The Orion embassy outpost was an embassy outpost on Qo'noS, operated by the Orions on land given to them by the Klingons sometime prior to 2257. It was built over the ruins of a shrine to the tyrant Molor, which was situated atop one of the vents leading to the planet's underground volcano system.
The outpost served as a center for black market and other unscrupulous activities for individuals of many species, including arms dealing, gambling, and prostitution. Tattooing was also available at the outpost.
The outpost was visited by Philippa Georgiou, Michael Burnham, Ash Tyler and Sylvia Tilly in 2257 during a mission to map the volcanic vents on Qo'noS. At that time, it had a cabaret and a food booth; which served, among other things, gormagander. (DIS: "Will You Take My Hand?")
In 2257, a USS Discovery team consisting of Michael Burnham, Sylvia Tilly, Ash Tyler, and Philippa Georgiou infiltrated the outpost, ostensibly to map the surface of Qo'noS in preparation for an attack. However, the real mission, known only to Georgiou, was to detonate a hydro bomb in the volcano system, so as to cause a phreatic eruption that would render Qo'noS uninhabitable.
