An incipient nova was the scientific name given to the initial stages of events in a star that was approaching a critical reaction in exploding into a nova or supernova.

History and specificsEdit

When a naked singularity was discovered near Aleph Prime in the year 2270, it was discovered that a number of stellar bodies in the area had accelerated their aging process and would approach incipient nova phases much sooner than should have been possible. Spock traveled from a future alternate timeline where many stars indeed displayed this entropy effect, a side effect of Georges Mordreaux's time changer technology. By moving back to an early point in the process, Spock convinced Mordreaux not to test the technology further and the damage was halted. (TOS novel: The Entropy Effect)
