Genesis was a planet created from the gaseous matter of the Mutara Nebula as a result of the detonation of the Genesis device in 2285. Because of David Marcus' use of unstable protomatter in the device, the planet degraded into an unlivable rock later that year. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

After Captain Spock's death aboard the USS Enterprise, his photon tube coffin soft-landed on the planet where the Genesis effect resurrected his body, though he aged rapidly in synchrony with the planet's unstable shifts. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

During its study of the planet, the USS Grissom was destroyed by a Klingon bird-of-prey commanded by Kruge. The only survivors were Saavik and David Marcus, who had been on the planet, though Marcus was later killed at Kruge's order. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock; Star Trek: Grissom)
