Draylon II was the inhabited second planet in its star system. Located in the Bajoran sector, in the Alpha Quadrant, the planet was near Sefalla Prime. This uninhabited M-class planet was colonized in 2370 by the Skrreea.

Draylon II had a stable orbit, temperate climate, and very low surface radiation. In addition, this world had good soil for farming, a long growing season and mild winters.

When the Skrreea came through the Bajoran wormhole in 2370 and believed Bajor to be Kentanna, their mythical sanctuary, the Bajoran Provisional Government was forced to turn them away because Bajor was struggling to provide for its own people, let alone an additional three million Skrreea. Commander Benjamin Sisko of Starfleet and Major Kira Nerys of the Bajoran Militia suggested Draylon II as an alternative, but the Skrreea initially refused. However, after one of them, Tumak, was killed while attempting to land on Bajor forcefully, they reluctantly accepted the offer to settle on Draylon II. (DS9: "Sanctuary")

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 47) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Draylon system was a binary system with a pair of G-class stars. By 2378, Draylon II had been renamed to New Kentanna. In the late 24th century, it was an independent system.
