Uranus (Sol VII) is a gas giant, the seventh planet in the Sol system, located in Sector 001 in the space of the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant. (ST reference: Star Charts)

Specifics[]

Uranus orbited about 20 AU from Sol. (TTN novel: Fallen Gods) There were less than 12 AUs between Saturn and Uranus. (TOS novel: Seasons of Light and Darkness)

Its atmosphere was mainly hydrogen and helium, with methane providing its bluish color. It has a pronounced axial tilt and spins in a retrograde fashion. It had a ring system of 11 narrow bands. (Last Unicorn RPG module: A Cadet's Guide to Sector 001 Earth)

Like Jupiter and Boqu, it radiated more energy than it absorbed from Sol. (TAS novelization: The Eye of the Beholder)

Its five major moons were Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania and Oberon. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Starfleet Academy)

It was one of the first planets Earth children learned about. (TOS - Starfleet Academy novel: Cadet Kirk)

History[]

The 21st century Earth colony-ship Wanderer originally followed a ten-year comet-like trajectory between the orbits of Venus and Uranus. After its third loop, the colonists chose to depart the solar system by deploying solar sails and a ramscoop. Wanderer was tracked until it passed Sirius B, when all contact was lost. It remained missing until 2267. (TOS novel: The Galactic Whirlpool)

In March 2156, Jonathan Archer and Malcolm Reed used Shuttlepod 1 to assess Earth's ability to detect a starship running silent like a Romulan vessel might. During a span of 22 hours, they crossed the orbital paths of Neptune, Uranus, and the other planets, but were detected when they approached Earth. (ENT - The Romulan War novel: Beneath the Raptor's Wing)

In the 23rd century, a rude but popular drinking song titled "Down from Saturn and up Uranus" was sung by cadets at Starfleet Academy. (TOS novel: The Rift)

In the 2250s, cadet James T. Kirk piloted Spitfire past Jupiter and Uranus along the shuttle's route on the Sol system's plane of the ecliptic. (TOS - Starfleet Academy novel: Cadet Kirk)

In 2275, Kirk spotted Uranus as the USS Enterprise passed it, prior to going to warp en route to Vulcan. (TOS novel: Spock's World)
