Having a large supply of dilithium almost instantly promoted a planet into prominence in interplanetary politics, as other species seek trade. Some planets known for their dilithium deposits include [[Coridan III]], [[Troyius]], and [[Avaton II]]. ({{g|TOS|Starfleet Academy: Strategic Command}})

The [[planet]] [[Direidi]] was one of the most concentrated locations of dilithium in known [[Federation]] space, and was located on the border to [[Klingon]] space. ({{n|TOS|How Much for Just the Planet?}})

During a trip back to the [[20th century]] to retrieve two humpback whales, the dilithium crystals of the [[HMS Bounty|Klingon ship]] Kirk and his crew were using began to wear out. Since fission based nuclear reactors was still in use, Captain [[Spock]] determined that it might have been possible to obtain high energy photons from such a reactor, and bombard the crystals with them - thus causing dilithium to recrystallize. After obtaining such photons from the United States aircraft carrier ''Enterprise'', Spock and Engineer [[Montgomery Scott]] were able to successfully recrystallize dilithium.
