Daran V was the inhabited fifth planet of the Daran system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. This was the homeworld for a native species which, prior to stardate 5476, was counted at 3.724 billion individuals.
In 2268, the crew of the USS Enterprise discovered the 10,000 year-old Fabrini asteroid vessel, the Yonada, 396 days away from Daran V. The vessel had veered off course and was about to impact Daran V, killing all of the planet's population. Fortunately, the Yonada's course was altered away from Daran V by the actions of the crew of the Enterprise. (TOS: "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky")
