Korma was a planet in the Cardassian Union and the location of a Cardassian outpost.

In 2372, a conference between the Cardassians and the Bajorans was held there to share intelligence on the Klingons. During the conference, the outpost was attacked and every building on the planet destroyed by Klingon forces, with no survivors. The outpost had been defended by several system-5 disruptors, which were disabled in the attack. One of those disruptors was salvaged by the freighter Groumall and used successfully against one of the Klingon ships responsible. (DS9: "Return to Grace")

This was a binary system with a F-class star and a B-class star.
