The USS Enterprise-D orbiting Mariposa (2365)

Class: M
Type: Planet
Location: Ficus sector
For the ship, please see SS Mariposa.

Mariposa was an inhabited planet in the Ficus sector. Classified as M class, this ringed world was settled by Humans from the SS Mariposa in the mid-22nd century. This planet was located half a light year from the Bringloid system and less than 90 light years from Earth. While attempting to land on the surface, the skin of the ship was breached, killing all but five of the colonists. As a result, the Mariposa colony was comprised of numerous clones.

The USS Enterprise-D evacuated the colonists from Bringloid V to Mariposa in 2365. (TNG: "Up The Long Ladder"; ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

Background information Edit

A deleted scene from this episode, available on the TNG Season 2 Blu-ray, referred to this planet as NB2323.

The planet model for Mariposa was first used for Gravesworld ("The Schizoid Man"), and would be used again for an unnamed planet. ("The Dauphin").

According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), Mariposa was listed as a member planet of the Federation in 2378.}}
