Delta Vega was a class M planet located in the Vulcan system, its orbit around its star brought it close enough to the planet Vulcan that the Vulcan homeworld could be seen from the surface of Delta Vega. The planet featured an icy terrain, and was home to at least two native predatory species: the hengrauggi and the drakoulias. The planet was also the location of a largely automated Starfleet outpost.
In the Kelvin timeline created by the Narada being pulled into 2233, by 2258, the Starfleet outpost on Delta Vega was manned by Starfleet officers Keenser and Montgomery Scott. Scott considered his stationing at the outpost a punishment for an experiment with transwarp beaming that resulted in the loss of Admiral Archer's prize beagle.
