One holder of this title was [[Master|Captain]] [[R.M. Merik]]. Merik had arrived with his ship, the [[SS Beagle|SS ''Beagle'']] on this planet in [[2262]]. While many of his crew were subsequently put to death in the arena, Merik, now called Merikus, became First Citizen and also [[Lord of the Games]].

The title is roughly equivalent to the Roman Empire's title of "Princeps" or first citizen. This title was held by the ancient emperors of the Roman Empire on Earth. Because of 892-IV parallel development to Rome, it is likely that the First Citizen is the "emperor." Despite this, it is clear that true power can be held by others, as indicated by Merik's puppet status to [[Proconsul]] {{dis|Claudius Marcus|Proconsul}}. ({{TOS|Bread and Circuses}})
