Gaia, the current home of the Syreen, lies in a star system at the edge of Ur-Quan space closest to Earth. Known formally as Betelgeuse I, it was given to the Syreen as a suitable planet in which to be slave-shielded after their defeat at the hands of the Ur-Quan Hierarchy. When the Syreen explained to the Ur-Quan that their original homeworld, Syra, had been destroyed and described its former beauty, the Ur-Quan searched their extensive planetary database and offered the choice of two Water Worlds: Gaia or Organon.

A Hierarchy starbase under the command of Talana orbits the planet.
