This article is about planet Babel. You may be looking for Babel (episode).

Babel was a planetoid in the Wolf 424 star system which served as a neutral site for many diplomatic talks and other events between powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)

It was unnamed until 2154, when a conference between the United Earth, Confederacy of Vulcan, Andorian Empire, and United Planets of Tellar was held there, under the code name "Babel", a name derived from the biblical story. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)

Babel served as the home of a part of the Federation Council, as well as being the location of the Babel Station. (TOS novel: Vulcan!)

Outside Babel Station was an esplanade where a variety of commerce was conducted. Weapons were not allowed to be carried by visitors and delegates to Babel and Babel Station. (ST comic: "Alien Spotlight: Orions")

HistoryEdit

In the 18th century, Babel was host to the Ramatis Choral Debates. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)

The first Babel Interplanetary Conference was held in the year 2087. (ST reference: Spaceflight Chronology, TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

Circa 2264, a conference and diplomatic function was held there, and attended by the newly promoted Fleet Captain Christopher Pike, Tellarite Administrator Muso, Vulcan Undersecretary for Agricultural Affairs Sorak, and Spence, among others. Pike saved Muso from being killed by the Orion assassin Leata, only to later learn of Muso's criminal activities. After a battle within the station, Muso was eventually arrested by Babel Station security after ordering Pike's death and attempting to kidnap Leata. (ST comic: "Alien Spotlight: Orions")

A major conference was held on Babel in 2267 to consider the question of Coridan III's admission into the United Federation of Planets. Ambassador Sarek played a key role in overseeing this process. (TOS episode: "Journey to Babel"; TNG episode: "Sarek")

In 2268, the USS Enterprise sent a message for the Federation Council to Babel. (TOS novel: Vulcan!)

By the 2280s, the planetoid was used as a site for peace negotiations between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Ambassador Robert Fox was dispatched to the world in order to meet his Klingon counterpart Kalor so that a peace could be formed between the two powers. (TOS comic: "Who Is... Enigma?")

Kelvin timeline Edit

In 2263, a conference was held between numerous representatives of the Federation and the Romulan Empire. (TOS - Boldly Go comic: "Issue 7")

Alternate universesEdit

In one alternate timeline where Terra Prime halted the creation of the Coalition of Planets, Babel became the site of the creation of the Interstellar Coalition in 2161. Later, in 2264, it was the site for talks to consider Earth's admission into the Coalition. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
