History and specifics[edit | edit source]
This system's multiple star components include the stars 21 Tauri and 22 Tauri, and supports a planetary system that includes Asterope IV. This system was, by the late 24th century, a holding of the Federation. (ST video game: Starfleet Command III)
- In modern day astronomical notation, the double star of Asterope have been assigned their separate numerical names, while the older name "Asterope" referred to them as seen together. By the modern notation, the fourth planet referred to in ST video game: Starfleet Command III would orbit 21 Tauri, but the older notation would allow an interpretation that world could orbit the other star in the vicinity.
- No history or specifics are established for this location in Starfleet Command III, as its name was arbitrarily selected for a Federation system on the game map by the game software, with random attributes.
