Pluto was a planet in the Sol system between Neptune and Cassius. It had a moon called Charon.

History

Pluto was first observed from Earth in 1930 AD by the American astronomer Percival Lowell. Considered the ninth planet (although in reality the Sol system had several more including Mondas), the planet remained the outer boundary of the solar system. In 2006, however, Earth's scientific community revised the definition of planet following the discovery of several Pluto-like bodies beyond Pluto's orbit. The result was Pluto was, for a time at least, no longer classified as a planet, at least by Earth reckoning. (Contemporary accounts)

As Pluto is referred to as a planet in The Sun Makers, presumably a reinstatement of its full planetary status occurred at some point.

It had a native population of crystalline creatures, which had a 30,000 year old civilization until they were wiped out by radiation in 2157. (NA: GodEngine). In the 22nd century it also hosted the Lowell Depot, which was attached to the Sol Transit System. (NA: Transit)

After the Earth's resources were exhausted, the humans, in dire need of help, made a deal with the Company to settle Mars. After that planet was depleted, the Usurians moved the humans to Pluto. To this end the planet was terraformed with an atmosphere, and a city which the Doctor found quite impressive, Megropolis One. Later five more Megropolis' were constructed. Each Megropolis was lighted by one of six artificial suns, in the form of fusion satellites. At the end the planet housed 300 million humans.

Megropolis One was the main administrative center, where the Collector administered the operation through human underlings from his palace. Other cities were Megropolis three, which housed miners, and Megropolis 4. All Megrapolis' had extensive industrial capacity.

As a side-effect of the perpetual day caused by the artificial suns, many inhabitants were afraid of the dark. The monetary unit was the Telmar.

Humans in the colony were ruthlessly exploited. They were drugged through the air with a substance called PCM, making them subservient. Furthermore they were taxed extensively, with tax evasion or simply being unable to pay the high fees being a grave crime. Criminal offences were curbed through screening with an extensive surveillance system, and caught criminals were deported to a detention center in Megropolis One, where they usually did not survive very long. A more severe form of punishment was execution by steamer, often public.

A more free society of outlaws existed in the undercity though, where PCM was not distributed and people were able to think more freely. They eventually, with the help of the doctor, managed to sabotage the PCM dispersion system in Megracity one, which lead to a succesful uprising against the company. Once the company retreated, declaring their branch to be no longer profitable, the humans intended to re-settle the Earth, which the doctor thought would have been regenerated. (DW: The Sun Makers)

Behind the scenes

At the time that The Sun Makers was produced in the late 1970s, Pluto was officially classified as the solar systems ninth planet. Its subsequent demotion in 2006 is one of the most controversial decisions in modern astronomical history, and is expected to be challenged in coming years. It is possible, therefore that in the future it may regain its planetary classification. Barring any on-screen reference it's also possible to conjecture that in the Whoniverse the demotion never occurred.

Pluto is a body in the Sol system. From 1930 to 2006, Pluto was considered the 9th planet in the solar system, at which point it was reclassified as a dwarf planet. Pluto's status among astronomers would shift in-between planet and dwarf planet several times in-between the 21st and 24th centuries. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor) The planet was named after the Roman god of the underworld. The planet is approximately a fifth of the size of Luna, and is comprised mainly of rock and ice. It has an eccentric orbit that brings it closer to the sun than the planet Neptune for a 20 year period during its revolution around the sun.

On Stardate 0/8508, an unknown disease that had an exceptionally high mortality rate spread through the research base stationed there and killed its 200 personnel leaving no survivors. The disease was later linked to a contaminated souvenir left behind by an Orion trader. This left tense relations between the Terran's and the Orion races. (TOS roleplay module: The Romulan War (FASA))

In 2152, T'Pol likened the Andorian settlement of Paan Mokar to the Klingons establishing a colony of their own on Pluto. (ENT episode: "Cease Fire")

The USS Galaxy spent some time in orbit around Pluto, and sent updates on the performance of her systems to the USS Enterprise-D - which was undergoing her shakedown cruises - during this time. (TNG reference: Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual)

In mid-2380 Pluto and its moons were absorbed by a Borg Cube. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor).

There is more information available on this subject at Pluto on the English-language Wikipedia.
The Dwarf Planet Pluto through an artist's conception.

Pluto is a small celestial object in the Solar System, and the second-largest known dwarf planet (after Eris) as well as the tenth-largest body observed directly orbiting the Sun. It was named after the Roman God of the Underworld. The Remote Scanning Outpost Democritus is on this Dwarf Planet. On November 3, 2552, the Monitoring Station detected Cortana's signal in Slipspace with Dr. Halsey's message to Lord Hood.[1] As of 2552 there are no human facilities on the dwarf-planet's surface, however several military and scientific stations orbit Pluto.[2]

History

Pluto was discovered in 1930, then thought to be the ninth and final planet of the Solar System. Its first moon, Charon, was discovered in 1978. In 2005, 2 more smaller moons were discovered. In 2006, arguments began to arise on whether Pluto was actually large enough to be considered a planet. After much debate, Pluto (along with the asteroid Ceres and the object Eris) became newly classified as dwarf planets.

In 2007, a space probe named New Horizons was launched to gather more information on Pluto. It was scheduled to arrive at the dwarf planet in 2014 or 2015. It was also the first spacecraft to ever visit Pluto.

Pluto is a (dwarf) planet in the Generation One continuity family.

Pluto is a small, icy world first discovered in 1939, and recognized as the ninth planet in Earth's solar system until quite recently. It is now considered a dwarf planet and many astronomers speculate and believe it is not part of the solar system. To this day, there has been many conflicts whether it was a planet or not.
