Type: Planet
Location: Rigel system
Kandari sector
Alpha Quadrant

Rigel XII, also known as the Rigel mining planet, was the sparsely inhabited twelfth planet of the Rigel system. (TOS: "Mudd's Women") This system was located in the Kandari sector, a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; TNG: "Conspiracy" display graphic)

Conditions on the planet were harsh, and Human habitation was only possible in sealed pressure domes. The atmosphere was capable of supporting humanoid lifeforms. Grit and dust were everywhere, and sandstorms were a frequent occurrence. These storms were especially bad during a magnetic storm. Water was scarce, and plant life was twisted and sere.

In the mid-23rd century, Rigel XII was the site of a lithium mining operation run by Ben Childress with two partners. In 2266, con artist Harcourt Mudd, using the illegal Venus drug, attempted to sell Eve McHuron, Ruth Bonaventure and Magda Kovacs to the miners. (TOS: "Mudd's Women")

The location of Rigel identified in the "The Explored Galaxy" star chart placed it between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant. According to Star Trek: Star Charts (Pg. 21), Rigel XII was classified as a H-class planet.
