Gamma Trianguli VI sun

This sun was the primary of Gamma Trianguli VI. It was located in the Gamma Trianguli sector of the Alpha Quadrant.

Gamma Trianguli VI, the homeworld of the Vaalians, had an atmosphere which was regulated by the super computer Vaal. Under Vaal's governance, the atmosphere filtered out any harmful effects from this star. The Vaalians believed that Vaal caused the sun to shine. (TOS: "The Apple")

The Pentarus system had a sun, which caused very hot temperatures on the habitable Lambda Paz moon located in the system. (TNG: "Final Mission")

Penthara IV sun

This sun was the primary of Penthara IV.

One of the plans proposed to save the planet after an asteroid impact was to use drilling phasers to open pockets of carbon dioxide. The idea was that enough of the gas would be released to create a temporary envelope trapping the heat of the sun. This greenhouse effect would give the planet time to mend. (TNG: "A Matter of Time")

Psi 2000 sun

This star was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

The planet Psi 2000, once remarkably like Earth, became a frozen wasteland after this star "went dark". (TOS: "The Naked Time")
