In the early days, when NASA's Kepler mission published several discoveries of Earth-like planets, on April 17 2014, NASA's Kepler Discovers First Earth-Size Planet In The 'Habitable Zone' of Another Star and on July 23, 2015, when NASA's Kepler mission confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun very similar to our star: NASA’s Kepler Mission Discovers Bigger, Older Cousin to Earth it was only a matter of time until the discovery of ViBel-7 would hit the news.
But the Son'a intend to abduct the Ba'ku in order to take the planet for themselves and for the Starfleet officials who all would like to regenerate their bodies. But they did not think of the loyalty of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E to the Prime Directive.
One of the nicer fragments in this overall B- rated movie depicts the ability of the Ba'Ku to "lose yourself in the moment", where time is being manipulated to an almost stand-still.
Similar to the Ba'ku's planet, ViBel-7 is part of the United Federation of Planets and falls under the Prime Directive. The planet's gravitational interaction with it's pink-ish Sun and 3 sister planets results in an extreme slow evolution of time, which is not the only reason of the Federation's ressearch. More intreguingly, the waters of ViBel-7 have regeneration abililties for in- and outworlders that go far beyond those discovered at the lands of the Ba'Ku.

The Mul are not indigenous to Vibel 7. They are colonizers from deep space They arrived at what was thought to be an uninhabited Planet they named Vibel 7 Their insertion point was on the far south east of the continent. Where they established a camp from which to explore. As time went by the colony grew and the harsh climate of the southeast shore forced many of the Mul to move inland. The name stuck and the main colony was named Inland. Over the centuries explorers from Inland moved deeper into the interior what they found shocked and amazed them. The Planet was not uninhabited. As near as the Mul could figure was that they arrived on Vibel 7 during a lower Paleolithic era. And the creatures of that era lived in underground and in cave structures. Over the millennium that had past since their arrival the indigenous people had evolved and where living in primeval tribal groups. Their prime directive was not to influence or culture being studied but the inhabitants of the planet were hostile and threatened the existence of the colony. They hide their technology but the mere existence of city of inland put the Muls at a significant advantage over the rest of the population. Muls cities began to spring up here and there, in areas could be fortified and secured, due to population growth. Around 60-70 me (Mul Era) the healing springs of Neiferleaf were discovered and developed. Whether the supreme council of Mul decided it was best to treat the colonists as no longer Mul or perhaps the people of Mul no longer had the will to explore deep space is unknown but soon the resupply ships stopped coming , the Mul's technology went into disrepair and the Mul were left to fend for themselves. Their culture eventually went into decline or was absorbed by the inhabitants of Vibel 7.
The Iton are the current inhabitants of the old Mul colony. They are the current generation of the Mul and have returned to Vibel 7 to observe the inhabitants their interactions on Vibel 7 are guided by the Prime Directive.
The Kel appear to be the first to have evolved and advanced . This was assumed by the Mul because the Kel traveled by boat from their Mainland so settle in the South-lands of the continent and were living in the lands around Neiferleaf when the Muls first discovered the springs. The Kel were/are an agrarian people. Druidic in their beliefs and tribal in their societal structure. Excellent craftsmen and navigators of the seas. The Northern portion of the Mainland of Kel is a wilderness area largely unexplored. Unsubstantiated reports of mythical creatures and an Elven culture have been attributed to this wilderness area.
The Dax came to the continent in two waves. The first wave known as the West Dax (they eventually settled in the lands West of Neiferleaf arrived after the Mul had fallen into decline around 450 MCD (Mul Colony Decline). They were feudalistic in their societal structure. Their belief system was dogmatic and based in a complex mythos.
The second wave came around 700 MCD, the East Dax were warrior raiders. Sufficient in strength to conquer but not in number to rule. They held the majority of the territory to the North and North east of the continent but in truth the people of those lands were the villagers they conquered only a small band of warriors were left in each major city to collect the taxes and lord over the people.
The Wal are complex. They are governed by a group of five Royals. Two twin Princes, Two twin Princesses and one other Prince or Princess. It is an Autocracy by committee. The Wal live in the solitude of the mountains . Their warriors and disciplined and courageous. Their metal work gleam in the rising Sun of the east and few dare attack them. Their mountains are the home of the one and only Dragon that inhabits Vibel.
Wilderness - known as "The Wylds". Little is known of the wilderness but those that have dared travel there come back with wild tales of mythical creatures and mythical races. (Dwarves, Faeries, Unicorn, and ______ )
The Southern most border of the wilderness is a mountain range that cuts straight across the continent. It is a shear cliff face an ascent into the unknown. Nothing that dwells there ever seems to have cause to leave and few that venture in return.
