Beta Capricus was an interesting celestial feature once erroneously believed by Earth researchers to be a star.

In reality, Beta Capricus was only an electromagnetic echo of a distant galaxy. This was not known, however, until 2210 when a Earth starship was sent, with its entire crew in stasis (except for Harry Kim's uncle Jack, who piloted it), on a six-month deep space mission to explore the presumed location of the star only to find, in fact, that there was nothing there.
