Shariha is a former Kilrathi colony in the Epsilon Sector. It defected to the Terran Confederation during the Terran-Kilrathi War in 2668.

Along with several other frontier colonies, the Sharihan government grew discontent with the policies of the corrupt regime of the Kilrathi Empire, and joined K'arakh, N'Tanya and Ghorah Khar in their efforts to join the Terrans. The Kilrathi sought to regain control of the planet by subduing the Separatist leadership on Ghorah Khar in a costly campaign that lasted for over a decade.

After the Terrans successfully fought off the Loyalist forces at Ghorah Khar, Shariha formally joined the Terran Confederation.
