The planet Kirlos—an artificial world built by a mysterious long-dead race called the Ariantu. Kirlos is now home to many races from both the Federation and the K’vin Hegemony, who have enjoyed years of peaceful co-existence and profitable trade. The planet also holds a wealth of undiscovered archaeological treasures, which the U.S.S. Enterprise and its crew are dispatched to help uncover.
