Mercury (Sol I) was a planet, the first planet orbiting Sol in the Sol star system. A class F/class B geomorteus planet, Mercury orbits Sol on an 88-day cycle. A small, rocky body, the surface temperatures on the side facing the sun become quite high due to the close location to the central star. The proximity to Sol is so close as to preclude any semblance of a lifeform-supporting planetary atmosphere. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Planets of the UFP)

HistoryEdit

When performing a slingshot maneuver around the sun, the crew of the USS Enterprise turned away from the sun after passing Mercury. (TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")

After an attack by the Totality on warp drive vessels, Starfleet Command relocated to Mercury where they established a provisional command at the Vostok Academy. (TOS novel: Captain's Glory)
