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.

In an alternate timeline, Soran succeeded and the Nexus took Soran and Jean-Luc before the entire Veridian system was annihilated by the resultant shock wave. (Star Trek Generations)

This star's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of its star system as seen in the star chart appearing in the Star Trek: Discovery episode "An Obol for Charon".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 65), Veridian was classified as a G-class star.
