A Class M planet considered by many to be one of the most beautiful in the galaxy, Deneva was colonized by Humans[1] in the 22nd century,[2] and later became a Federation world, and was used as a freighting line base in the region.[1] Deneva, the third planet orbiting Kappa Fornacis in the Beta Quadrant,[3] served as a key supply station for many Earth Cargo Service ships, including the E.C.S. Horizon.[2] Freighters would make regular trips from Deneva carrying supplies to the nearby asteroid belt for the miners stationed there, and bringing cargo out. Montgomery Scott was an engineering advisor on a couple of those freighter runs.[1] Sometimes referred to as Deneva Prime, the world was known in part for its lush geothermic grottoes. T'Pol once compared the steam vents on the rogue planet Dakala to that geological feature.[4]

Deneva boasted a population of over 1 million by the 23rd century. Aurelan and George Samuel Kirk were among the colonists, though in 2258 they were victims of an infestation of neural parasites that caused mass insanity and many deaths in the colony. The Kirks managed to escape infection by hiding in the sewage tunnels beneath the capital city,[5] but by the time George’s brother, Captain James T. Kirk of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, arrived, Aurelan and young Peter Kirk had also been infected. They learned that the large single-celled creatures controlled the actions of their Human hosts with intense pain. An infested colonist had killed himself trying to drive the organism from his body by flying himself into the Denevan sun, and that led the Enterprise personnel to discover that the parasites were adversely affected by ultraviolet radiation. The crew placed 210 satellites around the planet to bombard the surface with intense ultraviolet radiation, and succeeded in eradicating the infestation, saving the Kirk family's lives in the process.[6]
