For the mirror universe counterpart, see Organia (mirror).

Organia was a class M planet, the fourth planet in the Organian system on the Federation-Klingon border. It was the homeworld of the Organians. After the Organians imposed a peace treaty between the Federation and Klingon Empire the planet fell into the Klingon Neutral Zone, near Outpost Delta 7. (ST references: The Worlds of the Federation, Star Charts; TOS episode: "Errand of Mercy"; TOS video game: Starfleet Academy: Strategic Command)


Explored Galaxy

Organia was noted on star charts of the galaxy's explored regions in the 23rd and 24th centuries, in an area of the projection also containing Kling, Ingraham B and Omega IV. (TOS movie: The Undiscovered Country, TNG episodes: "Conspiracy", "The Measure of a Man", "The Emissary", "The Mind's Eye", "The Game", DS9 episodes: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians")


In the 22nd century, the USS Daedalus visited Organia. The crew was surprised to find that the inhabitants, though appearing to be primitive, were not surprised by the Federation Starfleet crew. The crew had even landed a shuttlecraft in a town square. (ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years)

In 2267, just before war broke out between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, the USS Enterprise was ordered to secure Organia. En route the Enterprise was attacked by a Klingon scout vessel IKS Vortha (which they promptly destroyed) and before they arrived at Organia the Enterprise received a Code One alert informing them war had officially commenced.

The destruction of the Vortha prompted the Klingon High Council to send a fleet under command of Kor, son of Rynar to take Organia for the Empire and destroy the Enterprise. The Enterprise arrived at Organia shortly before the Klingons, but was forced to depart when the fleet did arrive, leaving Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock stranded on the planet.

While the Klingons established their rule over the planet Kirk and Spock donned disguises, and after being interrogated by the Klingons were allowed to go about their business — with Kirk in the guise of Baroner being appointed Governor Kor's liaison to the Organian people.

The Klingons’ peaceful conquest did not last long when Kirk and Spock decided to try and spark an Organian resistance by blowing up the Klingons’ ammunition depot. The Klingons discovered Kirk's true identity and took him into custody, but the Organian leader, Ayelborne, freed them. The two acts of apparent Organian terrorism prompted Kor to order two-hundred Organians be shot in punishment, and order more be periodically killed until the Starfleet spies turned themselves in.

War over Organia

Federation and Klingon forces face off over Organia

Horrified by the deaths Kirk decided to make a strike against Kor and attacked him in his base of operations on the planet. At the same time the Federation fleet arrived above the planet to face off against the Klingons. Appalled by the escalating violence the Organians, who were (unknown to both powers) in fact non-corporeal beings, decided to intervene and prevented the continuation of immediate hostilities by making it impossible for the Starfleet and Klingon forces to fight by making their weapons too hot to touch. At the same time Ayelborne simultaneously appeared before the Federation and Klingon leadership to impose a peace treaty on the two powers to prevent further violence. (TOS episode: "Errand of Mercy"; TOS - Klingons: Blood Will Tell comic: "Against Their Nature")

Unable to continue the fight under the new Organian Peace Treaty the two sides retreated their forces from the planet, which now fell within the Klingon Neutral Zone. (TOS episode: "Errand of Mercy"; TOS - Klingons: Blood Will Tell comic: "Against Their Nature"; TOS video game: Starfleet Academy: Strategic Command)

In 2269, the Klingons confined Organia with a thought-shield, thus allowing war to break out between the Federation and Klingons once again. After the Enterprise reached Organia and freed it, the Organians confined the Klingons to their homeworld for 1000 years. (TOS novel: Spock Must Die!)

Errand of curiosityEdit

In the 2280s, Starfleet dispatched a small starship to investigate the suspected disappearance of the Organians. Upon arriving at the world, the Starfleet captain found all traces of them gone, and was confronted by a Klingon picket ship. The Starfleet crew destroyed the hostile Klingon and reported the abandonment of Organia. (TOS video game: Starfleet Command: "Errand of Curiosity")

Historic legacyEdit

Worf had heard stories about Kor confronting Kirk on Organia throughout his life. (DS9 episode: "The Sword of Kahless")
