Mercaniad was a star located over 300 parsecs from Federation space.

Mercaniad was very unstable, and affected the orbiting planet Mercan and its inhabitants, the Mercans, in what they called the Ordeal.

When the USS Enterprise was catapulted to Mercan in 2270, the Enterprise stabilized the star and stopped the star system from further occurrences of the Ordeal. (TOS novel: The Abode of Life)
