The Explored Galaxy

The location of Gamma Trianguli on "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Gamma Trianguli was the primary of the Gamma Trianguli system. This star was located in the Gamma Trianguli sector, which was a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. The location of Gamma Trianguli in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. A planet in this system, Gamma Trianguli VI, was inhabited by the Vaalians, a pre-warp capable humanoid species. (TOS: "The Apple"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; ENT: "In a Mirror, Darkly, Part II", display graphic)

The atmosphere of the sixth planet, which was controlled by Vaal, filtered out any harmful effects from the star. The indigenous people of that planet believed that Vaal controlled their sun. (TOS: "The Apple")

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Gamma Trianguli was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "The Search, Part II", "Call to Arms" as being located in this quadrant. The chart was also seen in several Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes set in the 24th century, from the year 2364 to 2370. These were TNG: "Conspiracy", "The Measure Of A Man", "The Emissary", "The Mind's Eye", "The Game", and DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 37), the Gamma Trianguli system was located in or near Federation space, in the Alpha Quadrant. This system was a single star system. Gamma Trianguli was an A-class star with a magnitude of +3, which was ten times brighter than Sol.
