History and specifics
The system contained at least five planets, the fifth of which was Chalna, homeworld of the Chalnoth civilization. The USS Stargazer visited the system in 2354 on a mission of diplomacy. (TNG comic: "Children of Chaos"; TNG episode: "Allegiance")
In a version of the Kelvin timeline, Kaus Borealis was located in the Neutral Zone, a swath of space coveted between the Federation, Klingon Empire and Romulan Star Empire. In the 2260s decade, the system was patrolled by Suliban nomads and lay within several light-years from the Klingon border. The system was rich with asteroids suitable for mining pasteel.
In the year 2262, the artificial intelligence Maia and her Independent commander were offered contracts by the Klingon colony on Saxol. (ST video game: Fleet Command missions: "Once More Unto the Breach", "Day of Honor", "A Bitter Taste")
