Gasko was an A class blue-white star and associated star system in Romulan Star Empire space. It was located in the Narendra sector of Tau Dewa sector block in the Beta Quadrant. (ST reference: Star Charts; ST video game: Star Trek Online)
In the late 22nd century the Gasko system was hotly contested by the Romulans and the Klingon Empire. The Romulans built a space station their to solidify their claim and maintained a small fleet there for the next half-century. Its strategic importance waned after the Klingons allied with the Federation and the Romulans abandoned the station. (ST video game: Star Trek Online [tooltip])
The Gasko system was visible from Space Station KR-3. In the year 2311, Elias Vaughn stood in front of a viewport on the space station and tested his memory, naming all the major stars he could see in Romulan space. (ST - The Lost Era novel: Serpents Among the Ruins)
