Berengaria VII (or simply Berengaria) was the inhabited seventh planet of the Berengarius system in the Alpha Quadrant. Classified as M Class, this Federation planet had no indigenous intelligent life, but possessed a flourishing ecosystem including a species of dragon-like flying reptiles.
Before or in 2104, a Vulcan science vessel surveyed Berengaria VII, describing its dragon-like creatures as over two hundred meters in length and breathing fire. In December 2154, Berengaria VII was to be scouted by the Starfleet ship Enterprise NX-01 as the site of the first in a proposed series of starbases. However, an incident with an Orion trader postponed or canceled this mission. (ENT: "Bound")
In 2293, Berengaria's location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart. During the Dominion War, the planet's strategic importance was considered to be on a par with Vulcan, Andor, and perhaps even Earth. In 2373, Kai Winn Adami asked Captain Benjamin Sisko rhetorically whether the Federation would sacrifice Berengaria to protect Bajor from the Dominion.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), Berengaria was at least a hundred light years from Sol, in or near Federation space, in the Alpha Quadrant, near Breen territory. In 2378, Berengaria VII was a Federation member. According to the The Worlds of the Federation, Berengaria VII had three moons, simply called "Alpha", "Beta" and "Gamma", and orbits a red giant star. It eventually became a Federation colony world, and subsequently a member world in its own right.
The Pocket ENT novel Beneath the Raptor's Wing has this planet as the site of a starbase and it was fought over twice by the Coalition of Planets and the Romulans during the first year of the Earth-Romulan War.
Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume 2 states that Elias Vaughn was born on Berengaria VII and lived there as a child. It also calls the dragon-like reptile indigenous to the planet Draco Berengarius. The TNG novel Losing the Peace mentions a failed Borg attack on Berengaria in 2381.
