A bold experiment in peaceful relations between the interstellar superpowers, Nimbus III was established in the late 2260's in neutral territory at the heart of the Triangle. The United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Star Empire were expected to station Ambassadors on the planet, but while the Federation and Klingons posted only washed up has-beens, the Romulans never bothered to send an Ambassador at all until 2286, just before the renegade Vulcan, Sybok, staged a coup. While weapons were forbidden, Sybok found that many of the settlers had fashioned makeshift firearms. It was only through the actions of the crew of the USS Enterprise-A that the situation was resolved.


Nimbus III is a barren ball of rock, useless for any worthwhile constructive purpose. It proved so for a diplomatic base as well.
