Chart 14A: The Sol System. The location of Neptune

In 1996, the position and orbital path of Neptune in the Sol system were depicted on a poster in the office where Rain Robinson worked, at the Griffith Observatory. (VOY: "Future's End")

In 2267, the position and orbital path of Neptune was illustrated on Chart 14A: The Sol System. The chart was filed in the USS Enterprise library computer. It was scanned by the probe Nomad in Auxiliary Control. (TOS: "The Changeling", production art)

History Edit

At warp 4.5, it would take six minutes to travel from Earth to Neptune and back. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

According to Arex, the cosmic cloud encountered by the USS Enterprise in 2269 was twice the diameters of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in size. (TAS: "One of Our Planets Is Missing")

Background information Edit

Neptune was named after the Roman god of water.

The painting of Neptune and Triton was created by Rick Sternbach and lent to the production. It was originally published by Astronomy Magazine and The Planetary Society. [1]

According to Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I"), Neptune was a charter member of the United Federation of Planets in 2161.

Apocrypha Edit

In 1975, the Mego toy company produced a reptilian action figure doll called a "Neptunian," although such a creature never appeared at any time during the Star Trek franchise. Mego may have intended to create a Skorr or Aquan action doll, but it looks nothing like the animated species. [2]
