Late 2007: The first outpost on Mars, which grew to become Utopia Planitia

Utopia Planitia (Latin: "Nowhere Plain") is the Martian region where the Viking 2 lander touched down and began exploring on 3 September 1976. It is in the Casius quadrangle and the Cebrenia quadrangle of Mars.

Located at the antipode of Argyre Planitia, Utopia Planitia is the site of the largest Trekkie community above LEO,[1] centered around the largest industrial center in Fenspace, the absolutely massive Utopia Planitia Shipyard. The shipyards and the industry connected to them requires large amounts of refined metal and other materials, and along with the Mars Terraforming Project are responsible for the growth of Port Phobos, which exists mainly to supply them.

Utopia Planitia is also home to Starfleet Academy, the Trekkies' post-secondary educational institution.
