AFAIK never used in canon.

  Beta Niobe's sun went nova while the Enterprise observed, dooming its only satellite Sarpeidon, an inhabited class-M planet with an advanced civilization. (TOS "All Our Yesterdays")

  Minara entered a critical stage prior to going nova in 2268, threatening the several inhabited worlds of the Minaran star system. Periods of intense solar flare activity were accompanied by earthquakes on Minara II. (TOS "The Empath")

 Starfleet's long-range Vega IX probe discovered "Tin Man" orbiting Beta Stromgren shortly before that star went nova in 2368. (TNG "Tin Man")]  

  "In the year 2387, the galaxy is threatened by an unusually volatile supernova. Ambassador Spock pilots a ship carrying "red matter", intending to create an artificial black hole to consume the supernova. Before Spock completes his mission, the supernova destroys the planet Romulus."
