- Although Jupiter itself is uninhabited, it and its moons are Federation territory.
- Jupiter is the largest planet in the Sol system. Like Saturn, it is a class J gas giant. Jupiter's four largest moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, are called the "Galilean Satellites" after their discoverer, Galileo Galilei.

Jovian system Edit
The Jovian system consisted of the primary Jupiter and its many moons. This system was the largest of the planetary systems, and was divided into three regions: the inner system, the intermediate system, and the outer system. The four great moons of this system - Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, and Io - were located in the inner system.
Published in 1990, The Solar System was a reference poster, with a description of the Sol system's origins, planetary data on its nine planets, and brief descriptive comments on the minor bodies, for students and astronomers. The poster included a large illustration of the system that depicted the orbit of Jupiter. Some of the major natural satellites were shown in orbit above this planet. This poster was displayed on a wall in the office where Rain Robinson worked, at the Griffith Observatory. (VOY: "Future's End") The poster was also displayed on the wall of the classroom on Deep Space 9 in 2370. (DS9: "Cardassians")
The poster in question was available from 1990 to 2006. In 2006, Pluto was demoted. A year later, a new version of the poster appeared. Some on this site feel that data from this updated poster is not valid as it didn't appear in the show. The original poster is out-of-stock and the data that was present on it can't be verified at this time. It was a mistake of mine to do what some felt was inappropriate, so I am removing the offending portions. Sorry.:(Throwback (talk) 15:47, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
