Multiple realities

The Treaty of Organia, also known as the Organian Peace Treaty, was an agreement enforced by the powerful noncorporeal beings of Organia upon the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, ending the Federation-Klingon War in 2267. (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")

According to the terms of the treaty, each side could lay claim to a disputed planet inside the Neutral Zone between the two powers, and was given the opportunity to demonstrate its ability to develop that planet most efficiently. Also, each side was granted the right to demand use of the other's shore leave facilities along the border. (TOS: "The Trouble with Tribbles")

In the first draft script of TAS: "The Time Trap" (dated 26 August 1973), the Delta Triangle region was described as a "disputed sector", and that "exclusive exploration rights are still being contested by the Klingons under the Organian Peace Treaty."

The Treaty of Organia was eventually superseded by the Khitomer Accords of 2293, which bore out the Organians' prediction that the Klingons and the Federation would one day become friends. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In the alternate reality, this treaty was in existence by February 2259. On the eve of the founding of Sherman's Planet, there was a dispute about this treaty. (Star Trek Into Darkness, production art)

Background information Edit

The actions of "A Private Little War" were said to break "the treaty" and therefore might trigger war between the Federation and the Klingons, but it was not explicitly said that this was the same treaty as the Organian one. If it was the same treaty, it would mean it did not allow indigenous native populations to be disturbed, except under the auspices of pure scientific exploration and research, and the Klingons would have violated it by giving flintlock rifles to the primitive inhabitants of the planet Neural.

Information on this treaty in the alternate reality appeared in a graphic seen in the office of Admiral Alexander Marcus, although Organian was spelled as "Orgainian". [1]


According to the novel The Klingon Gambit, by Robert E. Vardeman, the Treaty of Organia covered a seven-hundred-and-fifty parsec zone. The novel How Much for Just the Planet? sums up the Organian Treaty as "Don't get grabby, or you'll get your fingers burned."

According to the novel The Sorrows of Empire, a version of the Treaty of Organia was signed between the Klingons and the Terran Empire in the mirror universe.
