Soukara was an inhabited planet in the Soukara system. During the Dominion War, this planet was in Dominion-controlled space and was the location for a Dominion base. The planet had at least two moons and a nearby asteroid field, which could be used to penetrate the Dominion sensor grid undetected. The base was located in the middle of a jungle, and was protected by transport inhibitors.

In 2374, Worf and Jadzia Dax were sent on a covert mission to Soukara to recover a Cardassian defector, Lasaran, who claimed to know the location and false identity of every Founder in the Alpha Quadrant. Unfortunately, Dax was severely injured by a Jem'Hadar patrol, and Worf chose to abort the mission to seek medical care for her. (DS9: "Change of Heart")

Later that year, Romulan Senator Vreenak met with Weyoun on Soukara. On the way back he took a secret detour to Deep Space 9 at Captain Benjamin Sisko's request. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

According to the script for "Change of Heart", the pronunciation for Soukara was "sue-KAR-uh".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 46) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 18-19; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Soukara system was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
