Marginally a Class M planet,[1] Alfa 177 was the second planet orbiting a white dwarf star[1] in Quadrant IV of the United Federation of Planets.[2] The planet was explored by the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 on Stardate 1672.1. A yellow magnetic ore was discovered that caused a malfunction in the ship's transporter, and duplicated an Alfa 177 canine and Captain Kirk.[4]

Due to the transporter malfunction, a landing party led by Lieutenant Sulu was stranded on the planet's surface. Repairing the transporter became a race against time, as surface temperatures dropped to 120 degrees below zero at night.[4]
