Veridian was the primary of the Veridian star system, in the Beta Quadrant, and was located not far from Amargosa. The star was able to sustain life, as the fourth planet in the Veridian system was host to a pre-industrial sentient species.
In 2371, Dr. Tolian Soran tried to collapse the star using his trilithium weapon: the solar probe, which would have changed the course of the Nexus ribbon to intersect Veridian III. However, he was prevented from doing so by Captains Jean-Luc Picard and James T. Kirk.
