Draylax was an inhabited planet. This was the homeworld of the Draylaxians. The planet was located within 90 light years of the Sol system. This planet was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

It was located on the 22nd century trade routes of the Earth Cargo Service, for example it was one end of the Draylax-Vega-run.

The Enterprise's helmsman, Ensign Travis Mayweather, visited Draylax once aboard his family's cargo hauler, the ECS Horizon. He confirmed surreptitiously that Draylaxian women were endowed with "three...", and claimed to have had "firsthand, secondhand, and thirdhand" experience. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

A popular alcoholic beverage from the planet was Draylaxian whiskey, considered "one of the galaxy's real pleasures" by Captain Keene. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")

In 2152, Trip Tucker used Draylax in a geography game that Jonathan Archer forced him to play in order to keep Trip awake while they awaited rescue on the Torothan homeworld. (ENT: "Desert Crossing")

In a scene deleted from "Fight or Flight", Ensign Travis Mayweather also referenced Draylax in a similar game he played with Archer. Mayweather and Archer actually used the same locations as Tucker and Archer later.
According to Archer, in the year 2151, the farthest that humans had traveled from Earth was 90 light years. Draylax was visited by humans prior to this year. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (pgs. 45, 66), Draylax was located in the Epsilon Indi star system. The Epsilon Indi system was located in or near Federation space, in the Beta Quadrant. This was a single star system. Primary was a Class K star with a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 as bright as Sol. This system was a destination on the Earth trade routes. Draylax was an United Federation of Planets member in 2378.
