"If the Cardassian people are responsible for these acts of terrorism... if Damar and his fanatics have turned them against us, then it's the people who should be punished."

Lakarian City was a major city on Cardassia Prime. Its leisure facilities included an amusement center – one to which Gul Dukat had been planning to take his son, Mekor, for his eleventh birthday in 2371. (DS9: "Defiant")

In 2375, following the Cardassian Liberation Front's sabotage of the planet's power systems, which caused a planet-wide blackout, the city was leveled by Jem'Hadar troops, on the order of the Founder in command on the planet. All two million inhabitants were killed "in a matter of seconds". This action provoked the defection of the Cardassian military, and a planetary revolt, ultimately turning the tide of the Battle of Cardassia.

When Ekoor and his Cardassian troops turned on their Jem'Hadar allies and killed them several hours later, Ekoor said "that's for Lakarian City." (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

Lakarian City appears in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Mission Gamma novel Cathedral.
According to the script for "Defiant", Lakarian was pronounced as "luh-KAR-ee-on".
