Cygnet, also referred to as Omega-1 Cygni XIV and noted in the Vulcan charts as Haurok leh-keh, is a class M Federation member planet, the fourteenth planet located in star system Omega-1 Cygni. This system is inhabited by a female-dominated civilization, the Cygnians.

The world was first charted by the Vulcans during their surveys and exploration of space where they noted the dominating matriarchy of the planet which had lasted for centuries. By the mid-22nd century, the planet was known for its advanced and highly ordered civilization. In 2155, the United Earth Starfleet vessel Enterprise came to Cygnet XIV in order to repair their warp drive. This first contact had some difficulty as the Cygneti representative could not take Human Captain Jonathan Archer seriously as he was a male. In order to repair their starship engine, Captain Archer had to temporarily "promote" Hoshi Sato to the position of captain with her and T'Pol engaged in negotiations with the Cygneti who ultimately agreed to allow the use of their most advanced ship repair yard in exchange for some exotic chemicals generated by the Enterprises warp engine.

In 2267, the USS Enterprise put in to Cygnet XIV for general repair and maintenance. During the overhaul, the planet's natives, deciding that the ship's computer lacked sufficient personality, modified it with a female one. This caused some annoyance to the crew, especially Captain Kirk, whom the computer often addressed as "dear", and Mr. Spock, who noted that the computer had "an unforntunate tendency to giggle."
