Dakota was an Earth-like core world in the Anpetu Wi system. Native Americans, primarily Cherokee and Sioux, founded the original colony. The Red Cloud family were prominent. The Compact Navy had a large presence in the system, headquartered in Ken-Tuck-Ee City. It included the Dakota Yards.

The Alcubierre stopped in the system during the mission to rescue John Farno from FarighaLinda Havak and Patty Friese traveled to Dakota to meet with senior Naval leaders and Tol Germanicus to get additional equipment.
