The location of Gamma Hydra on a tactical intelligence analysis

Gamma Hydra was the primary of its star system. Located near both the Federation-Klingon border and the Romulan Neutral Zone, this star fell within the administrative area of Starbase 10. Additionally, the star was located six light years from a binary star system, where, in 2256, the first battle of the Federation-Klingon War occurred. (TOS: "The Deadly Years"; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; DIS: "The Vulcan Hello")

By 2256, an Andorian colony had been established in this system. It was considered vulnerable to Klingon attack should the USS Shenzhou fail to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff with the Sarcophagus prior to the Battle of the Binary Stars. (DIS: "The Vulcan Hello")

In the mid-23rd century, a Federation experimental colony was founded on Gamma Hydra IV. In 2267, a rogue comet intersected with the orbital path of Gamma Hydra IV. As the trail of the comet passed near the planet, the planet was irradiated by with residue left behind by the comet. This radiation affected the colony, resulting in a total loss of life. (TOS: "The Deadly Years")

In 2285, in the Kobayashi Maru exam, the USS Enterprise was on a training mission to Gamma Hydra. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

In 2366, the location of Gamma Hydra was labeled on a tactical intelligence analysis star chart. (TNG: "The Defector" okudagram)

In 2366, in an alternate timeline, during the Federation-Klingon War, the location of Gamma Hydra was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in the ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise" okudagram)

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 296) named the star system as Gamma Hydra.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 56, "United Federation of Planets II") and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Gamma Hydra (spelled as "Gamma Hydrae" in these reference works) was a G-class star in the Beta Quadrant. The star's system was a destination on the major space lanes.
