Organia in relation to Vega, Jouret IV, Pollux IV and Rigel

Organia was an inhabited M class planet. This was the homeworld for the Organians, a non-corporeal species. This planet was near the Federation-Klingon border, a buffer zone between these two great powers in the Alpha Quadrant.

In 2267, Organia was the only class M planet located in the disputed region of space between the Federation and Klingon Empire. Due to its strategic location, Organia became the focal point of the First Federation-Klingon War, which eventually led to its invasion by the Klingons, led by Commander-cum-Governor Kor. (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")

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

The starship GS 12, under the command of Captain H. Ellison, visited Organia on the way to Deep Space 9, where they arrived on stardate 47557.1. (DS9: "Whispers", display graphic)

In 2372, Worf told Kor that Kor's confrontation with James T. Kirk on Organia was one of many stories about him he had heard since he was a child. (DS9: "The Sword of Kahless")

Organia appeared in the starchart Data and Picard were studying in Stellar Cartography in 2371. (Star Trek Generations, display graphic)

The location of Organia was depicted on a star chart in astrometrics on USS Voyager in 2376. (VOY: "Child's Play", display graphic)


For the 2007 remastered version of "Errand of Mercy", the generic planet representing Organia – and used for other planets including Alfa 177, M-113, and Gothos – was replaced by a unique, digital model.

The star chart seen in "Generations" depicted the location of planets, stars, and star systems in the Alpha Quadrant. Based on the dimensions of the circles used to mark locations on the star chart seen in "Generations", this planet was located relatively near to the USS Enterprise-D.

"The Explored Galaxy"

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Organia 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. The 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".
