Nuria sees her homeworld, Mintaka III, from orbit

A homeworld, or home planet, was the planet, moon, or other celestial body from which a person or species originated. For example, Earth was the homeworld of the Human and Voth species, Andoria of the Andorians and the Aenar, and Qo'noS of the Klingons. (Star Trek: The Original Series; VOY: "Distant Origin"; ENT: "The Aenar"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In some cases, more than one intelligent species originated from the same planet. Examples of this were Trill, which featured the humanoid Trill as well as the symbionts, and Xindus, home to six extant species of sentient beings. (DS9: "Equilibrium"; ENT: "The Shipment", "Azati Prime")

In order for a celestial body to be a homeworld, it did not have to be the site where a species evolved, but where the cultural and social origin of a certain species was localized, as was the case with the Romulans, who originated as Vulcans on the planet Vulcan, but moved to Romulus thousands of years ago. (TOS: "Return to Tomorrow")

In the event of the sudden loss of one's homeworld, a new one would sometimes be settled. The Xindi, for example, spend more than a century searching for a new homeworld during the Great Diaspora after the destruction of Xindus in the 2030s. (ENT: "The Shipment", "Azati Prime") This was not always the case; the El-Aurians, after losing their homeworld to the Borg, scattered across the galaxy instead. (TNG: "Q Who")

In the alternate reality, survivors of the Destruction of Vulcan colonized a new planet that was christened New Vulcan. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

Ardani notes

Thad's imaginary homeworld

Thaddeus Troi-Riker, who was born and raised on starships, was fascinated with the concept of living on a homeworld, since that was something he never had. He was a very imaginative child, and he even created his own fantasy homeworld, Ardani, that he pretended he lived on. He also invented twelve languages for the various inhabitants of his fantasy world. (PIC: "Nepenthe")
