Alpha Carinae II was an inhabited planet. Classified as Class M, this was the homeworld for an intelligent species. This was the second planet in the Alpha Carinae star system.

The planet was a conventional M class world with an oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere. On the planet's surface, there were two major landmasses and a number of islands. There were twenty-nine other planets that were biologically similar to Alpha Carinae II.
