Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview

Beta Lankal was a star system in Klingon space, in the Beta Quadrant. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain")

In 2256, the system's location 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", "The War Without, The War Within")

A year later, the system's location was labeled on the star chart showing the trajectory of Lieutenant Spock's shuttle. (DIS: "An Obol for Charon")

In 2259, the location of this system was labeled on a stellar cartography chart that was seen on the USS Enterprise's ready room viewscreen. This system's symbol was a red Klingon Empire logo, indicating its affiliation with the empire. (SNW: "Strange New Worlds")

After the forces loyal to Gowron had suffered a major defeat in the Mempa sector during the Klingon Civil War, they were forced into a full-scale retreat and had to regroup near Beta Lankal. (TNG: "Redemption II")

In 2399, the system's location was labeled on a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")

According to the script, the pronunciation for Beta Lankal was "bay-tah lan-KAL". [1]
This location was identified as a system in the Star Trek: Star Charts and in the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library. This source material was used to create the star charts seen in both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard. According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 63) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 27, 30; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the primary of the Beta Lankal system was a F-class star. According to a map of the Klingon Empire – prepared by the Scribe K'Tark for the Klingon High Council in the Year of Kahless 893 (2266) – Beta Lankal was identified as a Klingon system.
