Gamma Trianguli VI is a tropical class M planet ruled by a computer called Vaal.

The planet, described as an "Eden"-like paradise, was consistently temperate to tropical throughout its entire surface, only becoming mildly cooler at the poles. These conditions were previously thought to be impossible, and were only made so under the direct environmental control of Vaal, which extended deep beneath the planet's surface over the entire globe. The majority of the flora was very attractive. Aside from the natives, no animal life was encountered by initial surveys. Vaal was obviously put in place on Gamma Trianguli VI by a race to care for the native inhabitants for some unknown purpose, although the natives had no memory or historical record of this.

Although an Eden at first glance, under Vaal's control the planet soon proved to be the opposite. When Enterprise crewmembers beamed down on a survey mission, they were immediately assaulted by the planet's dangerous defense mechanisms. Deadly flora, artificial lightning strikes, and explosive mineral formations killed three crewmembers and injured a fourth. The initially friendly natives, at Vaal's behest, also became hostile and assaulted the landing party, killing a fourth crewmember. Vaal itself also began pulling the Enterprise out of orbit, prompting Captain James T. Kirk to take retaliatory action and destroy Vaal. Following its destruction, presumably the planet's environment would quickly become those exhibited by most class M worlds. (TOS: "The Apple")
