A pulsar is a rotating neutron star which emits detectable electromagnetic radiation, including radio waves. The radiation intensity varies with a regular period, corresponding to the star's rotation period.

The Gombara Pulsar was significant to the Chodak Empire since it was the basis of their measurements, such as the balchacks. (TNG video game: A Final Unity)

A rogue pulsar designated PSR 418-D/1015.3 passed through the Mestiko system in 2265, doing significant damage to the planet Mestiko, despite the best efforts of the Federation and the crew of the USS Enterprise. (TOS eBook: Things Fall Apart)

A pulsar nearby the Andorian's Thraz Outpost was the source of the Thraz Streamer, a flume of faster-than-light tachyons. (TOS short story: "Ambition")

In 2332, the USS Enterprise-C detected a binary star system which was made up of a pulsar and subgiant star. Because the pulsar had the strongest gravity it stole layers of gas from the subgiant. (ST short story: "Hour of Fire")
