Olympus Mons is a mountain located on Mars and is widely regarded as the largest mountain in the entire Sol system. (ST reference: Star Charts)

Specifics[edit | edit source]

Olympus Mons was an extinct volcano 500 kilometers in diameter at its base, 24 kilometers tall, and ringed by a six-kilometer tall cliff. Sight-seeing tourists viewed the mountain in shuttlecraft. (Decipher RPG module: Worlds)

A honeycombed network of caverns exists beneath the mountain, accessible by diving underwater through quarries. Although one person had died during the cave trek, the trip was safe for experienced divers. (VOY novel: Mosaic)

The gravity there was 0.3 G, as the mountain was outside the affect of artificial gravity from colonies. (TOS novel: Captain's Peril)

Olympus Mons was visible from Benjamin Sisko's quarters in the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards when he was assigned there in the late 2360s. (DS9 - Mission Gamma novel: Lesser Evil)
