The Beta Marada system was a star system somewhere in the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrant, beyond the boundaries of the United Federation of Planets. It was believed to have once been inhabited by a race called the Darzun.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

In 2367, the deep space explorer USS Marco Polo entered the Beta Marada system, and was attacked by four unidentified defensive vessels, later theorized to be automated Darzun ships left behind after that race disappeared from the sector. The starship USS Enterprise-D responded to the Marco Polo distress call, and Commander William T. Riker was able to destroy the defense drones by drawing them into a high-gravity anomaly near the system. (TNG comic: "Thin Ice")

The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "beta" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Marada", of which Beta Marada would logically be indicated to be the second most prominent star or system.
