The surface of Alfa 177

Alfa 177 was an uninhabited planet. This was the homeworld for a species of dog. The location of Alfa 177 in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted in the "The Explored Galaxy" star chart. (TOS: "The Enemy Within"; TNG: "Conspiracy" production art)

This planet had a nighttime temperature that reached 120° below zero. The planet was capable of supporting life despite this, and it was also rich in a soft yellow magnetic ore with highly unusual properties.

In 2266, the USS Enterprise was on a specimen-gathering mission to this planet. While there, they brought aboard one of the dogs native to the planet. Also, a member of the landing party became covered with the yellow magnetic ore, which damaged the transporters and caused the device to divide transporter signals. (TOS: "The Enemy Within")

According to Startrek.com, Alfa 177 was a Class M world. [1]
On the star chart, Alfa 177 was positioned between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. According to dialog in "Call to Arms", the two were Alpha Quadrant powers.
This planet's name was spelled as "Alfa" on screen in the "The Explored Galaxy" star chart, in the Star Trek Encyclopedia (2nd ed., p. 6), Star Trek Maps (pg. 22) and in the Star Trek: The Original Series 365 (p. 043). However, the The Star Trek Compendium (4th ed., p. 34) used "Alpha".
