Background information

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.

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 73), Neptune orbited the sun at an average distance of thirty au.


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]
