T-Tauri type star

A T-Tauri type star in the Ngame Nebula.

A T-Tauri type was a type of star. It was unusual for a T-Tauri star system to have a planet in the Class M range.

Small, extremely unstable wormholes are a phenomenon sometimes encountered in T-Tauri systems – in the century between 2267 and 2367, thirty-nine had been mapped.

In 2367, the USS Enterprise-D discovered a T-Tauri star system within the Ngame Nebula. The system had one planet, a Class M world, home to the xenophobic Paxans. In order to prevent the destruction of the Enterprise, its crew created the illusion that the Paxan planet was a frozen gas giant similar to Tethys III, and that the system contained a wormhole that flung the starship 0.54 parsecs from the system as it approached. All records of the reality of the Paxan system were erased and a hazard advisory was sent to Starfleet Command concerning the wormhole. (TNG: "Clues")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 491), a T-Tauri star was a "young star whose diameter oscillates as that star settles into a stable size."
