A ringed planet within the Mutara sector

The Mutara sector was a region of Federation space in the Beta Quadrant. It bordered the Tango and Zalkon sectors. The Genesis sector, an area of space within this sector, consisted of the planet Genesis that was created when the Genesis Device exploded inside the Mutara Nebula.

In 2257, Spock's shuttle disappeared in the Mutara sector after leaving Starbase 5. (DIS: "Light and Shadows")

In 2285, Khan Noonien Singh, aboard the hijacked USS Reliant detonated the Genesis Device within the Mutara Nebula, creating the Genesis planet. As a result of the incident, travel in and out of the sector was restricted by Starfleet. Additional permits were required, making commercial and non-military travel more difficult and more expensive. (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Star Trek III: The Search for Spock)

In the 2380s, a section of the holographic map of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, displayed to the former prisoners of Tars Lamora aboard the USS Protostar, was labeled as this sector. (PRO: "Starstruck")

This sector's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of Spock's last known position as seen in the star chart appearing in the Star Trek: Discovery episode "An Obol for Charon".
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, the SS Botany Bay was either discovered by the USS Enterprise at a position near this sector (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 98) or in this sector (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 60).
In the episode "Twilight", it was stated that Rigelian flamegems were illegal in a region. This region was identified as this sector by the Encyclopedia. (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 60)
