Bandraginus V was a Vegan shipyard (PROSE: First Frontier) with a billion inhabitants, the Fourth Doctor calling it "a planet of a thousand million souls".

Around 1878, Zanak materialised around Bandraginus V and destroyed it, (PROSE: First Frontier) mining it for all its mineral wealth, including Oolion, an element only found on Bandraginus V and Qualactin. Following this, the Captain super-compressed it and added Bandraginus V to his collection. (TV: The Pirate Planet)

Behind the scenes Edit

The name "Bantraginus V" is likely a reference to "Santraginus V", the home for one of the key ingredients in Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster in Douglas Adams's The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The Pirate Planet was Douglas Adams' first contribution to Doctor Who.
