In ST-OM episode 39 The Voyage of the ShiKhar The Starship goes to Ardana to investigate an alien artifact.

The stardate attached to ST-OM Episode 39 is 49457.1, which places it roughly in the second week of June 2372

This places the visit of the USS ShiKhar Approximately 103 years after the visit of the Constitution class USS Enterprise to that world.

2269Edit

Ardana was the home of the Federation's main Zenite supply. While the City-Dweller caste lived in Stratos, the cloud city, and lived lives of leisure, intellectual pursuits and the arts, the Troglodyte caste performed the labor and mined Zenite under harsh, dangerous conditions.

Stratos, the Sky City

LaterEdit

Following the visit of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701, the Ardans, with Federation support, undertook a massive reform campaign. Mining and other forms of labor were upgraded with modern tools and safety protocols. The castes were integrated and then abolished.

Because Stratos was seen as a symbol of city-dweller elitism, it was largely abandoned as a dwelling continued in use as administration center and museum.

2372Edit

In the intervening years, Ardana went from am oppressive caste ridden world, to a more sedate and mundane but just and tolerant Federation style world.

The Cloud City of Stratos was mainly luxury hotels, shopping and entertainment venues, as well as housing the planetary government.

Most of the people were born and raised on the surface of Ardana, and lived lives comparable to any other long settled Federation world.

MetaEdit

This world was picked as the setting for the beginning of ST-OM: "The Voyage of ShiKhar" as a shout out, or a reference to TOS.
