Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview
The Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview star chart was first seen in 2256, in Captain Lorca's quarters aboard the USS Discovery, as well as at Lieutenant Rhys's station on the bridge. It displayed the location of the Discovery near the Federation-Klingon border during the Federation-Klingon War of that year.
It shows the locations of the Alpha Quadrant systems Aldebaran (Alpha Tauri), Amar, Andoria, Azha (Eta Eridani), Ba'ku, Beta Leonis Minoris (Beta XII-A), Beta Rigel, Castor (Alpha Geminorum), Coridan (Chi 1 Orionis), Deneva (Kappa Fornacis), Elora, Orion, Organia, Pollux (Beta Geminorum), Risa (Epsilon Ceti), Son'a, Tarlac, Tellun (Elas Troyius), Vulcan, Zibal (Zeta Eridani), and 11 Leonis Minoris, as well as the Briar Patch, Sherman's Planet, and Starbase 12 (Gamma 400). Amar, Organia, and Sherman's Planet are indicated to have been Klingon Empire territory at the time.
Beta Quadrant systems on the Federation side of the border include Acamar (Theta Eridani), Adelphous, Ajilon (Tananda Bay), Alpha Onias, Barolia (Wazn, Beta Columbae), Beta Pictoris, Carraya, Celes (Tau Hydrae), Chi Leonis, Galorndon Core, Gamma Hromi, Hyralan (Alpha Caeli), Japori (Beta Caeli), Jouret (New Providence), Miridian, Omega Leonis, Ramatis, Regulus (Alpha Leonis), Tomed, Unroth, Xarantine (Zeta Leporis), and Yridia. Landmarks on the Federation side include the Azure Nebula, Deep Space Station K-7, the Hromi Cluster, the Paulson Nebula, Starbase 23, Starbase 24, Starbase 157, Starbase 234, and Starbase 343.
Beta Quadrant systems on the Klingon Empire side of the border include Archanis, Archer, Ardana (Rasalas, Mu Leonis), B'Moth, Balduk, Beta Lankal, Beta Penthe (as Rura Penthe), Beta Thoridor, Brestant (Delta Laporis), Cursa (Beta Eridani), D'deridex, Dewa, Dinasia, Gamma Eridon, Ganalda, Gasko, Gorath, H'atoria, Halee, Iccobar, Iconia, Ikalia, K't'inga, Khitomer, Klach D'kel Brakt, Korvat (Pi Canis Majoris), Krios, Lambda Geminorum, Mempa, Morska, Narendra, Nequencia, No'Mat (Omicron Leonis), Pheben, Praxis, Qo'noS (Kronos, Kling), Qu'Vat, Tranome Sar, and Valt. The star Archanis is right on the border, while Gasko and Korvat are shown as being under Klingon control, but on the Federation side of the border. Archanis and Korvat are on the Klingon side of the thinner dotted line, however.
This Beta quadrant star chart focused on the regions of the Hromi Cluster, the Archanis sector, the Briar Patch and the Paulson Nebula. It was on Gen Rhys's display while the USS Discovery jumped out of Klingon space while saving Captain Gabriel Lorca. (DIS: "Choose Your Pain")
Commander-in-Chief's office, 2399
In 2399, Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy had an Alpha / Beta Quadrant overview star chart depicting local galactic powers displayed on her wall when Jean-Luc Picard came to see her. Entities depicted included the Talarian Republic, the Cardassian Union, the Romulan Free State, the Ferengi Alliance, and the Klingon Empire.
Each square on the map was just over 15 light years across, according to notation on the chart. The chart was over 345 light years across and over 195 light years top-to-bottom. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")
"The Explored Galaxy"
The star chart of the explored space in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants depicted the home systems of the three great powers in the quadrant – the Federation, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire. Along with these systems, the home systems of several less significant powers – the Tholian Assembly, the First Federation, and the Kzinti – were, also, depicted on the chart. Many of the locations on this map were visited by the USS Enterprise during its historic five-year mission of the late 2260s. Developments in the 24th century, such as the expansion of the great powers into uncharted and charted space, reduced this chart to a historical relic by the 2370s.
The chart was also seen frequently in the 24th century in various locations. In 2364, the chart was displayed at Starfleet Headquarters in the room where Dexter Remmick, possessed by parasitic beings, was killed after sending a homing beacon. (TNG: "Conspiracy") In 2365, the chart was seen in the court room on Starbase 173 (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man") and the tactical room aboard the USS Enterprise-D, close to another map that depicted the whole Milky Way Galaxy. (TNG: "The Emissary") In 2367, the chart was seen in the tactical laboratory of Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Mind's Eye") In 2368, in the ship's engineering laboratory. (TNG: "The Game") In 2369 and 2370, the chart was seen in the classroom aboard Deep Space 9, featuring the heading "The Explored Galaxy". (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians")
