McCoy with two cabaret girls from Rigel II recreated by the Shore Leave Planet

Rigel II was the inhabited second planet of the Rigel system. Rigel II was located less than ninety light years away from Earth. (TOS: "Shore Leave"; ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

Lieutenant Commander Leonard McCoy of the Federation starship USS Enterprise once met a pair of scantily-clad women in a cabaret chorus line on Rigel II. In 2267, the two women were recreated from Dr. McCoy's imagination on the Shore Leave Planet in the Omicron Delta region. (TOS: "Shore Leave")

According to the pronunciation guide for TNG: "All Good Things...", Rigel was pronounced as "RYE-jell". [1]
In "Two Days and Two Nights", the NX-class Enterprise set a milestone several months after its mission to Rigel X by becoming the first Earth ship to travel ninety light years away from the Sol system.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pp. 52, 59, "United Federation of Planets I"), Rigel II, also known as Beta Rigel II, was a M-class planet. The planet was a member planet of both the United Rigel Colonies and the United Federation of Planets. Rigel IV was admitted, along with the United Rigel Colonies, to the Federation in 2202.
