History and specificsEdit
The Canopus-class starship, as well as other vessels called USS Canopus are all named for this location. The system contains at least five planets, three of which are inhabited. (TOS episodes: "Wolf in the Fold", "Where No Man Has Gone Before", "Arena")
On at least one format of star chart, this system was in the general vicinity of Murasaki 312, Genovese's Star, Theta Mees, Altair III and Janus VI. (TNG episodes: "Yesterday's Enterprise", "The Wounded", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)
In the 2360s decade, this location was noted on a star chart showing deployment of Federation and Cardassian Union ships displayed in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room aboard the starship USS Phoenix. (TNG episode: "The Wounded")
- In TNG video game: Birth of the Federation, the orbital configuration of the game map star systems was randomly generated each time a new game started.
On a 24th century viewscreen display of a tactical situation monitor in an alternate timeline where the Klingon Empire was at war with the United Federation of Planets in the year 2366, Alpha Caranae was listed on a star chart showing Klingon allied forces in relation to Federation positions. (TNG episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)
