Hamal, also known as Alpha Arietis or 13 Arietis, was a star with an associated star system, located somewhere in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants. The name also bears an ancient name, El Nath, and has been named by the Romulan civilization as Orundwiir.

DetailsEdit

This K class star system was visible from Earth in the Sol system, some 65 light years distant, in the constellation of Aries. This system was within boundaries of territory claimed by the United Federation of Planets. The Hamal system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including fourth planet Hamal IV, a Federation member world and the homeworld of the Hamalki. It is also the site of the fortified Starbase 18 orbital facility. The Hamal planetary system is located in Arietis space, near the strategically important Triangulum sector on the Federation's border with the Romulan Star Empire. (TOS - Rihannsu novels: The Wounded Sky, Swordhunt)

Since Alpha Arietis is a "real" star system, modern scientists know a few things about its distance and makeup that were not in Star Trek. Since this star has also been called El Nath, it seems like the USS El Nath might be its namesake.
