Rigel V was the inhabited fifth planet of the Rigel system. It was the homeworld of the Rigelians, a warp capable humanoid species. (TOS: "Journey to Babel"; ENT: "Demons", "Terra Prime") This planet was located in the Kandari sector, a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. Andor was located nearby, in the same sector, and Earth was less than ninety light years away. (TNG: "Conspiracy" display graphic; ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

In early 2155, the Rigelians participated in talks discussing their wish to join as a possible member in the Coalition of Planets along with Humans, Tellarites, Andorians, Coridans and Vulcans. (ENT: "Demons", "Terra Prime")

Prior to stardate 3842, an experimental medical trial of a chemical stimulant was successfully completed on test subjects. This stimulant speeded up reproduction and replacement of blood in the body. (TOS: "Journey to Babel")

In "Two Days and Two Nights", the NX-class Enterprise, set a milestone several months after its mission to Rigel X, by becoming the first Earth ship to travel 90 light years away from the Sol system.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pgs. 52, 59, "United Federation of Planets I"), Rigel V, also known as Beta Rigel V was a M-class planet. The planet was a member planet of both the United Rigel Colonies and the United Federation of Planets. Rigel IV was admitted, along with the United Rigel Colonies, to the Federation in 2202. According to The Worlds of the Federation (page 36), Rigel V became a Federation member in 2184
