History and specifics[edit | edit source]

It is a large G class yellow star with magnitude -1 located in the general vicinity of Outpost Delta 1, as well as Sigma Geminorum, Boreth and the Alawanir Nebula. (ST reference: Star Charts)

Iota Geminorum's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including fourth planet Iota Geminorum IV, a.k.a. Tribble Prime, the homeworld of tribbles.

In 2259 of the Kelvin timeline, the USS Enterprise detected a Klingon bird-of-prey in the system, then disarmed a series of bombs on the fourth planet. (TOS - The Truth About Tribbles comics: "Part 1", "Part 2")

In 2267 in the prime reality, Argelian exobiologist Yersa began traveling to the system, visiting several times. (TOS - Strange New Worlds I short story: "The Last Tribble")

In 2268, the IKS Gr'oth entered the system and used quantum bombs to cause the extinction of tribbles. (TOS - New Visions comic: "The Great Tribble Hunt")
