Omicron Ceti (also known as Mira) is the primary star in a binary star system with five associated planets. It is a variable red supergiant star. The secondary in the system is a blue dwarf star which orbits the primary. (ST reference: Star Trek Maps, TOS comic: "... Like a Woman Scorned!")
History and specificsEdit
Omicron Ceti is on the fringes of Federation space, about two dozen light-years coreward of Kropasar, in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant. Its emissions include deadly berthold rays, rendering its otherwise eminently suitable planet Omicron Ceti III unsuitable for colonization. (TOS episode & novelization: This Side of Paradise, SCE eBook: The Future Begins)
In the 2360s decade, this location was noted on a star chart showing deployment of Federation and Cardassian Union ships displayed in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room aboard the starship USS Phoenix. (TNG episode: "The Wounded")
On a 24th century viewscreen display of a tactical situation monitor in an alternate timeline where the Klingon Empire was at war with the United Federation of Planets in the year 2366, Omicron Ceti was listed on a star chart showing Klingon allied forces in relation to Federation positions. (TNG episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)
Omicron Ceti was listed on the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alternate timeline tactical situation monitor showing progress of the Klingon war with the Federation, and a later re-use of this chart in "The Wounded".
