Havas-Kul orbits a pulsar on a cycle of several thousand years. On its orbit around the star, planet passes through a nebula and collects matter from it. It has a highly eccentric orbital path which takes it out of the system's habitable zone for a period of a thousand years. This corresponds with the Hur'q hibernation cycle.
The planet's core is largely metallic while the surface lacks any metals, liquids or complex compounds. Thermobaric and tetryonic radiation from the nebula bombard the planet surface making it inhospitable for most species. However, the conditions are not as harsh as on a standard Demon-class planet.
The planet's interior is a complex hive of artificial tunnels dug by the Hur'q. This, combined with the nebula's interference, hides any Hur'q activity from sensors.
Due to the radiation, the Hur'q used to subsist mainly on a type of fungus which could withstand the intense radiation on the planet. That fungus was removed from the ecosystem by the Dominion in hopes of forcing the Hur'q into servitude.
The planet's moon has been partly destroyed and fragmented. All that remains is bare rock, having been stripped of any useful compounds by the Hur'q.
- “Doomed to Repeat” (mentioned only): The Female Changeling's Masan Research Reports discuss the planet and their first encounters with the Hur'q there.
- “Quark's Lucky Seven” (mentioned only): Julian Bashir's analysis of the Sword of Kahless manages to identify Havas-Kul as the Hur'q homeworld on the basis of the unique combination of radiation found on the sword.
- “Tenebris Torquent”: A team dispatched by the Alliance, led by Captain Kira Nerys and Garak, investigates Havas-Kul.
- “Home” (mentioned only): The future of Havas-Kul is discussed at the meeting on Deep Space 9 following the resolution to the Hur'q conflict. The Havas-Kul sector is declared independent from the Dominion with a neutral zone surrounding it. The Alliance assists in maintaining the neutral zone and repairing the planet. Lukari offer to use their protomatter technology to assist Julian Bashir in restoring the planet's ecosystem.
Havas-Kul's only natural moon, stripped of any useful metals by the Hur'q
- The system does not lie within the current Gamma Quadrant sector space. It is accessible from the location of Garak's Fleet in the Gavara Sector, indicating it as the closest point to the system's real location.
