A Decapodian beach.

Decapod X, also written as Decapod 10, is the homeworld of the Decapodians. Rather than having continents, the entire planet consists of a series of massive sandbar islands. As a result, the entire planet is covered in beaches. The sky is blue, but with a slight green tint compared to Earth. From available data, it seems to have one small, rocky moon like Luna, but appears to be in orbit around a gas giant. The resulting gravitational tides may be the reason for the lack of rocky continents.


Orbiting a gas giant also means the planet has two different "years" - a short year for each trip around the gas giant (a few months), and a longer year for each trip around the sun (many years). Xenobiologists speculate that the resulting complex seasonal cycles led to the complex life cycle of Decapodians. Mating frenzies like the one Zoidberg tried to participate in may only occur at a certain point in the solar year.

Decapodian Flag

The Decapodian Flag.

The Decapodian Flag is red, with a white circle in the center showing a Decapodians claw holding a black hammer, similar to the familiar sickle-and-hammer flag of socialist governments (particular that of the former USSR).

Trivia Edit

  • The entire Decapod System is named after crustaceans, which are classified with the scientific term "decapoda".
  • Since the flag is only shown once in A Taste of Freedom, so it is not known whether this image is the civil flag or a war ensign.
