History and specifics[edit | edit source]
In the year 2266, the Federation starship USS Enterprise explored the Alpha Helios system. The ship's crew launched the Space Rescue Bug to recover an escape pod, then learned about a creeping sickness plague. Samples of Coltac herbs brought back from Zargot's neighboring planet Coltac aboard the shuttlecrawler Space Bug X-4 were used to develop an antidote for the suffering Zargotians. (TOS comic: "Target: Zargot")
- The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "alpha" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Helios", of which Alpha Helios would logically be indicated to be the most prominent star or system.
