Beta Aurigae (34 Aurigae or Menkalinan) was a star system, a trinary star located in the galaxy's Alpha Quadrants, in Federation space at coordinates 2.07N 5.82W. This system is visible from Earth in the constellation of Auriga, 82 light years distant.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

The Beta Aurigae system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including seventh planet Beta Aurigae VII and Callista, a Vulcan agricultural and scientific colony in the 23rd century. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)

Beta Aurigae VII, was once homeworld to the Zalkatians. (ENT - The Brave and the Bold, Book One short story: "Prelude: Discovery")

At some point prior to the 2220s decade, the Vulcans established a colony on the planet Callista in the Beta Aurigae system. In the year 2225, a colony ship commanded by Captain Mendez headed for that colony went off course, crashing on a world the survivors later dubbed "The Frontier". (TOS short story: "The Leader")

In 2268, an Interstellar Geophysical Conference was held on Beta Aurigae III. (TOS comic: "Murder on the Enterprise")

In 2269 the USS Enterprise rendevoused with the USS Potemkin in the Beta Aurigae system. (TOS episode: "Turnabout Intruder"; TOS comic: "Captain's Personal Log")
