Organia was an inhabited M class planet near the Federation-Klingon border and the homeworld for the Organians, a non-corporeal species.

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 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)

Background information

In its original appearance Organia was represented with the same generic planet model that was used to depict other planets including Alfa 177, M-113, and Gothos. In the 2007 remastered version of "Errand of Mercy", Organia was represented by a unique, digital planet model.

In the "The Explored Galaxy" star chart, Organia was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pages 54, 57, 64, "United Federation of Planets III"), Organia was located in the Organia system. In 2378, there was a quarantine on the planet. The Organia system was located in or near Klingon space. The star Organia was a G-class star with a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 the brightness of Sol. This system was in proximity to the disputed border of the UFP (2152-2267).
