The surface of Jeraddo (Lunar V)

Jeraddo (or Lunar V) was the fifth moon of Bajor, which was briefly inhabited for a time in the 24th century. (DS9: "Progress")


Mullibok claimed he was the first person to settle the moon, fourty years before 2369, after escaping from a labour camp and stowing away on a Cardassian survey ship exploring the system for possible mining sites. Initially facing starvation, he eventually managed to make the land farmable. Over the years, more people followed, reaching a total population of 50 by 2369.

Also located on Jeraddo was the Lunar V base, a small camp of the Bajoran Resistance, which stored a few sub-impulse raiders there. Furthermore, the Palukoo, a dog-sized arachnid, existed there as one of the indigenous lifeforms. (DS9: "The Siege")

Shortly after the liberation of Bajor, the Bajoran Provisional Government with the help of the Federation decided to utilize the moon's molten core to provide much needed energy for Bajor. It was expected this could warm a few hundred thousand Bajoran homes in winter.

However, this process would release carbon and sulphur compounds that would make the air unbreathable and thus leave the moon uninhabitable. 47 of the 50 inhabitants agreed to leave and were relocated. Three people, however, refused to leave their home: Mullibok, Baltrim and Keena. They had no contact with Bajor and were unaware that the Cardassians had left the system several months earlier. After the Bajoran Militia attempted to remove them by force, Mullibok was injured. Without Mullibok to care for them, Baltrim and Keena were evacuated to Bajor. To force Mullibok to leave, Major Kira Nerys set his cottage on fire. Mullibok left and Jeraddo became uninhabitable. (DS9: "Progress")


Background informationEdit

According to the script, the pronunciation for Jeraddo was "JUR-ah-doe". [1]

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 42, Jeraddo was classified as a M class moon. After the moon was converted into an energy-production facility, the classification for this moon was changed to Class Y. However, the book also lists the Lunar V/Bajor VIIe moon as being a class D body, the same class as Earth's Moon, on page 23.


Jeraddo was featured prominently in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Millennium novels, where one of the three Red Orbs was hidden on an old settlement on the moon, and was subsequently discovered by Sisko when a Cardassian scientist tries to acquire it.

A version of these same events takes place in the computer game Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Fallen, in which Sisko and Worf must locate a Pah-wraith temple on the devastated moon containing an ancient mural that depicts the Orbs of the Pah-wraiths, as well as the formation of a second Celestial Temple.

Jeraddo was also seen in the video game Star Trek: Legacy, in the second-to-last level, set during the Borg invasion of the Bajoran system in 2380.
