Ket-Cheleb (also known as Vulcan/Vulcanis A I, Nevasa I, Ko'vel I or 40 Eridani A I) was a planet, the first planet in the 40 Eridani star system, in orbit of the star 40 Eridani A. (Last Unicorn RPG modules: The Way of Kolinahr, Planets of the UFP)
- The first planet of Vulcan's system was first mentioned as early as ST reference: Spaceflight Chronology, although it was never named except in two installments of the Last Unicorn RPG. ST reference: Star Trek Maps identified the system's first world as the planet Vulcan itself, omitting all references to additional planets beside Vulcan's sister world.
Ket-Cheleb was located close to the central star, too close in fact to support any semblance of a lifeform-supporting planetary atmosphere. Unlike other bodies in the system, Vulcan I's orbit was at a slight angle to the orbital plane. (ST reference: Star Charts)
- While Star Charts identified this as a class B geomorteus planet, the Last Unicorn RPG supplements that name the world both called it a class F planet

Both The Worlds of the Federation and Star Charts show it to be the smallest planet in the system, although it appears to be slightly smaller in Star Charts.
