The Malurian system, also known as Maluria, was a planetary system in the Beta Quadrant. This system included four inhabited planets. It contained the Malurians, a warp-capable humanoid species. In the last census before its destruction, four billion people were counted in the system. (ENT: "Civilization"; TOS: "The Changeling")

Garos, a Malurian found operating on the Akaali homeworld in 2151, claimed to have come from the system in a survey mission. (ENT: "Civilization")

In 2259, the location of Maluria was labeled on a stellar cartography chart that was seen on the USS Enterprise's ready room viewscreen. This system's symbol had a blue color, indicating that it was affiliated with the United Federation of Planets. (SNW: "Strange New Worlds", "Children of the Comet", "Spock Amok")

Prior to stardate 3541, the Federation had sent a science team, led by Dr. Manway, to the system. This team had a special transmitter for emergency situations.

In 2267, Dr. Manway sent a routine report. A week later, a distress call was sent from this system by the Malurians. The closest starship to this system, the USS Enterprise, responded to the call. It was determined, by the Enterprise, that the Malurian civilization as well as Dr. Manway's team had been destroyed by the probe Nomad, leaving the system lifeless. (TOS: "The Changeling")

In 2328, this system was home to the Malurian System Medical Station. (TNG-R: "Inheritance")

The system's location was labeled in a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters in 2399 and on the bridge of the USS Titan-A in 2401. Maluria was in or near to Federation space. (PIC: "Maps and Legends", "The Next Generation", "Disengage")

In 2401, this system's position was labeled on a star chart used by Captain William T. Riker during his attempt at finding the last known location of the SS Eleos XII. (PIC: "The Next Generation")

In 3190, the location of Maluria was labeled on a star chart used by Commander Paul Stamets for tracking the movement of the Dark Matter Anomaly through the galaxy. (DIS: "The Examples")
