A pole was the most northern or southern part of a planet, asteroid, or comet.
In 2151, Sub-commander T'Pol suggested to land the shuttlepod near one of the two poles on Archer's Comet as the surface ice would be more stable out of direct sunlight. (ENT: "Breaking the Ice")
Gamma Trianguli VI was a planet with a consistent tropical climate of 76 °F, with only minor variation at the poles. (TOS: "The Apple")
In 2366, Angosian prisoner Roga Danar managed to escape the sensors of the USS Enterprise-D for a short time. Commander William T. Riker mentioned the possibility that he could hang over the planet's pole as the magnetic field would confuse the ship's sensors. (TNG: "The Hunted")
