Epsilon Anubis, aka Epsilon Canis Minoris, was a binary star system located in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants. It was visible from Earth in the constellation of Canis Minor, known to ancient Egyptian culture as the Anubis constellation.
History and specifics
Epsilon Anubis was located in a region previously unexplored by the Federation.
In the 20th century, a generation ship arrived in orbit during a period of increased radiation activity in the system, and radiation exposure killed its trained crew, leaving it without anyone to operate its systems. At least one generation later, an Eloksi starship arrived in the system and discovered the derelict vessel. It docked and attempted to aid the survivors, but their actions were misinterpreted and started a war.
In 2274, the stars were beginning another increasing radiation cycle when the starship USS Enterprise arrived to chart the system. A landing party discovered the derelict and attempted to maneuver it away from the system. (TOS comic: "The Savage Within")
