    Suspect this is a gas cloud coalescing into a star, not a galaxy.

    looks like a globular cluster to me. Confirmed by NED, and with similar blueshift to the Andromeda Galaxy

    According to NED and Simbad it is a globular cluster (BOL 302). So it still consists of a lot of individual stars.

    Simbad contradicts itself by also identifying as as G1C - Galaxy in cluster. Mistaken identification?

    Well the center of the cluster does indeed look galaxy-like.
