History and specifics
Circa 2248, the USS Enterprise passed through a distortion field left over from Beta 5's transporter beam, and Number One came up with a means of tracing its destination, which led them to this system. (TOS - Crew comic: "Shadows of the Past")
In, 2271, Kloor's Klingon battlecruiser engaged the USS Yorktown in this system, then self destructed to avoid providing evidence they'd violated the Organian Peace Treaty. (TOS - Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor comic: "Medics")
- The location described precludes this system from being the similarly named Alpha Tauri or Tau Alpha.
