked Earth. Upon its discovery by the Enterprise, the colony had a population of about 1,000 Skagarans and 6,000 Humans who resided in several settlements or towns all within a day or two's journey of each other. As its inhabitants had been isolated from Earth for centuries, the technology of the colony was still rooted in the 19th century. Moreover, settlements were reminiscent of the old west in the the United States. The planet on which the colony was located had a dry climate, similar to the North American southwest.

Sometime after the encounter with Enterprise in 2153, the colony had been named North Star by the inhabitants. In the 2330s, the USS Stargazer stopped at the colony to pick up a wooden desk for Captain Humphrey Laughton. By the 2380s, the North Star colony had established contact with the Federation, with one of the inhabitants, Ethan Kyzak, having joined Starfleet.
