Minos was a forested class M planet in the Alpha Quadrant, which once was home to a humanoid culture called the Minosians. By the 24th century the Minosian population had been wiped out. (TNG roleplay module: Planetary Adventures)

In 2364 the USS Drake visited the planet and was destroyed by an Echo Papa 607 weapons system, which was still active following its creator's demise. A short time later the USS Enterprise-D was sent to investigate the Drake's disappearance and was also attacked, but ultimately defeated the Echo Papa system.

The Echo Papa system operated both on the surface of the planet and in space; While both Captain Jean-Luc Picard and first officer William T. Riker were on the planet's surface, Geordi La Forge was left in command; although he was inexperienced, La Forge refused to yield command to then Chief Engineer Charles H. Logan. (TNG episode: "The Arsenal of Freedom")

In 2379 La Forge reflected on his experiences at Minos when Riker offered him the first officer position on the USS Titan. (TNG novel: A Time for War, A Time for Peace)

Performer:

In Greek mythology, Minos was the king of Crete and father of Ariadne. Minos was featured in the story of "Daedalus and Icarus".

King Minos comissioned Daedalus to construct the Labyrinth to house the monstrous Minotaur. Minos then cast Daedalus and his son Icarus into the Labyrinth.

Daedalus managed to escape and flee Crete. King Minos pursued Daedalus and soon came to the court of Cocalus where Daedalus was hiding. Minos offered a reward to whoever could lead a thread through a spiral seashell - a task only Daedalus could solve.

When Minos saw that someone had solved the puzzle, he demanded that Cocalus surrender Daedalus. However Daedalus persuaded Minos to relax and take a bath before taking him away to be killed. Minos agreed, and was consequently murdered by Daedalus - who used his knowledge of the plumbing system to fill Minos' bath with boiling water.
