Arachna was a burned-out supernova. Cepheus was located near the gas cloud, and the nearest starbase was Starbase 23. This supernova was located less than 90 light years from the Sol system.

In 2269, the USS Enterprise conducted a science survey of Arachna in order to acquire updated measures of radiation and volume of expansion as the nova entered its cycle of strongest emissions.

The Enterprise coordinated with Starbase 23 during this mission, which it contacted on stardate 55773.3 to inform them that they had arrived at the gas cloud and had started mapping. (TAS: "The Terratin Incident"; ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

In "Two Days and Two Nights", the NX-class Enterprise, set a milestone eighty-two years after an Earth ship colonized a planet in the Cepheus system, by becoming the first Earth ship to travel 90 light years away from the Sol system.
