Hansen's Planet (also called Hanson's World) is an inhabited planet, the first planet of three located in the Beta Hydra star system, at coordinates 0.91N 2.78E (188.8 34.9 12.6). Hansen's Planet was in the general vicinity of Betelgeuse, Bellatrix and Eden, in the Federation-Romulan Neutral Zone.

History and specifics

The planet was discovered by the ECS Bjarni Herjolfsson at some point prior to 2163. The ship's captain named it after Sven "Buttercup" Hansen, his favourite prize fighter.

In 2163, the USS Pioneer under the command of Captain Malcolm Reed surveyed the planet. (ENT - Rise of the Federation novel: A Choice of Futures)

In the 23rd century, Hansen's Planet had been placed under a quarantine status due to a 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; ST reference: Star Trek Maps)

The native beings were similar to another primitive lifeform, the Taurean anthropoid of Taurus II. The similarities were noted in a report made regarding the Taureans in 2266, when USS Enterprise Captain James T. Kirk received an update from Lieutenant Kelowitz regarding an encounter on Taurus II. (TOS episode & novelization: The Galileo Seven)

Hansen's Planet is in the general vicinity of the Veridian system, as depicted on Data's chart designed to show Jean-Luc Picard movements of the Nexus phenomenon in 2371. (TNG movie: Generations)
