Background information

Neptune was named after the Roman god of water. The Earth Starfleet Neptune-class starships might have been named after this planet.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), Neptune was a charter member of the United Federation of Planets in 2161.


In 1975, the Mego toy company produced a reptilian action figure doll called a "Neptunian," although such a creature never appeared at any time during the Star Trek franchise. Mego may have intended to create a Skorr or Aquan action doll, but it looks nothing like the animated species. [2]
