Midos V was the inhabited fifth planet of its star system. This planet rich in abundant raw materials was the location of a small Earth colony and was one of the scheduled stops of the USS Enterprise in 2266.
That same year, Roger Korby enlisted the Kirk android to arrange him transportation off Exo III to a nearby planet colony with proper raw materials to begin producing androids. Korby noted that there were several good possibilities among the USS Enterprise's next stops without diverting from the ship's route. He didn't want to arouse suspicions. In response, the android Kirk chose Midos V, noting that it was "an excellent choice" for Korby's needs. (TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?")
