|Jeraddo (Lunar V)|
|Location:||In orbit of Bajor|
Jeraddo (or Lunar V) was the originally inhabited fifth moon of Bajor.
In 2369, the Bajoran Provisional Government decided to utilize the moon's molten core to provide much needed energy for Bajor. However, this process would leave the moon uninhabitable. The inhabitants agreed to leave and were relocated elsewhere in the Bajoran system. 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.

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")

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.
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.
