The Mutara sector, also known as the Genesis sector, was a region of space under the control of the Federation. The sector was of considerable distance from the Delphic Expanse and closely bordered Klingon space.


It was in 2267 that the USS Enterprise found the drifting SS Botany Bay in the Mutara sector. Captain James T. Kirk would later exile Khan Noonien Singh and his augment followers to the planet Ceti Alpha V which was also located in the sector. (TOS episode: "Space Seed")

This sector would also be the location of the destruction of the same USS Enterprise during a Klingon incursion in 2285. (TOS novel: The Better Man; TNG video game: Echoes from the Past; TOS movies: The Wrath of Khan, The Search for Spock; ENT episode: "Twilight"; ST reference: Star Charts)

In 2360, the USS Okinawa was to go on maneuvers in the Mutara sector following a refit. (ST - The Lost Era novel: Catalyst of Sorrows)

In 2370, a Cardassian fleet was deployed to the Mutara sector when war between the Klingons and Cardassians was brewing. (DS9 - Hearts and Minds comics: "Into the Abyss", "Masters of War")

Alternate timeline[]

In an alternate timeline where the Xindi destroyed Earth and most its colonies, the Mutara sector would be the region of space in which the last few humans took refuge. One convoy of refugee ships would be destroyed by the Xindi near the Mutara system; however, another led by the Enterprise (NX-01) would reach Ceti Alpha V where a colony of less than six thousand humans was established. (ENT episode: "Twilight")
