Through the [[Guardian of Forever]] on the [[Time Planet]], a research team consisting of [[Captain]] [[James T. Kirk]], [[Commander]] [[Spock]], and [[Lieutenant]] [[Ted Erickson]] of [[Starfleet]], and historians [[Grey (historian)|Grey]] and [[Loom Aleek-Om]], visited the dawn of Orion civilization in [[2269]] ({{e|TAS|Yesteryear}}).
 
 
:''Though not stated explicitly, the lines "Orion, at the dawn of its civilization" and “in Orion’s past" suggest a reference to a planet's past, rather than that of a people or a system, hence the inclusion here.''
 
 
They visited the ancient and barbaric early [[Empire of Orion]] (also called the Orionic Empire), though no-one knew what the clothing of the era was and Starfleet uniform and [[23rd century]] [[Federation]] casual dress was expected to be conspicuous. Gold was the only currency. Kirk expected the trip to be fun and adventurous, and found it to be a whirlwind of colors, sights and sounds, as they explored the period for 2.5 days in local time. Their last visit was to a low-quality inn in a bazaar, near an auction of [[Orion slave girl]]s. ({{n1|TAS|Yesteryear}})
 
 
In [[2372]], [[Quark]], a [[Ferengi]] entrepreneur, attempted to smuggle [[kemocite]] to Orion on a side-trip between [[Deep Space 9]] and [[Earth]], though the enterprise failed due to sabotage. ({{e|DS9|Little Green Men}})

* the [[Orion emerald finch]] ({{rpg|Decipher RPG|Creatures}})
 
* the [[Orion fern tree]]. ({{n|TOS|Traitor Winds}})

Background

Prior to the revelation of Alnilam and Vondem as the Orion home specific to the Kelvin timeline, previous sources have developed the planets Rigel VII and Rigel VIII as the Orion homeworld, each also named "Orion". This is not necessarily a contradiction of the 23rd century reference to Vondem at Alnilam, as the older publications depict Orion's ancient origins including abandonment of some previous and adopted homeworlds. The reference book publication Star Charts had previously named the Pi-3 Orionis system as the apparently unrelated "Orion system", but later 24th century novel sources establish this is the familiar home of the Orion civilization in the primary universe. It is not clear if some occurrence of the Kelvin timeline changed this fact or if, in the prime version of reality that Vondem is one of the many other homeworlds the Orions were forced to settle during their long nomadic history.
