FCO Outpost 47 was an installation operated by Starfleet's First Contact Office during the late 2260s and into the following decade. It was located on the single moon of planet Talin IV, hidden by hologram below a mountain, and served as a base for cultural observations of the Talin race.
In 2269, the outpost was believed threatened by a Talin space vessel armed with nuclear weapons. Lieutenant Commander Montgomery Scott was able to disable the trigger mechanisms of all six weapons using the USS Enterprise's tractor beams, averting any destruction. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)
