History and specifics[edit | edit source]
In the year 2267, shortly after Ensign Pavel Chekov was promoted to junior navigator, the Federation starship USS Enterprise left Starbase 44 to survey the Mariotian sector. A few days into their mission, the ship picked up a radio signal distress call from Beta Mariotia, two light years from their position, and diverted to the system at warp six. (TOS comics: "No Compromise Part One", "No Compromise, Part II", "No Compromise, Part III")
- The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "beta" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Mariotia", of which Beta Mariotia would logically be indicated to be the second most prominent star or system.
