The name of Arex's homeworld originated in a non-canon catalog published by Lincoln Enterprises in 1974, which included biographies of Arex and M'Ress. The Edosians were described as a peaceful, long-lived species worshiping many gods. Though the Animated Series may suggest that the Edosians are Federation members, the Lincoln biography claims they are merely in "loose alliance." Despite the information from the biography not being canon, the name of the planet seems to have been accepted in canon, and StarTrek.com uses information from it.
