The surface of Arkaria

Arkaria was an inhabited planet and the homeworld of the humanoid Arkarians and the Arkarian horn fowl. Arkaria Base was a Starfleet commanded facility on the planet's surface and controlled the Remmler Array orbiting the planet. According to Data, Arkaria featured some interesting weather patterns and its ambient temperatures were slightly above what was considered comfortable for Humans.

In 2369, the USS Enterprise-D arrived at Arkaria to be serviced by the Remmler Array. During the procedure, Arkaria Base was temporarily seized by Arkarian terrorists in league with a group attempting to steal trilithium resin from the Enterprise. (TNG: "Starship Mine")

According to the script for this episode, the pronunciation for Arkaria was "ARE-care-ee-uh". [1]
Although the planet hosted a Starfleet-run facility, it had never been clarified on screen whether Arkaria was also a member of the Federation. The novel New Worlds, New Civilizations mentioned Arkarians as participating in a Starfleet Academy marathon in 2323, though.
