Jouret IV

Jouret IV was the fourth planet in the Jouret system of the Beta Quadrant. There were no known avifaunal or crawling vermicular lifeforms on Jouret IV.

In 2366, it was an inhabited planet. Founded over a century before, the New Providence colony was one of the Federation's outermost colonies.

That year, Jouret IV was attacked and the New Providence colony was destroyed by the Borg. Before its destruction, the colony sent a distress signal which was intercepted by the USS Enterprise-D. The starship responded to the call; however, by the time the ship arrived it found the colony totally destroyed. An investigation confirmed this was the work of the Borg. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds"; DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")

In 2376, the location of Jouret IV was labeled on a star chart in astrometrics on USS Voyager. (VOY: "Child's Play", okudagram)



Background information

Jouret (mislabeled "Journet") was located in the Beta Quadrant on star charts seen in the Star Trek: Discovery episode "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" and in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends". The colony's name was mentioned with the system's name in the former chart.


In the computer game Star Trek Online, a starbase-sized Iconian gateway was revealed near the planet in 2409 which was previously hidden in subspace. It was hinted that readings of this hidden gateway drew the Borg to this system decades earlier in the first place.
