Malthus-4 is a desolate planet which is used by Earth for the incarceration of prisoners.[1]


An extremely warlike race.1


  1. Presumably the warlike nature of the resident population, combined with the desolate nature of the landscape, prompted selection of the planet as a destination for Earth's prisoners.


Knowledge of Malthus-4 is passed by the captain to their Macommonian created duplicate, in order to foil the Macommonian plot to capture the starship Traveller.[2]
