Cenotaph was a planet located in the Eta Eridani sector block in the Lotora star group. For millions of years it was a Gorn cemetery world.

History[edit | edit source]

500 million years ago, Gorn placed a series of stone marker spheres in orbit of the planet. Pictographs on the spheres celebrated Gorn's honored dead and warned against trespassing.

In 2270, University of Colorado archeologist Holm Baynan visited Cenotaph to steal some of the planet's artifacts. He then broadcast a fake distress call to ensure his departure he would be defended by a Federation starship. The USS Enterprise retrieved Banyan, then found themselves confronted by a Gorn vessel commanded by Captain S'alath. To restore the honor of their dead, which Baynan had defiled, Kirk met with S'alath on Cenotaph and set the Galileo II on fire with his phaser — a Viking funeral ceremony. The confrontation ended with a handshake. (TOS - Unlimited comic: "Dying of the Light")

Cenotaph was colonized by the Gorn and became a vassal state of the Klingon Empire after the conquest of the Gorn Hegemony in 2403. (STO novel: The Needs of the Many)

In 2409, Cenotaph was among the worlds of the former Gorn Hegemony where parts of the population rebelled openly against the Klingons. The KDF dispatched an assault squad to suppress the uprising. Their chance at succeeding was in excess of fifty percent. (STO mission: "Suppress Gorn Uprising on Cenotaph")
