The location of Carraya

The Carraya sector was a region of space in the Beta Quadrant. This sector contained the Carraya system and a section of the Romulan Neutral Zone.

In the Carraya system, the planet Carraya IV was home to a Romulan prison camp housing Klingon captives from the Khitomer Massacre.

In 2369, the YLT-3609, piloted by the Yridian Jaglom Shrek, would visit this system. The flight plan of the Yridian shuttle was later displayed on the bridge of the USS Enterprise-D. On the map of the flight plan, the location of the Carraya system was labeled. (TNG: "Birthright, Part I", "Birthright, Part II")


Background information

This sector's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of its star system as seen in the star charts appearing in the Star Trek: Discovery episode "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad" and in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends".

According to the script for "Birthright, Part I", the pronunciation for Carraya was "car-AYE-ah". [1]

On the map, it would seem that the Nequencia Alpha system was closer to the Romulan Star Empire; however, according to dialogue, it was further away from Romulan territory than the Carraya system.


Carraya was also a playable skirmish map in the game Star Trek: Tactical Assault.
