Decapod 10
Native species Decapodians
Member of The Democratic Order of Planets
First appearance "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love?"
Decapod 10 is a Planet consisting of hundreds of sand islands. It is primarily inhabited by humanoid, lobster-like creatures called Decapodians. The planet's flag is red with a white circle in the middle, in which there is a lobster claw holding a hammer. (This flag is similar to the flag of the former Soviet Union (USSR: Union of Soviet Socialist Republics), which, along with the planet's warlike ways, suggests a Communist government.)

Decapod 10 is the original home of Dr. John A. Zoidberg. Its people first came to Earth sometime in the 23rd century. Their visitation was linked to the extinction of the anchovy. In 3003, this planet launched a successful invasion of Earth, though the resulting occupation was less successful.


  • The anthem of Decapod 10 is the "fight theme" from the original Star Trek.
  • The Decapod 10 flag is very similar to the flag of the Soviet Union.
  • A Decapod is also the nickname among railroaders for a steam engine with 10 driving wheels.
