Eminiar is a star[2] with an associated star system[3], located somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants, in Federation space, at coordinates 2.15S 5.77E[1], in Quadrant 2[4].

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

Eminiar is part of the NGC 321 star cluster[3] visible from Earth in the constellation of Cetus. The Eminiar system's orbit was the location of 11 planets[2], including third planet Vendikar and seventh planet Eminiar VII, homeworld of the Eminian civilization[3].

Explored galaxy map showing Eminiar.

On star charts of the explored galaxy, this system could be seen to be in the general vicinity of Talos, Beta Aurigae and Alfa 177. (TNG episode: "Conspiracy", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)

Eminiar's star, located at coordinates -37.0, 222.3, 25.1, was a large yellow star with 11 planets total. (ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation)

Another star chart showed this system in the vicinity of Tsugh Khaidnn, Theta Mees, Denkir system and Memory Delta. (TNG episodes: "The Wounded", "Yesterday's Enterprise", 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")

Alternate realities[edit | edit source]

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, Eminiar was listed on a star chart showing Klingon allied forces in relation to Federation positions.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Eminiar system was not mentioned in canon after TOS, but as a homage was listed on the "Conspiracy" explored galaxy map and the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alternate timeline tactical situation monitor showing progress of the Klingon war with the Federation, and a later re-use of this chart in "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. In particular, this was listed only as the "Vendikar system".
