Beta Cygni, also known as Cygnia Minor, was a trinary system. Beta Cygni A was a yellow giant star, which was orbited by six planets and its two companion stars. The second planet, Albireo, was Class M, and supported a Human colony that was established in 2195. By 2223, it had grown to a population of 6.5 billion and had become a full member of the United Federation of Planets.
Beta Cygni B was a moderate blue star, and Beta Cygni C was a white dwarf. Beta Cygni C proved to be a variable star with a period of 27 years, causing planet-wide famine during the episodes of high radiation until synthetic foods were developed that could withstand these periodic episodes.
