The El-Adrel system was a neutral planetary system that was located halfway between the United Federation of Planets and the Tamarian space. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. The fourth planet, El-Adrel IV, was the home of a non-sentient species. Prior to 2368, according to Federation records, the entire system was uninhabited.

In 2368, a Tamarian deep space cruiser commanded by Captain Dathon chose this system to attempt communication with the Federation. He chose the fourth planet because the opportunity of working together with a Starfleet captain in defeating a member of this species offered a parallel with a story in their mythology. The USS Enterprise-D was sent to answer their signal. (TNG: "Darmok")

El-Adrel IV, a planet in this system, was on a star chart that was seen in Star Trek Generations. The chart depicted the location of planets, stars, and star systems in the Alpha Quadrant. Based on the dimensions of the circles used to mark locations on the star chart seen in "Generations", this planet was located relatively far to the USS Enterprise-D.
