Apocrypha

Background information

This planet was only mentioned in dialogue.

This planet's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of its star system as seen in the star chart appearing in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends".

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 375), Tau Ceti Prime was the first planet in the Tau Ceti system.

Apocrypha

In The Autobiography of Kathryn Janeway (pp. 63-64), Admiral Janeway's death was described as occurring while piloting a test vehicle that could transition quickly from orbital to suborbital to underwater flight on Tau Ceti Prime because the planet was the closest approximation to Etaris IV, a planet in contention during the Cardassian Wars.
