General Order 7

A copy of General Order 7

Starfleet General Order 7 was a directive that forbade contact with the planet Talos IV. It was made part of Starfleet policy in 2254. The rationale for the order was top secret and could only be revealed to subordinate officers upon a certified direct order issued by a flag officer (see full text below).

In 2267, it was the only Starfleet regulation that carried the threat of capital punishment. (TOS episode: "The Menagerie")

By 2320, the Federation was considering doing away with this last death penalty. When confronted with the fact that Ambassador Spock was traveling there, Captain Hikaru Sulu tried to reason with Spock to wait a few months until the order had been lifted. (TOS novel: Burning Dreams)

By 2380, the death penalty for visiting Talos IV, as well as the classified nature of the Talosian species, had been lifted by Starfleet. Whether or not General Order 7 is otherwise still in effect, thus still restricting traffic to Talos, is unknown. (TNG novel: Q & A)
