Arima was the twin planet of Mazda in the R-517 star system. It was a member of the Federation.
Arima and Mazda had joint gravitational fields. Four moons orbited both planets, with each planet appearing to have two moons at a given time.
Two related humanoid species developed on Arima: Ariman and Mazdan. Limited resources on Arima led to tribal struggles and eventually religious warfare. The Mazdans eventually colonized Mazda.
The Federation Council drafted a resolution permitting membership so long as a cease-fire was maintained. Starfleet was to keep a patrol ship in the sector.
