The location of GRB 34 A and B on a star chart

Groombridge 34 was a binary star system consisting of the stars Groombridge 34 A and Groombridge 34 B. This system was located approximately twelve light years from Sol.

In 2364, the location of Groombridge 34 was labeled in a star chart of a stellar neighborhood with Sol at the center. This chart was stored in the USS Enterprise-D library computer. Later that year, the chart was scanned by Outpost 63. (TNG: "The Naked Now", production art; TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Background information Edit

This star system was only mentioned in writing.

This real system, which has a confirmed exoplanet, is slightly less than 12 light years away is located in the Andromeda constellation.

The star chart naming stars within twenty light years of Sol was drawn by Rick Sternbach for the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology (p. 77) in the late 1970s. This chart showed Earth commercial and exploration routes after the use of warp drive began. There were no commercial or exploration routes to Groombridge 34.

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 44) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Groombridge 34 was located in the Alpha Quadrant. This was a trinary star system of three M-class stars. In the late 24th century, it was an independent system.
