Background information

In the script of "The Augments", this planet was described as having a "blue-green" coloration.

The planet's coastline when visible from orbit is actually taken from Earth's eastern Aegean Sea, including the islands of Lesbos and Xios. The computer display of the planet shows a map similar to a large part of Earth, with clear parallels to the Indian subcontinent, the Arabian Peninsula, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and Northeast Africa.

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 192) classified the Qu'Vat planet as a M-class planet.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 62) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 27, 30; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Qu'Vat's primary star was a K-class star. According to a map of the Klingon Empire – prepared by the Scribe K'Tark for the Klingon High Council in the Year of Kahless 893 (2266) – Qu'Vat was identified as a Klingon star.
