Crossing the Glintara sector (red arrows) to reach Romulus (Romulan logo)

The Glintara sector was a region of space in the Romulan Star Empire, located between the Cardassian-Romulan border and Romulus.

In the forged holo-recording created by Grathon Tolar in 2374, the planned Dominion invasion of Romulan space involved the advance of the 23rd Jem'Hadar Division through the Glintara sector, with the Cardassian Fourth Order protecting their flank. The holographic Weyoun predicted that the division would land on Romulus the following day. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")


Background information

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 66) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Stellar Cartography", pp. 32-33; "Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), the Glintara sector (Sector 31) was located in the Beta Quadrant. Within this sector, there was a star system named Glintara, which this sector might possibly be named after. This was a binary system with a pair of K-class stars.

According to a map of the Romulan Empire – prepared by the Stellar Archivist Lsel Essik, from the Romulan Master Data Catalog, in 2366 – Glintara was identified as a Romulan system.

In the DS9 novel Hollow Men, Elim Garak claims that the Glintara sector had been the site of a covert base operated by the Fourth Order since the 2350s.
