The location of Barnard's Star on a star chart

Barnard's Star was a star located approximately six light years from Sol. It was named after Barnard.

In 2364, the location of Barnard's Star was labeled in a star chart of a stellar neighborhood with Sol at the center. This chart was stored in the USS Enterprise-D library computer. Later that year, the chart was scanned by Outpost 63. (TNG: "The Naked Now", production art; TNG: "The Last Outpost")

This star was only mentioned in writing.
The star chart was drawn by Rick Sternbach for the reference book Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology (p. 77) in the late 1970s. This chart showed Earth commercial and exploration routes after the use of warp drive began. Barnard's Star was a destination on an exploration route.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 44) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Barnard's Star star system – a system of two M-class stars – was located in the Alpha Quadrant.
