Lambda Paz surface

Lambda Paz (also known as Pentarus 3B) was a moon of Pentarus III. The Pentarus system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Barely class M, its surface was a desert with an average temperature of 55 °Celsius. In 2367, the mining shuttle Nenebek, carrying Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Wesley Crusher to negotiations on Pentarus V, crash-landed on Lambda Paz after suffering a thruster failure.

Picard and Crusher, along with shuttle captain Dirgo, sought shelter in a nearby cave that contained a fountain of water. However, the water was protected by a force field and an energy sentry that first injured Picard, and then killed Dirgo when they attempted to access the water. Crusher eventually found a way to deactivate the fountain's defenses using a modified tricorder, sustaining Picard's life long enough for them to be rescued by the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Final Mission")

Pentarus, the primary of the Pentarus system, was on a star chart that was seen in Star Trek Generations. The star chart depicted the location of planets, stars, and star systems in the Alpha Quadrant. Based on the dimensions of the circles used to mark locations on the star chart seen in "Generations", this star was located relatively near to the USS Enterprise-D.
