Ok, geeks, I need some help. What is the name of the trope that says: "The inhabitants of that place (e.g. island or planet) are too dangerous. All interaction with them is forbidden!" The one example I can think of regards Talos IV:


Some folks have suggested (Absolute Xenophone)[tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php] or something akin. That's close, but not what I'm thinking of, because that just describes those beings and why they're dangerous. What I'm talking about is strictly what's done on "our" side -- making that planet/island off limits by some official law or decree.
