Vendikar, aka Eminiar III, was the inhabited third planet in the Eminiar system of the Alpha Quadrant. This planet was the colony of Eminiar VII, the principal planet of the star cluster NGC 321. (TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon")

Government

For over five hundred years, Vendikar was governed by a planetary government. This government was headed by the Vendikar High Council. There was a direct channel between this council and the High Council of Eminiar, which, by 2267, hadn't been used for centuries. (TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon")

History

Vendikar was established centuries before the 23rd century by the space faring Eminians.

These Eminians, later identified as Vendikans, would enter into an interplanetary war sometime during the 18th century. The conditions of this war were stipulated in a treaty signed by both worlds. This was a simulated war with casualties determined by computer projections, and the people willingly killing themselves in disintegration stations. Legitimate targets in the war included vessels orbiting the planet. The reneging of this treaty by either side could result in a real war.

In 2267, the USS Enterprise visited the planet Eminiar VII. During the visit, when his ship and crew were threatened with destruction, Captain James T. Kirk ended the war abruptly by destroying the computers. Ambassador Robert Fox began work with the two planets to establish a lasting peace. (TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon")

In 2328, this planet was home for the Vendikar Spaceport. (TNG-R: "Inheritance", okudagram)

This planet's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of its star system as seen in the star chart appearing in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
