Makus III was a planet located somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants, the third planet in orbit of the Makus star system in Federation space. The native population were known as Makusians. (DTI novel: Forgotten History)
History and specifics
By the 2260s decade, Makus III was a Federation port of call and visited by Starfleet. In the year 2267, the starship USS Enterprise delivered medical supplies to the planet, for transfer to the New Paris colonies following a plague outbreak. After leaving the planet, the Enterprise began an exploratory mission of Sector 061. (TOS episode: "The Galileo Seven"; TOS - Shinsei Shinsei comic: "Anything But Alone")
At some point prior to 2367, Guinan acquired an energy-beam rifle on the planet. She later fired the weapon aboard the USS Enterprise-D to defuse the air of conspiracy and suspicion that surrounded the Enterprise crew while they were trapped in Tyken's Rift and suffering from REM sleep deprivation.
