Background information Edit
While this planet's name was spelled as 'audet IX in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 1), it appeared as 'aucdet IX in both the episode's script and on an on-screen display monitor in the episode.
"O'det Nine" was the pronunciation for this planet's name from the script pronunciation guide.
The planet model first used here for 'aucdet IX would later be used for Gagarin IV ("Unnatural Selection"), Galorndon Core ("The Enemy"), Barzan II ("The Price"), Jouret IV ("The Best of Both Worlds"), and Bilana III ("New Ground"). For its appearance as 'aucdet IX, the model had a blue color.
