History and specificsEdit
Alnilam is visible from Earth in the space denoted by Humans as the Orion constellation, located 1,340 light-years from Sol, in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant. This is a B class star, a blue supergiant. Together with Mintaka and Alnitak, Alnilam is one of the three main stars that make up the "belt of Orion" asterism. (VOY novel: Pathways)
Alnilam is an ancient home of the Orion civilization. The planet Vondem in this system's orbit was considered the Orion homeworld in the 23rd century of the Kelvin timeline. (TOS - Reunion comic: "Part 1")
