Coppelius, also called Ghulion IV, was the fourth planet in the Ghulion system.

The planet was orbited by two red moons. It was a class M planet that was smaller, but denser, than Earth. While Soji Asha was undergoing the Zhal Makh, she had a vision that this planet had electrical storms as part of its weather patterns, though the natural environment was quite sunny, with a hot desert-like environment. (PIC: "The Impossible Box", "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1")

After the Federation banned synthetic life in 2385, Doctor Bruce Maddox came to this world with Altan Inigo Soong and established Coppelius Station, where they created a new generation of organic synths. This facility showed up in the dreams of the android Soji Asha. The Romulans concluded it to be her home. (PIC: "The Impossible Box", "Nepenthe", "Broken Pieces")

General Oh led a warbird squadron to destroy the planet's population of synths, but encountered orchids and a fleet of Starfleet starships led by the USS Zheng He. (PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 1", "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2")

According to showrunner Michael Chabon, Coppelius is a reference to the short story "The Sandman", written by E.T.A. Hoffman in 1816. [1]
