Beta Hydra (also known as Beta Hydrae or 28 Crateris) was a star system, located in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant at coordinates 0.91N 2.78E, in the space visible from Earth in the constellation of Hydra, 310 light years distant. This system had previously been noted in Human astronomy as part of the Crater constellation before it was assigned a name as part of Hydra.
History and specifics
The Beta Hydra system's orbit was the location of a planetary system, including Hanson's World, where researchers from the United Federation of Planets discovered lifeforms. By the 23rd century, Hanson's World had been placed under a quarantine status due to the primitive native civilization of Homo Hansonii. By reference stardate 2/2306, the world had a population of 200 million individuals. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)
- In real astronomy, the proper name of the beta star in Hydra would be formed as the genitive "Beta Hydrae".
