A planet (Vulcan)

A planet, also known as a planetary body or world, was the common designation for a type of celestial body which usually orbited a star. Planets varied greatly in size, composition, and environment, and could be accompanied by one or more moons.

By 2399, a septillion planets were known to Federation science. (PIC: "Absolute Candor")

Planets could be changed to a class M environment by terraforming. (TNG: "Home Soil")

The Federation had numerous different classifications for planets depending on their mass, composition, surface environment and atmospheric compounds.

In 2259, in the alternate reality, when targeted comm bursts were broadcast to distant planets from Starfleet starships, planetary information was displayed on the main viewscreen, such as the class and status as a living planet (a planet with life), its moons, the native intelligent species, the star system, sector and sector block locations. Geographical information was also displayed. (Star Trek Into Darkness display graphic)
