The Mutara Nebula.

The Mutara Nebula was an interstellar dust cloud located in the Mutara sector. (TOS movie: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

History and makeup[]

Known space map showing Mutara in 2378.

In the Kelvin timeline, 2263.

The nebula contains high levels of static discharge and comprises largely of ionized gases. The combined effect of this makes a starship's sensors highly unreliable and shields inoperable when inside.

In the year 2285, it was the site of the horrific Battle of the Mutara Nebula. The battle ended when Khan Noonien Singh detonated the experimental Genesis Device inside the nebula, causing matter within it to re-form into the Genesis Planet. (TOS movie: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; WizKids module: Attack Wing)

The nebula classification, Mutara class, was named after this nebula, and its properties were used as the model for this class. (VOY episode: "One")
