Yadalla Prime was the prime planet in its system. This planet was in the same sector as Barradas III, Calder II, and Draken IV, located near the Romulan Neutral Zone.

Yadalla Prime was the location of a Romulan archaeological site suggested as a possible raiding target for a group of mercenaries working for Arctus Baran in 2370. (TNG: "Gambit, Part I"). Starfleet Command anticipated that Baran might attack this planet so a Federation starship was sent there to intercept his ship. (TNG: "Gambit, Part II")

According to the script for "Gambit, Part I", the pronunciation for Yadalla was "yuh-DOLL-uh". [1]
Yadalla Prime was called Yonada Prime in early drafts of the episode, a reference to the worldship in TOS: "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky". The name was changed due to the need for Romulan origins for the planet. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)

It had a magnitude of +3, which was 10 times brighter than Sol. In the ancient past, about 2,000 years ago, Yadalla was a destination on the Debrune trade route.
