The surface of Volan III

Type: Planet
Satellites: At least one moon
Location: Volan system

Volan III was the third planet in the Volan planetary system. This system was located on the Cardassian side of the Demilitarized Zone, and was the site of a Federation colony. This world had at least one moon. Lieutenant Commander Calvin Hudson, Starfleet's attache to the Federation colonies in the DMZ, was stationed on Volan III. There, he and various leaders from the other colonies met to discuss relevant matters, including the formation of the Maquis in 2370. That year, Gul Dukat took Commander Benjamin Sisko to Volan III to convince him that there were Federation colonists willing to commit acts of violence against the Cardassians, such as the destruction of the Bok'Nor. (DS9: "The Maquis, Part I")

Raymond Boone, or rather a Cardassian operative surgically altered to resemble him, settled with his family on Volan III to operate a ladarium mining sluice following his return from Cardassian custody after Setlik III. (DS9: "Tribunal")

The matte for Volan III was a reuse of matte created for Tau Cygna V in TNG: "The Ensigns of Command". As such, the tube-like structure running up the mountain might be identified as an aqueduct.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 47, the Volan system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Primary of this star was a Class M star. It had a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 as bright as Sol.
