A star in the Milky Way Galaxy that went nova on Stardate 5121.5 (2268), destroying a system inhabited by four sentient species. One of those populations, that of Minara II, was saved by the Vians.

On stardate 6770.1 (2270), the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise returned home from an antimatter universe by entering a nova in the same galactic position in the antimatter universe as the Minara nova remnant is in our own positive-matter universe.
