The Traveler, 2370

The Traveler, a native of Tau Alpha C

Tau Alpha C, located in the Tau Ceti system, was the home of the humanoid species that The Traveler belonged to. (TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before", "Conspiracy", "Journey's End") At warp 9.5, it would take 123 days to travel from Starbase 133 to Tau Alpha C. A subspace message would take days to travel back and forth between both locations. (TNG: "Remember Me")

The inhabitants of Tau Alpha C were capable of existing outside of time and dimensions, and had very little interest in associating with other more primitive species, until the 2360s, when they became aware of Humans like Wesley Crusher. The Traveler, a native, visited the USS Enterprise-D crew in 2364, and he and Wesley Crusher worked together. (TNG: "Where No One Has Gone Before")

In an alternate universe created after Doctor Beverly Crusher became trapped within a warp bubble, Wesley tried to contact Tau Alpha C for assistance when individuals began disappearing from the Enterprise, with only Dr. Crusher noticing. Ultimately, the entire universe, including Tau Alpha C, disappeared. (TNG: "Remember Me")

"The Explored Galaxy" depicted Tau Ceti between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant.
It was never specified on screen what type of settlement Tau Alpha C was. Only that it was an inhabited location in the Tau Ceti system. The naming is similar to Gamma Canaris N which was according to several reference sources the name of the planetoid of the Companion. (, Star Trek Concordance) According to, Tau Alpha C was the name of a star system. [1] Under naming conventions for stars (ex. Alpha Centauri C), the name would suggest Tau Alpha C was the third star in a trinary star system.
