Bachman's Planet is the most habitable planet in Bachman's Star system. Though lacking in heavy metals, the biosphere is optimum for almost all forms of agriculture and horticulture. It is now host to a sizable Federation colony and is considered a strong rival to Deneva as the garden spot of the Federation.

This colony is one of the Federation's main agricultural "breadbasket" planets (or "agri-planet" for short), supplying scores of less fertile Federation colony worlds in its stellar neighbourhood.
