Mekkar 7 was one of dozens of locations referenced in the Sci-Fi Channel television series Farscape. Although reference was made to it in the Premiere episode, it has never actually made an appearance in the series. Mekkar 7 serves as a common background trait shared between the characters of Ka D'Argo and Zotoh Zhaan.
Mekkar 7 was a maximum-security labor planet located within Peacekeeper territory. Two of its more infamous prisoners was the Delvian priest Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan and the Luxan warrior Ka D'Argo. Zhaan spent three years at Mekkar 7 working with and maintaining Peacekeeper technology such as the Intelli-alien interface. This work provided Zhaan with a keen awareness of the inner workings of biomechanoids and proved advantageous when attempting to understand the control systems for Leviathan ships. D'Argo however, did not have it as easy as Zhaan. Sentenced to hard labor, he was put to work in the Kemlac mines, known for its brutal environmental conditions and high fatality rate. Both of them would eventually escape the Peacekeepers and reunite on the Leviathan ship known as Moya.
