The Treaty of Organia, also known as the Organian Peace Treaty, was an agreement enforced by the powerful noncorporeal beings of Organia upon the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, ending the First Federation-Klingon War in 2267. The treaty established a Neutral Zone between the two powers. (The Original Series: "Errand of Mercy")

The treaty was imposed after the Federation tried to stop the Klingons from occupying Organia. Strategically located for use as a base by either side, both felt it was important enough to go to war.

The advanced civilization of the Organians, who had evolved beyond the need for a corporeal form, declared that they would allow no hostilities. They decreed that any disputed planet would be awarded to whichever of the powers could most effectively develop and manage it, and that starship crews were entitled to use each others' facilities, such as space stations. (The Original Series: "The Trouble With Tribbles")

The Treaty of Organia was eventually superseded by the Khitomer Accords of 2293, which bore out the Organians' prediction that the Klingons and the Federation would one day become friends.
