Background information Edit

Expeditions from Sol System, 2123–2190
Original okudagram mentioning Alderaan

The name of this planet originally also appeared in "Up The Long Ladder", on an Okudagram on Picard's desk monitor as the destination of HMS New Zealand in 2135. A legible version of the original okudagram appeared in the reference book, Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Continuing Mission. In the remastered version of the episode, the planet was renamed as Aldebaran. The reference to this planet, as well as the wording of several Okudagrams, was an in-joke. Alderaan was, of course, the adopted homeworld of Star Wars's Princess Leia, who claimed to be on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan when captured by Darth Vader in the opening scene of Star Wars.

According to ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights", prior to 2151, Earth ships had been operating within 90 light years of the Sol system. In that year, the Enterprise became the first ship to travel further than this distance. If the reference had been kept in "Up The Long Ladder", with the mission to this world in 2135, Alderaan would presumably be located within this range of Earth.

According to the reference book "Star Trek Chronology", in the "A" section of the locations index, this planet was listed as, "Never visited by the crew of the USS Enterprise-D."
