Map of treaty boundary quadrant 2 showing Makus.

Makus was a star with an associated star system located in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants, in treaty boundary quadrant 2, near the border of quadrant 1 and quadrant 0, in the general vicinity of Mu Leonis and the Drexler binary star.

History and specificsEdit

The star Makus was a yellow/white star, and the system's orbit was the location of 8 worlds, including the third planet Makus III, a habitable planet. (ST reference: Star Trek Maps; DTI novel: Forgotten History)

In 2270, during a conflict between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, the Makus system was occupied by the Klingons, who operated shipyards there. The Klingons used these shipyards to equip a B'rel-class bird-of-prey with the prototype of a new cloaking device. Seeing an opportunity to seize the cloak and use it to investigate the Klingon weapon platform in the Kathra system, Starfleet set up the command post Orpheus at the edge of the system, from which a task force of vessels led by the Constitution-class USS Enterprise were sent to acquire the bird-of-prey. Fighting their way to the shipyards, the Starfleet force successfully managed to disable and tow the bird-of-prey back to Orpheus via tractor beam. (ST video game: Legacy)
