Ba'ku was an inhabited star system inside the Briar Patch, in Sector 441, a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. Ba'ku, the adopted homeworld of the Ba'ku, was located in this system. This planet was home to native species of fishes, goats, hummingbirds, llamas, and the Rhyl. (Star Trek: Insurrection)

In 2256, the location of Ba'ku was labeled on the star chart "Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview" in the ready room aboard the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")

In 2399, the location of Ba'ku was labeled in a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters. The system was in or near to Federation space. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")

This star system was only mentioned in writing.
The name of this system came from the source material used, the Star Trek: Star Charts and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library, to create the star charts seen in both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 62) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the primary of the system was a K-class star.
