Regulus is a real star, so some details of its characteristics as a trinary star located in the Leo constellation are derived from real-life knowledge. In the point-of-view of the Star Trek universe, the system has a large number of planets with appearances in numerous licensed works. Some of these appearances have a variety of details showing different facets of the system, including it being affiliated with both the Federation and the Romulans and its inhabitation by transplanted Humans, humanoid and felinoid colonists, and native reptilians. It is not known if these were necessarily contradictions, or if from within the POV of the Star Trek universe there was an explanation for the diversity of affiliations and inhabitants.
