|Associated bodies:||10 planets, numerous moons|
Sol is a yellow dwarf star located in the Sol system on the Alpha Quadrant/Beta Quadrant border, and is orbited by eight planets and various planetoids, asteroids and other celestial bodies. The star was born five billion years ago. (ST roleplay module: All Our Yesterdays: The Time Travel Sourcebook)
The USS Enterprise used the slingshot effect around Sol to travel back to the 23rd century after she was sent back in time to the 1960s when it was dragged into the gravity well of a black star. (TOS episode: "Tomorrow is Yesterday")
In 2285, Admiral James T. Kirk and his crew used the Klingon Bird-of-Prey, HMS Bounty, to sling-shot around Sol so that they could travel back to 1986 and bring two humpback whales forward in time to save Earth from the Cetacean Probe. (TOS movie: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home).

|Notable facts:||Humanity's home system|
Sol, (Latin for sun) also known simply as the Sun, is the star of the Sol System. It is an average sized star in its main sequence phase, and is the dominant source of light for Earth. According to current definitions, eight planets and five dwarfs planets orbit it, for a total of 13, including the four inner terrestrial planets and the four gas giants, separated by an asteroid belt. Many smaller planetoids also orbit Sol, and many of the systems planets possess moons of varying size and number, such as Earth's satellite, Luna.
Star system within the Milky Way Galaxy that consists of the Sun, planets, an asteroid belt, and small bodies such as asteroids, comets, meteoroids, and interplanetary dust. The Solar System houses eight planets (including Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) and their 166 moons; as well as three drawf planets (Pluto, Ceres, and Eris), and one Star (Sol).
|Chronological and political information|
Sol accompanied Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker on a diplomatic mission to the planet Jabiim. After the team was thrust into the middle of a Battle between the Galactic Empire and the local resistance, Sol was separated from the team and captured by Imperials with the help of the traitor Tal Hesz.
After this, Sol was taken to the planet Kalist VI, where he was tortured and interrogated as to the whereabouts of the Rebel fleet and Skywalker. During a daring covert operation, a rebel team was able to rescue Sol and the enslaved population of Jabiim. Unknown to the Rebellion, Jorin Sol had been reprogrammed as an Imperial spy, and was now in the midst of the rebel fleet with a special mission: "Destroy the Rebellion from the inside." He began to suffer from periods of spontaneousness in which he would carry out the Empire's plans while being still fully conscious about what he was doing, which caused an unending internal conflict.
After being cleared to return to duty, Sol walked onto his ship's bridge and shot everyone, including Leia Organa. He collapsed in horror and told Luke Skywalker that the Empire was on its way. While Janek Sunber dealt with Luke, Jorin pleaded with Tungo Li to get the rebel fleet to run. He then saved him from near death. When Wedge Antilles called the command ship to jump, Jorin jumped down to get to the command console and successfully made a jump to hyperspace, albeit on fire, before losing his life in the process in an explosion seconds later.
The Sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees. Humans like to call their star "the Sun," but the word "sun" can also apply to any star with a planetary system. Such systems are typically composed of planets, asteroids, and giant eggs that look like asteroids.
Since Transformers typically spend their time on planets, suns are much more common in their adventures than bare stars.
Properly called "Sol," this sun is a frequent target of the Decepticons, who seek to utilize it in various ways, such as tapping into its power, hurling things such as Autobots or the planet Earth into it, or just plain blowing it to smithereens. The Autobots usually stop them in time, but it's almost always a close call.
