Tekna is a Federation Mining Planet rich in high demand heavy metals. Throughout the years the controller of the planet had gone back and forth but it became a Federation planet officially after the Dominion War. Full scale mining began shortly after that, which ever since has yielded in high profit for the Federation. Currently it is home to over 5 million people.
Tekna was known for its large deposits of dilithium, platinum, gold, quartz, latinum, and a variety of other metals and minerals. The extent of these deposits, however, was only approximately 40% determined from surveys done on the planet.
