Aschelan V was the fifth planet in its star system. This Cardassian planet, the home of a fuel depot, was located in the Alpha Quadrant. It was near the Badlands.

In 2370, B'Elanna Torres reprogrammed the Cardassian missile Dreadnought to destroy the depot on Aschelan V. However, the missile failed to reach its target, as one day after its launch it was swept into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker. There, it locked onto the similar planet Rakosa V, mistaking it to be Aschelan V due to their similar sizes, radiothermic signatures, atmospheric composition, and more. (VOY: "Dreadnought")

This planet was only mentioned in dialogue.
According to Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", p. 18-19; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the primary of the Aschelan system was a K-class star. According to a map of the Cardassian Union – prepared by an anonymous astrography clerk, from the Cardassian Central Archives, in 2364 – Aschelan was identified as a Cardassian system.
