General Order 7

A file about Starfleet General Order 7

Starfleet General Order 7 was a directive that forbade contact with the planet Talos IV. It specifically stated, "No vessel under any condition, emergency or otherwise, is to visit Talos IV."

General Order 7 was made part of Starfleet policy following the visit of the USS Enterprise to Talos IV in 2254. The rationale for the order was top secret, known only to Starfleet Command, and could only be revealed to subordinate officers upon a certified direct order issued by a flag officer. A file about the directive was also written (see full text below). However, not even it explained the reason for General Order 7. Usually kept locked, the file needed to be opened using a specific device.

In 2267, this was the only Starfleet regulation that carried the threat of capital punishment. (TOS: "The Menagerie, Part I")
