Alpha Tau was a star system located within the Organian Treaty Zone somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

Alpha Tau's orbit was the location of a number of planets, including fourth planet Alpha Tau IV. It was located outside the normal space lanes.

In the year 1969, the Beta 5 computer chose the system based on its wayward location as the new home for hundreds of clones from Earth. (TOS - Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor comic: "Medics")

It was located a few days away from the Sigma Thernia system. (TOS - Leonard McCoy, Frontier Doctor comic: "Hosts")

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.
