Deneb IV

Deneb IV

The Deneb system was an inhabited star system. The primary was named Deneb. There were four known planets in this system: Deneb II, Deneb IV, Deneb V, and Deneb XX. Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", "I, Mudd", "Wolf in the Fold"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; DS9: "Whispers") The system was located between Earth and Argelius II. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold")

The system was home to the Denebians and the Bandi, and to animals including the Denebian slime devil and Denebian whale. (DS9: "A Man Alone", "The Nagus"; TAS: "The Ambergris Element")

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 41), there were two systems known as Deneb. Alpha Cygni was one and Deneb Kaitos also known as Beta Ceti was the other.
In a deleted scene from Star Trek Nemesis, a star system with a similar name, the Denab system, was the first assignment of the USS Enterprise-E after the refit of the ship was complete at the end of the film.


Prior to 2265, James T. Kirk and Gary Mitchell had spent some time on Deneb IV. Gary Mitchell spent a night there with a woman he later described as "a nova," producing unspecified "after effects." He also communicated telepathically with some of the Deneb IV natives. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

Some time prior to 2267, the Redjac entity became a mass murderer of women on Deneb II. The entity was never caught and was only known by the name Kesla by the natives. (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold")

In 2267, Harry Mudd attempted to conn the Denebians on Deneb V. He was caught, but escaped the planet before his execution. (TOS: "I, Mudd") In 2270, the crew of the USS Enterprise represented the Federation at the dedication ceremonies for the new Academy of Science on the planet. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

In 2364, the starship USS Enterprise-D visited Deneb IV to investigate the Farpoint Station. The native Bandi claimed it was built by them. The station was however discovered to be a spaceborne entity forced by the Bandi to take the shape of a space station. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")

In 2370, the GHD Per'ot visited Deneb XX before arriving to Deep Space 9. (DS9: "Whispers")
