The surface of Mudd

This article is about the planet. For people named "Mudd," see Mudd (disambiguation).

Mudd (or The Robot Planet) was an uninhabited K class planet. This planet had a ring system. This was the homeworld of the Mudd androids. (TOS: "I, Mudd"; TAS: "Mudd's Passion")

Location Edit

The Explored Galaxy

The location of Mudd in "The Explored Galaxy" star chart

In 2293, the location of Mudd in the Milky Way Galaxy was labeled in a star chart that was in Captain James T. Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, okudagram)

History Edit

The planet was the last outpost of a now extinct species from the Andromeda Galaxy, whose homeworld had been destroyed by its star going supernova. In the 23rd century, the planet was inhabited only by the android workers who were sent there to build vast libraries, advanced medical research laboratories and engineering shops.

The planet was stumbled upon in 2267 by the fugitive Harcourt "Harry" Mudd in the previously uncharted star system. The android workers dubbed him "Lord Mudd the First" and held him against his will, as they needed someone to provide them with a purpose. In 2268, "Lord" Mudd sent the android Norman to hijack the Federation starship USS Enterprise in the hopes of trading the crew for his own freedom.

Mudd's plan was ultimately unsuccessful and Starfleet personnel were able to reprogram the androids to continue once again the project they had been sent to the planet to accomplish. In addition, the androids were left with custody of Harry Mudd, not as a sovereign ruler, but instead as a "first-class example of a Human failure", to be observed in order to avoid similar individuals in the future. (TOS: "I, Mudd")

Harry soon escaped the planet however by stealing a spaceship and left to find haven on Ilyra VI, where he fooled the innocent and friendly inhabitants into buying Starfleet Academy from him. (TAS: "Mudd's Passion")
