Troy was an ancient city on Earth. Subject of the Odyssey and the Iliad, this city was long believed to be a fiction concocted by Homer. It wasn't until the 1870s, when Heinrich Schliemann discovered the ruins, that the city was proven fact. The city was found in the area then called the Ottoman Empire, and later Turkey. (TOS novel: Uhura's Song)

History Edit

Homer wrote about the Trojan War, including the tale of the Trojan horse, famously used to defeat Troy after a long siege. According to Homer, Cassandra, daughter of King Priam of Troy, watched as an apparent peace offering of a massive wooden horse was brought past the Scaean Gates into the city of Troy. Later, she saw Greek soldiers emerge from the horse, open the gates, burn the city and murder its people, including her father. (TNG novel: A Call to Darkness)
