Gamma Eridon was a star in Klingon space, located between the Klingon-Romulan border and the inner worlds of the Klingon Empire. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

In 2368, Jean-Luc Picard's blockade armada retreated to this location to regroup, following the disabling of their tachyon detection grid, seeking to establish a new grid. However, this proved unnecessary as the USS Sutherland detected the Romulan forces by another method. (TNG: "Redemption II")

Gamma Eridon appeared in the starchart Data and Picard were studying in Stellar Cartography in 2371. (Star Trek Generations, display graphic)
