Xita had a long tradition of soapbox car racing, holding two well-known weekly races: the Grabvine Gateway and the Fire Mountain Rally, both of which draws thousands of people along the course. It was also home to the Darth Mall and a border planet to the Iron Fang and the Dark Star Counties. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "At the Soapbox Races")
The first major engagement of the U'lanna Campaign took place in the Xita system, resulting in a victory of the 100th Tactical Wing over an U'lanna fleet, led by the Jem'Hadar battleship, Beta-23. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Ancient Horrors")
Xita was named after the capital city of Eldeon in Titan-Rose, Xita Refuge.
