Pollux[1] (or Beta Geminorum[2]) was a star with an associated star system, located in the Orion sector[3] and Sirius sector block[3] of the galaxy's Beta Quadrant,[2] in Federation[3] space. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?", ST reference: Star Charts, STO - Tutorial mission: "Communication Breakdown")

Pollux was around 33 light-years from Earth, where it is visible as part of the constellation of Gemini. Pollux was a K0IIIb class orange star, an orange giant. (ST reference: Star Charts)

History and specifics[]

The K-type orange giant Pollux in 2410.

The Federation starships USS Pollux, including the Pollux-class, were named for this location.

The orbiting star system at Pollux contained the planet Pollux II. (TOS comic: "All of Me")

The Pollux system was the location of the planet Pollux IV. That class M planet and the rest of the system were surveyed by the USS Enterprise in the year 2267. They met Apollo, last of the Beings, who became romantically involved with crewmember Carolyn Palamas before dissolving himself into the wind. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

The star system at Pollux contained the planet Pollux V. (TOS video game: 25th Anniversary)

In TNG video game: Birth of the Federation, the orbital configuration of the game map star systems was randomly generated each time a new game started. Neither were any history or specifics are established for this location in Starfleet Command III, as its name was arbitrarily selected for a Federation system on the game map by the game software, with random attributes.

In 2409, the Borg Collective returned to local space and erected a transwarp gate in the orbit of Pollux IV. The USS Khitomer was left damaged. Its recovery effort was aided by the USS Chimera. Captain Nog and a field-promoted lieutenant in command of the late Captain Masc Taggart's frigate investigated the Borg presence and engaged waves of Borg spheres and Borg probes until the Khitomer and Pollux were safe. (STO - Tutorial mission: "Communication Breakdown")
