How were Kira and Dax able to retrieve the fighter in The Siege if the surface was rendered uninhabitable in Progress? Or could Lunar V base be somewhere else entirely and not on Jeraddo? Starfleetjedi 07:56, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Speculation Edit

I removed the following speculative background note. --From Andoria with Love 19:24, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

The Bajoran nomenclatural term Jeraddo used for Lunar V, as created by series writer Peter Allan Fields, is likely a modification of the English-transliterated name Jerad or Jared (amongst other variations), itself taken from Hebrew name Yered meaning "descent", "to lower", "fall"; accounting to its real world etymological significance, Bajor's fifth moon was prominently featured in the computer game Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Fallen [as detailed below].

Jeraddo = Lunar V? Edit

What's the source for Jeraddo and Lunar V being the same moon? The script for "The Siege" calls it "Bajor's Moon", Lunar V could simply refer to the fifth base on it, and of course we know Jeraddo became uninhabitable in "Progress". - Mitchz95 (talk) 15:30, January 7, 2020 (UTC)

Star Trek Star Charts page 23 mentions Lunar V (Bajor VIIe). Since Jeraddo is known to be the fifth moon, that would mean "Bajor VIIe" is another name for Jeraddo. The novel Night of the Wolves claims that Lunar V is a base located on Jeraddo. --NetSpiker (talk) 07:37, January 9, 2020 (UTC)

Star Charts isn't canon, is it? It's not listed in Memory Alpha's content policy, at least. And I would argue that what we see on screen -- in this case, Dax and Kira walking around on "Lunar V" after Jeraddo became uninhabitable -- trumps the rest. - Mitchz95 (talk) 01:17, January 29, 2020 (UTC)
