Arcturus IV — commonly referred to as, simply, Arcturus — was the fourth of five planets in the Arcturus system. A major cultural and commercial center, Arcturus maintained a Human culture comparable to that of Earth's Elizabethan England. The Arcturans were very influential among Federation members, many of whom, including Anton Karidian, adopted their mode of dress and cultural styles. On Reference Stardate 2/2306 (June 2223), Arcturus, a member planet in the United Federation of Planets with a population of 8.5 billion, had a representative in the Federation Council. Arcturus' primary economic concerns included cultural exchange, industry, trade, and Star Fleet support facilities.
