The Maxia Zeta star system

The Maxia Zeta system was an uninhabited planetary system. The primary was named Maxia Zeta. The system consisted of a primary and twelve planets. The habitable zone of the star's planetary system was within the orbits of the planets Maxia Zeta III and Maxia Zeta IV. Maxia Zeta had several moons.

On stardate 40217.3, in 2355, the USS Stargazer was on a routine survey mission to scan the planets in this system. Traveling at warp through the system, the Stargazer was ambushed by a Ferengi ship that was launched from one of the moons of Maxia Zeta IV. (TNG: "The Battle" display graphic) The conflict, known later as the Battle of Maxia, became legendary among the students at Starfleet Academy for the tactic used by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the defense of his ship and crew. (TNG: "The Battle")

Maxia Zeta appeared in the starchart Data and Picard were studying in stellar cartography in 2371. (Star Trek Generations, display graphic)

The map of the system depicted the orbital paths of only seven planets. This map would be modified and would later appear in "Datalore", "Conspiracy", and "The Ensigns of Command".
