The Fundamental Declarations of the Martian colonies was a historical legal document from Mars history. Laws pertaining to the Human rights of the accused were enumerated in this document. It was one of the legal authorities cited by Attorney-at-Law Samuel T. Cogley at Captain Kirk's general court martial in 2267. (TOS: "Court Martial")

During its fourth season, Star Trek: Enterprise hoped to do a story about this historic event, but the episode never materialized. The idea was that Mars would aim the comets used for terraforming at Earth, in a Cuban missile crisis-type scenario. Some elements of the story found their way into "Terra Prime". ("Terra Prime" audio commentary, ENT Season 4 Blu-ray special features)
A conjectural version of the declaration was printed in the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, which dated it to 2062.
