Eminiar VII

Planets List
Universe : Prime Timeline
Name : Eminiar VII1

An inhabited planet located in the NGC 321 star cluster. Eminiar colonised the third planet in their system, Vendikar, some time prior to the mid 18th century. Vendikar eventually turned against Eminiar and a war broke out between the two in 1767. The primary means of fighting was the use of long range transporters to materialise fusion bombs over cities; the destruction was so great that both civilisations were threatened with total destruction. As a result, the two societies entered into an agreement to conduct the war via computers; attacks would be carried out mathematically and casualties registered. Those designated as casualties would them report to disintegration machines for disposal. This allowed the war to continue on an permanently sustainable basis.1

Eminiar was in an important strategic location with regards to the Federation, and in 2217 the USS Valiant was sent to make contact with the planet. Unfortunately an attack was calculated to have destroyed the ship in orbit, and the Eminians were able to overpower and eliminate the crew in response. The Eminians resisted all further outside contact as strongly as possible, but in 2267 the USS Enterprise was sent to force the issue by making contact over and above their wishes. Again an attack registered the ship as a casualty, but Captain Kirk was able to resist all efforts at immolating him and force a breakdown in the system governing the war. Federation Ambassador Fox offered his assistance in negotiating an end to the conflict.1
