The Badlands are a region of space along the border between the United Federation of Planets and the Cardassian Union, that are known for intense plasma storms and gravitational anomalies. For that reason, it is commonly avoided by most interstellar traffic.

Following the end of the Federation-Cardassian War and the subsequent formation of the Maquis in dispute with border changes, the Badlands became an important area due to their disruption to sensors, making ships in the area very hard to find.

In 2398, following the end of the Cardassian Civil War, Legate Toran took refuge in this area with his few remaining ships to avoid detection by other Cardassian forces.
