BackgroundEdit

Aldebaran was a real star. According to Startrek.com, Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri) was a spectral type K5 star located 68 light years from Sol. [1]

For the remastered episode "Up The Long Ladder", Aldebaran replaced Alderaan.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 60), Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri) was a quadrinary star system. Aldebaran A was a K-class star with a magnitude of -1, which was a hundred times brighter than Sol. Aldebaran B and C were K-class stars and Aldebaran D was an M-class star.

A scene from the script of TNG: "The Dauphin" would have had Enterprise scheduled to visit a place called Aldebaran Zeta.
