Pacifica was an inhabited ocean planet, renowned for its warm blue waters and fine white beaches. Some considered it a jewel of the galaxy. It was a Federation planet.

In 2364, the USS Enterprise-D was en route to Pacifica for a scientific mission when Captain Jean-Luc Picard diverted it to Dytallix B for a secret meeting. Picard canceled the visit to Pacifica due to ensuing events, causing the leader of the planet, Governor Delaplane, to contact Starfleet Command. (TNG: "Conspiracy")

In 2365, a conference was held on Pacifica concerning the admission of the Antedians into the Federation. The Enterprise-D was assigned to transport an Antedian dignitary and his aide to the planet, as well as Ambassador Lwaxana Troi, on behalf of the Betazed government. She would state that she wished to marry William T. Riker on the shores of Pacifica's Western Sea, though she was affected by the Betazoid phase at the time. (TNG: "Manhunt")
