The following is a list of unnamed moons in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.

Contents

892-IV moons

892-IV and two moons

The planet 892-IV was observed to have two moon-like objects nearby. (TOS-R: "Bread and Circuses")

These bodies could only be seen in the remastered version of the episode.


Andevian II moons

Andevian II had at least four moons. In 2369, Lwaxana Troi had a holo-program of dawn on the fourth moon. She had reserved with Quark a suite for her and Odo where they would experience dawn on this moon while sharing a picnic. (DS9: "The Forsaken")

These moons were only mentioned in dialogue.

Archer IV moons

Two moons in the Archer IV sky

Archer IV was observed to have at least two moons. (ENT: "Strange New World")

Argeth's moons

Argeth had two moons. (DIS: "Scavengers")

Argolis Cluster moon

A moon in the Argolis Cluster

In 2368, the USS Enterprise-D conducted a survey of the Argolis Cluster's star systems as a possible prelude to Federation colonization. During the survey, it discovered a crashed Borg scout ship on the moon of the fourth planet of one of the six star systems in the Argolis Cluster with one surviving drone, who would later be known as Hugh. (TNG: "I Borg")

Andorian system moons

In the Andorian system, the large gas giant like body near Andoria had at least one other body associated with it. (ENT: "The Aenar")

One of the Andorian moons had a Preservers' obelisk. Michael Burnham saw this world during a 2256 demonstration of the experimental spore drive. (DIS: "Context Is for Kings")

Arkonian planet's moons

Arkonian gas giant and three of its moons

An unnamed gas giant annexed by the Arkonians had 62 moons, some of which were partially habitable. (ENT: "Dawn")

To portray the progressively hot surface of one of these moons, the set was made very bright but not hot. "It's a big room but they were only lighting a specific spot," explained Tucker actor Connor Trinneer. (Star Trek Monthly issue 110, p. 20)

Azati Prime system moons

The system containing the planet Azati Prime had several lunar outposts and at least two moons. The planet was observed to have one moon-like object nearby.

Furthermore, the planetoid further out in the system also had a moon, which contained a monitoring station manned by three Xindi. (ENT: "Azati Prime")

Given the way the moon was brought up without explanation very abruptly and its surface had a similar texture as the planetoid Enterprise had been shown orbiting earlier, a Homeric nod might be suspected, the writers mistakenly referring to the same body both as a planetoid and later as a moon.

Badlands gas giant moon

This moon orbited a gas giant in the Badlands.

In 2371, Major Kira Nerys and Odo landed on this moon to search for a crash landed Peregrine-class courier ship. (DS9: "Heart of Stone")

According to Startrek.com, this moon was classified as M-class.


Bajor moons

Aside from Derna and Jeraddo, Bajor had at least three more moons. (DS9: "The Nagus", "Progress")

Bajor VII third moon

In 2370, a shuttlepod was lost somewhere in the vicinity of this moon of Bajor VII. (DS9: "Whispers")

This moon was only mentioned in dialogue.

Bajor VIII second moon

The second moon of Bajor VIII

In 2369, Bajoran terrorist Tahna Los, aboard the runabout USS Yangtzee Kiang, rendezvoused with Lursa and B'Etor's Bird-of-Prey near the lower moon of Bajor VIII to receive a quantity of bilitrium explosive. The USS Ganges, monitoring the exchange from behind the second moon, attempted to intercept him, but Tahna threatened to detonate the bomb in low orbit and wipe out the colonies on the surface of Bajor VIII. The Ganges was forced to allow him to head towards the Bajoran wormhole. (DS9: "Past Prologue")

This moon was orbiting Deinonychus VII. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas")

Delos system moon

A moon and the planet Ornara

This moon was part of the Delos system and orbited the planet Ornara. (TNG: "Symbiosis")

Draygo IV moons

Draygo IV had two moons. The reference to these moons came from a planetary file accessed by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D in 2370. (TNG: "Homeward")

These moons were only mentioned in writing.

Eden moons

The planet identified as Eden by doctor Sevrin appeared to have at least two close companions. (TOS: "The Way to Eden")

Golana was depicted as having two moons. (DS9: "Time's Orphan")

The moons were not seen in the outdoor scenes in the episode, but rather in three different pictures of the planet created by Molly.

Moons of Grazer

In the 23rd century, Ash Tyler's mother intended to visit the moons of Grazer for her first vacation in twelve years. However, on the way she was killed by a rogue comet. (DIS: "Lethe")

Haven's moon

A moon of Haven

Haven had at least one moon. (TNG: "Haven")

Hima's moons

Near the planet Hima, at least four close companions, possibly moons, could be seen. (DIS: "That Hope Is You, Part 1")

Holberg 917G companions

Near the planet Holberg 917G in the Omega system, at least two close companions, possibly moons, could be seen. (TOS: "Requiem for Methuselah")

In the original version of the episode, Flint's home was depicted by a re-used matte painting of a Kalar castle on Rigel VII from "The Cage". According to Star Trek Maps (p. 28, chart D), Holberg 917G was the seventh planet in the system, and had once supported a neanderthaloid population similar to the Kalar. The single moon of the planet seen in the original version of the episode was named Tanisse.

Holodeck planet's moons

Moons in orbit of a ringed planet

In 2365, Wesley Crusher took Salia on a tour of the Milky Way Galaxy via the holodeck, showing the many places he had visited. This ringed planet was one of the locations seen in that tour. It was orbited by at least two moons. (TNG: "The Dauphin")

Jupiter moons

The planet Jupiter had many moons, including Io and Ganymede.

After The Doctor transferred himself from the Delta Quadrant to Jupiter Station to treat Doctor Lewis Zimmerman for an ailment, the ungrateful Dr. Zimmerman congratulated him and recommended that during his visit he tour "Jupiter's third moon," noting that he heard the lava flows on it were lovely during that particular time of year. (VOY: "Life Line")

Zimmerman's statement is somewhat unclear. He may have been referring to Ganymede, the third Galilean moon, rather than Amalthea, Jupiter's actual third moon, although Io (Jupiter's fifth moon) is the only (currently known) moon of Jupiter to display active volcanism. It's possible his statement was not meant to convey any actual information.

The planet K'Tuevon Prime had at least one moon. (LD: "Veritas")

Kwejian's moon

Kwejian had a single moon.

Following the Burn in circa 3069, damage to subspace caused the moon's orbit to shift, disrupting Kwejian's tides and unleashing swarms of sea locusts on the planet's harvest. (DIS: "The Sanctuary")

Loresworld moons

These two moons were the natural satellites of Loresworld. (TNG: "Descent")

Lya Station Alpha planet's moon

Lya Station Alpha planet's moon

This moon orbited the Lya Station Alpha planet. It was located in the Alpha Quadrant. (TNG: "Ensign Ro")

This moon's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of Lya Station Alpha as seen in the star chart appearing in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 47) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Lya Station Alpha was located in the Lya system.


Mab-Bu VI moon

This moon orbited the gas giant Mab-Bu VI. It was located in the same sector as Starbase 12, in the Alpha Quadrant. The moon could only barely be considered class M and was constantly swept by ionic cyclones and electromagnetic storms. The ground cover was all non-porous rock which made survival for a long time on the moon very unlikely.

During the 19th century, hundreds of convicted criminals from Ux-Mal were imprisoned on the moon, their consciousnesses detached from their physical bodies and set adrift in the moon's constant storms.

In 2167, the criminals attempted to escape aboard the Federation starship USS Essex. However, the starship was unable to escape the electromagnetic storms.

The criminals tried to escape again in 2368, when the USS Enterprise-D arrived to investigate the distress call from the Essex. They inhabited the bodies of Data, Deanna Troi, and Miles O'Brien, claiming to be the disembodied minds of Essex crewmembers. They took the ship under their control and ordered to assume a polar orbit of the southern polar region, where the other members of their species were located. Their true identities were uncovered and the criminals were expelled before they could bring aboard the rest of their number. (TNG: "Power Play")

Matalas Prime moons

Matalas Prime had several ringed moons. (ENT: "Dawn")

Maxia Zeta IV

Maxia Zeta IV was known to have at least two moons. In 2355, the Battle of Maxia began when a Ferengi ship attacked the USS Stargazer from one of the moons. (TNG: "The Battle" display graphic)

Mixtus III moons

Mixtus III and its seven moons

Mixtus III had seven moons, at least one of which (the fifth) was inhabited by the Mixtus inhabitants.

In 2380, the fifth moon entered a decaying orbit, threatening to collide with the planet and destroy its population. The inhabitants requested aid from the United Federation of Planets, who sent the USS Vancouver and the USS Cerritos to safely demolish the moon. Despite some pushback from communities that venerated, inhabited, or otherwise relied on the moon's continued existence, eventually a compromise was reached and the moon was destroyed, becoming a new ring system around Mixtus III. (LD: "Cupid's Errant Arrow")

Nibia's moons

In 2285, during his mission of vengeance against James T. Kirk, Khan Noonien Singh swore that he would chase Kirk "'round the moons of Nibia and 'round the Antares maelstrom and 'round perdition's flames" before giving up. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In 2380, Ensign Beckett Mariner, while talking in her sleep, mumbled "Buried alive... marooned for eternity... moons of Nibia." (LD: "Envoys")

These moons were only mentioned in dialogue.
According to the 2015 Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar, one of the moons of Nibia was a small, cratered world fortified by multiple large bases. Multiple Federation Saber-class starships once waged an assault upon the moons of Nibia in the 24th century.

Nimbus III moons

During the search for the missing mining shuttle Nenebek in 2367, these moons were not searched by the salenite miners. (TNG: "Final Mission")

These moons were only mentioned in dialogue.

Pernaia Prime moon

An outpost on Pernaia Prime's moon

Pernaia Prime had a single frozen but life-supporting moon. It was about one hundred light years from Earth. In 2152, the moon supported a settlement. (ENT: "The Seventh")

In the final draft script of "The Seventh", this moon was described as "a small, irregularly-shaped moon with a dense atmosphere."

Quark's moon

In an alternate timeline, after the Federation relinquished control of Deep Space 9 to the Klingon Empire, Quark bought this moon. His brother Rom maintained the facilities on the moon, keeping it from "falling out of orbit". (DS9: "The Visitor")

This moon was only mentioned in dialogue.

Quatal Prime's fourth moon

This moon was one of at least four moons orbiting the planet Quatal Prime.

In 2373, as the USS Defiant approached the moon's primary, its senors detected two Maquis raiders near this moon. A running battle occurred between the Federation starship and the Maquis ships from this moon to the planet. (DS9: "For the Uniform")

This moon was only mentioned in dialogue.

Rakal's moons

Rakal had at least four moons.

In 2372, the fourth moon was home to a subterranean Cardassian military base. It was too well fortified against an attack by a Klingon bird-of-prey; however, a Vor'cha-class attack cruiser could cause significant damage to the base. (DS9: "Return to Grace")

These moons were only mentioned in dialogue.

Rana IV moons

Planet Rana IV had three moons.

In 2366, William Riker speculated that the Delta Rana warship had been hiding from the sensors of the USS Enterprise-D by "riding" a Lagrange point behind the furthest moon. (TNG: "The Survivors")

Rigel VII moon

Rigel VII sky

In the sky of Rigel VII, two bodies could be seen. The song "Moon over Rigel VII" seemed to imply that at least one of them was a moon. The other body, more distant than the moon, was another planet in the Rigel System. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part II"; Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Ringed moon

A ringed moon

This moon had a ring system and was visible in the sky from the monastery at P'Jem on a planet visited by Enterprise NX-01 in June of 2151. (ENT: "The Andorian Incident")

Risa moons

Risa was known to have at least two moons. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

A deleted scene from "Fallen Hero" established that there were three.

Romulus or Remus moon(s)

Either Romulus or Remus seems to have had at least one moon.

The map of the Romulan system seen in Star Trek Nemesis does not depict moons around any of its four planets. However, TNG: "The Defector" has a scene showing two bodies in the Romulan sky, one of which might be Remus, which would make the other a moon of either Romulus or Remus. Alternatively, both might be moons. ENT: "The Aenar" also shows an object close to Romulus, the texture of which doesn't seem to correspond with Remus. The final draft script of "The Aenar" identified it as a Romulan moon. Note that despite the perspective, this body could be quite small.

Saturn moons

Orbit of several moons of Saturn

Apart from Mimas and Titan, Saturn had several other moons, as evidenced by a display graphic of their orbits. (TNG: "The First Duty")

Small barren moon

In 2371, Odo contacted his Cardassian informant on this small moon. (DS9: "Improbable Cause")

In 2375, Odo wanted to meet one of his Cardassian informants, Gul Russol on this small moon. Instead, he found the defecting Weyoun 6. (DS9: "Treachery, Faith and the Great River")

Stock footage of the same moon was used in DS9: "Treachery, Faith and the Great River" to show Gul Russol's moon. It is possible that both moons represent the same moon and that Gul Russol is indeed Odo's informant.

Soukara moons

Soukara had at least two moons. (DS9: "Change of Heart")


Starbase 133 planet moon

The moon in orbit of Starbase 133's planet

This moon orbited the planet associated with Starbase 133. (TNG: "Remember Me")

Stella's moon

This sole moon of Talos V was depicted on an illustration of the Talos system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part I"; PIC: "Maps and Legends")

The location of Talos system in the Alpha Quadrant was labeled on a star chart seen in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends".


Tandaran moon

A moon in Tandaran space

A moon in Tandaran space was the location of Detention Complex 26 in the 2150s. The Niburon colonies were nearby, outside the border of Tandaran space.

Around 2151, a revolt led by Captain Jonathan Archer allowed all eighty-nine Suliban prisoners at the complex to escape. (ENT: "Detained")

The Tandaran moon was described, in the final draft script of "Detained", as being twenty hours' travel time from the edge of Tandaran space.
Visually, the Tandaran moon was a reuse of a planet from ENT: "Fight or Flight".

Tarsas III moon

A moon around Tarsas III

This Luna-like moon was the sole natural satellite of the planet Tarsas III. (TNG: "11001001")
