The Coridan system was an inhabited planetary system in the Alpha Quadrant. This system consisted of the primary Coridan and the inhabited planet Coridan. This was the homeworld for the Coridanites, a warp-capable humanoid species. Other planets in this system were colonized by this species prior to 2151.

In 2151, Captain Archer and T'Pol visited Coridan, were captured by rebels, and were freed by Andorian agents, including Thy'lek Shran. (ENT: "Shadows of P'Jem").

In 2257, during the first Federation-Klingon War, this system was occupied by the Klingons. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

In 2259, the location of this system was labeled on a stellar cartography chart that was seen on the USS Enterprise's ready room viewscreen. This system's symbol had a blue color, indicating that it was affiliated with the United Federation of Planets. (SNW: "Strange New Worlds", "Spock Amok")

Prior to the Babel Conference of 2268, the Coridan system was claimed by some Federation races, and there were reports by Starfleet Intelligence that Orion smugglers had been raiding the system. After the conference, the Coridan planets were admitted to the United Federation of Planets. The system was located near to the planets Orion and Vulcan, and several unidentified neutral worlds. (TOS: "Journey to Babel"; DS9: "In the Cards"; ENT: "Demons")

In 2373, Kandra Vilk moved from Deep Space 9 to a neutral planet near the Coridan system because of the impending war with the Dominion. (DS9: "In the Cards")

The Coridan system was a target of Jem'Hadar raids during the Dominion War due to its importance as a source of dilithium, even though it was not on the front lines. (DS9: "One Little Ship")

The system's location was labeled in a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters in 2399 and on the bridge of the USS Titan-A in 2401. The Coridan system was in or near to Federation space. (PIC: "Maps and Legends", "The Next Generation", "Disengage")

In 2401, this system's position was labeled on a star chart used by Captain William T. Riker during his attempt at finding the last known location of the SS Eleos XII. (PIC: "The Next Generation")

"CORE-ah-don" was the pronunciation for this system's name from the script pronunciation guide for "Sarek". [1]

In a deleted scene from Star Trek Into Darkness, a news feed announced that Magustav Pachangara became the new chancellor of Coridan. This information appeared on a powerwall in the office of Admiral Alexander Marcus. [2]
