Ganymede was the largest moon of Jupiter, the fifth planet of the Sol system.

In the 23rd century, this moon was inhabited. In 2368, Montgomery Scott of the Federation starship USS Enterprise mentioned a mysterious "green drink" he found on Ganymede, and later shared with the Kelvan Tomar. (TOS: "By Any Other Name")

In early 2366, a painting of Ganymede's surface was displayed on a wall in the observation lounge of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command")

The painting was done by Rick Sternbach for a book cover. It originally included Jupiter. [1]
Ganymede was mentioned in the reference book Starfleet Medical Reference Manual (pp. 14, 19) as the place where a cancer-inhibiting plant compound was discovered. Topaline was also first discovered by Humans on the moon in 2021.
