Rudimon is a planet located in or near the Taurus Reach in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrant. It is the homeworld of the warp-capable Rudimonian civilization and is within range of Federation Starbase 47.
History[edit | edit source]
A fragile peace was established in 2268, and Rudimonians asked the Federation to help with rebuilding efforts. The starship USS Enterprise orbited Rudimon and beamed a large fraction of its crew to the planet's largest city. However, efforts were derailed when an old nuclear reactor exploded underground, killing 20 percent of the ship's crew and as well as many Rudimonians. With sickbay overwhelmed, the Enterprise was forced to retreat to Starbase 47. Further assistance from the Federation depended on Rudimon maintaining a peaceful status.
