Ayer's Rock is a marginally habitable M-class world on the Federation-Klingon border in the Archanis sector. Its proximity to the Klingon border and centuries of volatile relations with the Klingon Empire have worked consistently to keep the world of Ayer's Rock off of any lists for terraforming projects and intense migration, much to the satisfaction of the inhabitants of this world.

Settled by people wanting a more 'down to earth' existence, Ayer's Rock mostly eschews the trappings of modern technologies, its citizenry preferring to mostly stick with wind, water and muscle power for their day-to-day lives. What limited modern technology does exist on the world is primarily related to the limited healthcare system the singular subspace transceiver used to keep appraised of local interstellar matters that could impact life on Ayer's Rock.

Landing

The capital of Ayer's Rock is the township of Landing, named like so many other planetary capitals across the Federation for being the spot where the first colonists set down upon arriving at their chosen destination. Landing looks like it could be lifted out of any Wild West drama with its wooden buildings, dusty main street and the constant presence of horses as the primary means of conveyance. While considered to be the planetary capital, for most of the population spread around Ayer's Rock it is just as distant as the Federation is from their daily lives.
