Sol or the Sun is a yellow dwarf star with an associated star system.

History and specifics

Located in the Alpha Quadrant on the Beta Quadrant border, Sol is orbited with a system of several planets and various planetoids, asteroids and other celestial bodies. The Sol star was born five billion years ago and is the stellar planetary system that includes the planet Earth, home of the Human civilization. (Last Unicorn RPG module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)

Located in sector 001, the oldest extra-terrestrial human colonies are located within the Sol system, including those on Luna, Mars, and Titan. The Sol system is one of the four core systems of the Federation. (ST - Destiny novel: Gods of Night)

Sol's coordinates are 23.9,61.8,0.0. (ST references: Star Trek Maps, The Worlds of the Federation)

Sol vicinity.

The USS Enterprise used the slingshot effect around Sol to travel back to the 23rd century after she was sent back in time to the 1960s when it was dragged into the gravity well of a black star. (TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")

In 2286, Admiral James T. Kirk and his crew used the Klingon Bird-of-Prey, HMS Bounty, to sling-shot around Sol so that they could travel back to 1986 and bring two humpback whales forward in time to save Earth from the Cetacean Probe. (TOS movie, novelization & comic adaptation: The Voyage Home)

Alternate timelines

In an alternate timeline where Montgomery Scott rescued James T. Kirk before he could be absorbed into the Nexus, the Borg Collective assimilated Earth in 2063 and used the Sol system as a base of operations for the Borg Queen in the Alpha Quadrant. The Borg systematically strip mined the planets for raw materials to build fleets of Borg cubes which in turn methodically assimilated the worlds surrounding, starting with Alpha Centauri. A sensor barrier was erected around the system, behind which the Borg continued to amass a fleet until they attacked the time traveling USS Enterprise-D which was attempting to return the timeline to its correct flow by returning Kirk to the Nexus. (Star Trek novel: Engines of Destiny)

In a timeline where Humanity become almost extinct in the 1960s, a temporal instability stranded the parallel Earth in the 70 Ophiuchus system. The planet was returned to its universe with Vedala confluence drives built into an asteroid, in 2274. Unfortunately, the planet had been gone for so long that gravity had shifted the system's planetary orbits, and as a result, all life on Miri's Earth would go extinct. Also in the 2270s, the system was within the Vulcan Protectorate's sphere of influence but actually uninhabited. (DTI novel: Forgotten History)
