Vulcan's Forge (or simply The Forge) is a vast desert canyon on the planet Vulcan. The Forge is where, according to historical record, Surak began his pilgrimage 1,800 years ago.

In 2154, Jonathan Archer and T'Pol travelled to The Forge to track down members of the Syrrannite movement, thought to be responsible for the bombing of the Earth embassy on Vulcan. They discovered that the Syrrannites had taken refuge in the T'Karath Sanctuary, until its destruction by the Vulcan High Command. (ENT: "The Forge", "Awakening")

In 2237, a young Spock travelled on Vulcan's Forge during his kahs-wan, or Vulcan maturity test. (TAS: "Yesteryear")

In 2374, Worf proposed that he and Jadzia Dax undertake a hiking trip across Vulcan's Forge for their honeymoon. Dax rejected the idea as entailing too much suffering. (DS9: "Change of Heart")

According to text commentary by Michael and Denise Okuda on the ENT Season 4 DVD, the Forge was formed by the nuclear war that devastated Vulcan during the Time of Awakening.
The Forge also relates to the space station found in the game Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force which is made up of lots of different starship's hulls.
