Kepler-018 was a star with an associated star system located in the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant, at coordinates -4547, -3.

History and specifics[]

Kepler-018 was in the region of space visible from Earth as the constellation of Cygnus, over 1,400 light-years distant. This was a G class star in the yellow dwarf size range.

The Kepler-018 vicinity was in neutral space unclaimed by major governments by the 23rd century in the Kelvin timeline. This system contained deposits of raw ore, and was the site of a number of planets that included the world Vabii (which was among Kepler-18b, Kepler-18c and Kepler-18d in the system's orbit). Kepler-018 was in the vicinity of Aciben, Bharani, Bubeau, Davidul, Deneva (by way of Kaikara), Draken, Eisenhorn, Eizeb, Fastolf, Kaikara, Sorenle, Vemet, V'varia, Wezen and Zhang. (ST video game: Fleet Command)

Pakled thief ship.

The system has an ID code of 1854874708 in the game software and the player is likely to encounter a Pakled thief starship here.

  • The name of this star is a reference to astronomer Johannes Kepler, as a naming convention of stars in the 20th and 21st centuries involved giving this designation to stars discovered by the Kepler space telescope. Real-world astronomy has noted 3 planets here: Kepler-18b, Kepler-18c and Kepler-18d.
  • While the Fleet Command game does not establish quadrant locations for the game map, the real Kepler-18 is located in the constellation of Cygnus. ST reference: Star Charts, the source that defined the quadrant system's real-world correlation, places the entirety of Cygnus in the Alpha Quadrant.
