High orbit, also known as maximum orbit or extended orbit, was the high altitude orbit of an object above a planetary body, entirely above that of a geosynchronous orbit, or the orbital period exceeding the length of a day. For Earth, high orbit altitude was anything greater than 35,786 kilometers.
In anticipation of the blast from the detonation of antimatter used to kill the dikironium cloud creature on Tycho IV, the USS Enterprise moved out to maximum orbit, holding at a range of 30,000 kilometers. (TOS: "Obsession")
