The location of Marcos XII on "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Marcos XII was the inhabited twelfth planet of the Marcos system. The system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Starbase 4 was located near this planet.

This planet was colonized by the Federation prior to 2268, and had a population of millions. It was the first planet which the evil angel-being Gorgan decided to conquer once he was set loose. Gorgan used the children of the Starnes Exploration Party to capture the Constitution-class starship USS Enterprise and was using the ship to go to there. Tommy Starnes had relatives on Marcos XII. (TOS: "And the Children Shall Lead")

Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Marcos XII was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "The Search, Part II", "Call to Arms" as being located in this quadrant. This star chart was also seen in several Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes set in the 24th century, from the year 2364 to 2370. These were: TNG: "Conspiracy", "The Measure Of A Man", "The Emissary", "The Mind's Eye", "The Game" and DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians".
