Copernicus was a star system, located somewhere in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

The Copernicus system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including seventh planet Copernicus VII. In the 2260s decade, before stardate 4575.9, the system was destroyed by an alien fleet of linked units when they artificially aged its primary star through chronometric radiation into entering the supernova phase of its life in order to harvest stellar matter to refuel and replicate themselves.

One of the systems' planets, Copernicus VII, was an inhabited planet affiliated with the Federation or perhaps a Federation colony. Its inhabitants sent out a distress signal prior to the star's destruction, bringing in the USS Enterprise to investigate. Sadly the starship arrived too late to render assistance to the inhabitants.

The inner planets had all been destroyed by the generated supernova and the orbits of the three surviving outer planets had been severely disrupted. (TOS comic: "Swarm")
