The Vodrey Nebula was an interstellar gas cloud in the Beta Quadrant, near the Maranga and the Hatarian systems, not far from the Federation-Klingon border. In 2370, a delayed rendezvous with the USS Kearsarge allowed the Stellar Dynamics department on the USS Enterprise-D to complete a study of the Vodrey Nebula. (TNG episode: "Firstborn"; ST reference: Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library: Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385)

The nebula was later mentioned by Gorkon in the Star Trek: Vanguard novel Precipice by David Mack.
The nebula was named by Star Trek: The Next Generation screenwriters after fan William F.B. Vodrey, who had written to suggest the use of the name Kearsarge for a Starfleet vessel.
