This doesn't come from any Trek sources and can be found at the wikipedia link at the bottom of the page:

...and is named after the Roman goddess of love in Earth (Roman) mythology. Orbiting Sol at a distance of 0.72 astronomical units and having a dense carbon dioxide atmosphere creating a pressure of 95 bars on its surface, Venus suffers from a runaway greenhouse effect resulting in temperatures of up to 763 Kelvin. In addition, the Venusian atmosphere contains high concentrations of sulfuric acid.

I also removed the planet sidebar, there was no valuable information to place in it, and the Class N reference is not canon. --Alan 03:08, 1 August 2007 (UTC)


Venus is considered a Class N Planet. {{incite}}

I suspect this comes from the Star Maps or something. If so, it would be better placed at the bottom in the Background section. --Alan del Beccio 03:30, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

Don't they mention Venus in a discussion about "demon class" planets in an episode of Voyager? 08:05, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

I tink they did, but it was more to the effect that the Demon planets make Venus look good or something. – Alexlyoko13 20:29, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

Planetary Data Edit

This terrestrial planet was considered a sister planet to Earth for centuries, as it had a similar size and density. Yet, this lifeless planet had a dense atmosphere with clouds of carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid, that were toxic to most lifeforms. In the 24th century, this planet was selected for terraforming, with the hopes that one day it would truly be like its sister. (VOY: "Future's End", poster; DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

Published in 1990, The Solar System was a reference poster, with a description of the Sol system's origins, planetary data on its nine planets, and brief descriptive comments on the minor bodies, for students and astronomers. The poster included a large illustration of the system that depicted the orbit of Venus. This poster was displayed on a wall in the office where Rain Robinson worked, at the Griffith Observatory. (VOY: "Future's End") The poster was also featured on the wall of the classroom on Deep Space 9 in 2370. (DS9: "Cardassians")

The poster in question was available from 1990 to 2006. In 2006, Pluto was demoted. A year later, a new version of the poster appeared. Some on this site feel that data from this updated poster is not valid as it didn't appear in the show. The original poster is out-of-stock and the data that was present on it can't be verified at this time. It was a mistake of mine to do what some felt was inappropriate, so I am removing the offending portions. Sorry.:(Throwback (talk) 14:35, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
