The following is a list of unnamed Alpha and Beta Quadrant stars.

Altamid sun Edit

The planet Altamid was seen to have a nearby star. (Star Trek Beyond)

Argolis Cluster star Edit

Argolis Cluster star

A star in the Argolis Cluster

In 2368 the USS Enterprise-D hid in the chromosphere of this star. (TNG: "I Borg")

Arkonian planet sun Edit

An unnamed planet claimed by the Arkonians had a nearby sun, which caused issues for an Arkonian and Human that were stranded on a moon of the planet in 2151. (ENT: "Dawn")

Badlands star Edit

Badlands star, Heart of stone

A star in the Badlands

This star in the Badlands was orbited by a gas giant which itself was orbited by at least one moon. (DS9: "Heart of Stone")

Binary stars Edit

Enterprise nx in binary system

Two stars

These two stars of a binary star system caused only four nights in a month on a nearby planet. (ENT: "The Catwalk")

Borg renegade star Edit

Borg renegade star

The star of Lore's Borg planet

In 2370, the USS Enterprise-D lured a rogue Borg ship into this star's corona and destroyed it with a solar flare. (TNG: "Descent, Part II")

Class L planet's sun Edit

An Class L planet where Odo and Quark crash-landed in 2373 had a sun that was described by Odo as not much of a sun. Despite this, it shone light on the planet. (DS9: "The Ascent")

Deinonychus system star Edit

Deinonychus VII moon and star

Sun and moon of Deinonychus VII

This star was orbited by Deinonychus VII. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas")

Dyson sphere star Edit

Dyson sphere star

A star inside a Dyson sphere

This G-type star was located at the center of a Dyson sphere discovered by the USS Enterprise-D in 2369. (TNG: "Relics")

Exo III sun Edit

As of the 23rd century, the sun of Exo III's system had been fading for half a million years. As it did, the inhabitants moved underground.

The sun might conceivably be named on a fact sheet on the planet that appeared in the episode but was unreadable on screen. The word "orbit" can be deciphered on the graphic.

Kataan star system star Edit

The primary of the inhabited Kataan star system went nova approximately a thousand years before the 2360s. This event was heralded by droughts on an inhabited planet in the system, Kataan. (TNG: "The Inner Light")

Klingon star Edit

Klingon star, Redemption II

A star in Klingon space

In 2368 during the Klingon Civil War, Kurn used a clever technique of engaging warp drive near this star's surface, causing a solar flare which destroyed the two Klingon pursuers. (TNG: "Redemption II")

Kuiper belt star Edit

Kuiper belt star

A star orbited by a Kuiper belt

In 2375 Odo and Weyoun 6 hid from four Jem'Hadar attack ships in the Kuiper belt of this star. (DS9: "Treachery, Faith and the Great River")

L-class planet's sun Edit

The USS Olympia crashed on an unnamed planet orbiting a sun. Captain Lisa Cusak survived for a time, and only after some time on the planet saw the sun rise. (DS9: "The Sound of Her Voice")

M24 Alpha system suns Edit

The M24 Alpha system had a trinary sun. (TOS: "The Gamesters of Triskelion")

Monac sun Edit

In 2375 General Martok and Lieutenant Commander Worf successfully destroyed the shipyards using just the IKS Rotarran, by triggering a solar plasma ejection from a magnetic instability on the Monac sun. (DS9: "Image in the Sand", "Shadows and Symbols")

Organia sun Edit

During the First Federation-Klingon War, James T. Kirk tried to warn the Organians that Klingons would move against their planet "as surely as your sun rises". (TOS: "Errand of Mercy")

Pentarus system sun Edit

The Pentarus system had a sun, which caused very hot temperatures on the habitable Lambda Paz moon located in the system. (TNG: "Final Mission")

Psi 2000 sun Edit

The planet Psi 2000, once remarkably like Earth, became a frozen wasteland after its sun "went dark". (TOS: "The Naked Time")

Risa suns Edit

Binary stars setting over the Temtibi Lagoon on Risa

Risa had two suns, which were described as "hot". (DS9: "Let He Who Is Without Sin...")

Romulan system primary Edit

Romulan system map

Romulan sun

This was the star around which Remus orbited. One side of Remus never saw the sun, and neither did Shinzon while he was exiled there. (Star Trek Nemesis)

Both dialogue and the graphic shown in Nemesis suggest a single sun, in contradiction to the Star Trek Maps (p. 29) and The Worlds of the Federation (p. 148), which both place the Romulan star system around a binary star system of two White dwarves.


Sector 1156 star Edit

Sector 1156 star

A star in Sector 1156

This star in Sector 1156 was orbited by the D'Arsay archive which at first appeared to be a rogue comet. (TNG: "Masks")

Sector 396 Star Edit

In 2266, the USS Enterprise rendezvoused with Haftel's transport near this star in Sector 396. (TNG: "The Offspring")

Sigma Draconis star Edit

Sigma Draconis system

The Sigma Draconis primary

The primary of the Sigma Draconis system was classified as spectral type gamma-9.

The position of this yellow dwarf star was depicted on a system map that was displayed on the main viewscreen of the USS Enterprise bridge in 2268. (TOS: "Spock's Brain")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pp. 19, 44), it was named Sigma Draconis and located in Sector 004 (Sigma Draconis sector).

Supernova of 2387 Edit

In 2387, a star in close proximity to Romulus went supernova and threatened the galaxy. To stop the threat, Ambassador Spock used red matter to create a black hole which consumed the star's energy. Before he could successfully carry out his mission, however, the supernova reached Romulus, destroying the planet and all of its inhabitants. Among those killed were the wife and unborn child of Nero, who swore vengeance against Spock, Vulcan, and the Federation for letting his world die. While Nero confronted Spock, both of their ships were pulled into the black hole which had consumed the star, sending them back in time and resulting in the creation of the alternate reality. (Star Trek)

In the script of Star Trek, this star was referred to as being in the Beta Quadrant. [1]

Apocrypha Edit

Having a supernova threaten the entire galaxy is a physical impossibility under normal circumstances due to the laws of physics limiting its expansion rate to below the speed of light, and the expansion of the blast wave would result in it eventually dissipating, making it virtually impossible for it to cause severe damage to a warp-capable society such as the Romulan Star Empire, let alone the entire galaxy. This discrepancy was explained several different ways in non-canon works.

In the comic book series Star Trek: Countdown, this star and its system were named "Hobus". The comic explained that the star's galactic threat came from its unusual ability to transform anything it contacted into energy, which it then consumed, increasing its power and causing it to expand farther and faster throughout the galaxy.

The Star Trek novelization instead stated that the star had merely threatened systems in its own vicinity rather than the entire galaxy.

A third explanation appears in the backstory of Star Trek Online, which states that the shock wave propagated through subspace at faster-than-light speeds. Also in the game's back story, a scandal occurred several years later involving rumors that the Vulcan Science Academy knew about the instability of the star but did nothing until Spock attempted to save Romulus with the Jellyfish. The scandal resulted in several resignations and sowed seeds of distrust towards the Vulcans.

It was also confirmed by the Featured Episode series "Cloaked Intentions" that Remus was also destroyed. However, the Romulans and Remans still continue their prejudices towards each other. It is also revealed that the supernova was not a natural occurrence, but was engineered by then-Praetor Taris, who did so under orders from the Iconians (though she claims she was duped by her then-science officer, Hakeev of the Tal Shiar).

In the more recent reference book Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", p. 35), the explosion of Hobus was called a "subspace supernova". This event resulted in the destruction of the entire Romulan star system, with billions killed. The cause of the explosion was unclear. The star was located in the Beta Quadrant. There was some contention on where precisely the star was located. On p. 35, the star was located in the Romulan Neutral Zone. Yet, in the "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385" and "Position of the Romulan Star Empire", the star was located "southeast" of Romulus and quite some distance from the Neutral Zone. On the "Position of the Romulan Star Empire", which was a map of the Romulan Empire – prepared by the Stellar Archive Artist Lsel Essik, from the Romulan Master Data Catalog, in 2366 – Hobus was identified as a Romulan system.

Tamaal's system stars Edit

Twin stars

Tamaal was located in a binary star system. (ENT: "Canamar")

Tkon Empire sun Edit

The Tkon Empire went extinct 600,000 years ago, according to legend because their sun went supernova. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")
