Sarpedion V

Planets List
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Sarpedion V1

The fifth planet of the Sarpedion planetary system, located within Cardassian space. Sarpedion V was the headquarters of the Cardassian Twelfth Order during the Dominion war. As such, it was considered to be one of the most heavily fortified locations in the entire Cardassian Union.1

In 2375, Chancellor Gowron planned a direct assault on Sarpedion V. He ordered General Martok to lead the attack with a force of fifteen Vorcha-class cruisers, a force level that Gowron thought would 'barely scratch' the defences.1

This order led Worf to accuse Gowron of reckless disregard for his men. The two fought, and Worf killed Gowron. Worf declined the Chancellorship, placing Martok in the leadership position in his place. The attack was thus never carried out.1
