Rigel V was the inhabited fifth planet of the Rigel system. It was the homeworld of the Rigelians, a warp-capable humanoid species. (TOS: "Journey to Babel"; ENT: "Demons", "Terra Prime") This planet was located less than ninety light years away from Earth, in the Alpha Quadrant. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

In early 2155, the Rigelians participated in talks discussing their wish to join as a possible member in the Coalition of Planets along with Humans, Tellarites, Andorians, Coridans and Vulcans. (ENT: "Demons", "Terra Prime")

Prior to stardate 3842, an experimental medical trial of a chemical stimulant was successfully completed on test subjects. This stimulant speeded up reproduction and replacement of blood in the body. (TOS: "Journey to Babel")

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 90 light years away from the Sol system.
During the Whale Probe crisis of 2286, a Starfleet Command Table Operator reported that they were updating graphics from Rigel V. The line mentioning this location was cut from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. [1]
