Epsilon Anubis B was a neutron star that orbited its primary, Epsilon Anubis A, in the Epsilon Anubis binary star system, located in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

The neutron star continually attracted stellar material from its primary. At periodic intervals in their orbits, an encounter phase between the star and its primary produced extremely high levels of x-rays and gamma radiation.

In the 20th century, a generation ship arrived in the system during one such period. Its proximity to the neutron star resulted in radiation exposure that killed all of its trained personnel, leaving it trapped in orbit without anyone who could operate its systems.

In 2274, the starship USS Enterprise charted the system, discovering that the derelict generation ship was approaching perilously close to the neutron star. A landing party attempted to restart the derelict's fusion reactors before radiation levels killed everyone aboard. (TOS comic: "The Savage Within")

The real-world star is a white dwarf.
