Dorvan V is the fifth planet in the Dorvan system. The planet was settled by a group of Native Americans from Earth settled on Dorvan V, having searched for a new home since 2070. The settlers were worried about losing their traditional culture on an increasingly globalized Earth, and this was the main reason for their quest. As a result, in the 26th century, the population still lived much like their ancestors did many centuries before. The population agreed to let several Krenim War children settle on their world.
