Zeta-Atez was a planet located in a binary star system within a sector containing the Gates of Scylla Confederation, located near the Federation-Klingon Neutral Zone in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrant. It was the homeworld of the interstellar Zeta-Atezian civilization.
History and specifics
In 2274, following a power transition in the planet's government, a fleet of Klingon starships amassed along the Klingon border near Zeta-Atez, eager to claim the planet for the Klingon Empire after the new imperator announced plans to secede. Since he was also scheduling a planet-wide gala for the world's 50th anniversary of Federation membership, mixed messages prompted Starfleet to send the starship USS Enterprise on a diplomatic mission to stabilize the region.
