The USS Enterprise in orbit of Beta XII-A in 2268

Type: Planet
Location: Near the Federation-Klingon border

Beta XII-A was an uninhabited planet. This planet was located near the Federation-Klingon border.

In 2268, the crew of the USS Enterprise answered a distress call from a colony. There were a hundred men, women, and children in this colony. According to the distress call, they were under attack by an unidentified starship. When a Klingon battle cruiser was detected approaching this planet, Captain James Kirk assumed that the Klingons were responsible for the attack. The Klingons would steadfastly deny any involvement in the destruction of the colony.

The incident was later determined to be a fabrication created by an entity to incite a feud between the crews of the Enterprise and the Klingon battle cruiser. (TOS: "Day of the Dove")

For the pre-remastered episode, the planet model for Alpha Carinae II was first used for Capella IV ("Friday's Child"). It was used again for Neural ("A Private Little War", Triskelion ("The Gamesters of Triskelion"), Kelvan planet ("By Any Other Name"), Ekos ("Patterns of Force"), Alpha Carinae II ("The Ultimate Computer"), Triacus ("And the Children Shall Lead"), and unnamed planet ("Is There in Truth No Beauty?"} and for the Medusan homeworld ("Is There in Truth No Beauty?"). It was used later for the Kalandan outpost ("That Which Survives"), Elba II ("Whom Gods Destroy"), and Sarpeidon ("All Our Yesterdays"). For the remastered episode, a new planet model was created by an unknown CGI artist.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts, in 2378, Beta XII-A was quarantined. The planet was located in the Beta Leonis Minoris planetary system. (pg. 62) Beta Leonis Minoris was a binary star system. Beta Leonis Minoris A was a G-class star with a magnitude of +3, which was ten times brighter than Sol. Beta Leonis B was a G-class star. In 2378, the Beta Leonis Minoris system was located in or near Federation space. (pg. 62)
