The homeworld of the Betazoid race, a UFP member, is Earth-like in appearance with large blue oceans. It is within a standard shuttlecraft's range of Starbase G-6. It hosted a biennial trade conference circa stardate 43930, when Counselor Deanna Troi, her mother, Betazed Ambassador Lwaxana Troi, and Commander Riker were abducted by the Ferengi from one of its large parklands. The Trois lived there near Lake El-Nar until Kestra, Deanna's older sister, died. Mr. Homn, Lwaxana's personal assistant, resides there when not accompanying her. Troi says Angel I's government reminds her of Betazed's; it is not clear whether she meant the constitutional oligarchy or its matriarchal social structure.
