Sarpedion V pointed out

Sarpedion V was the fifth planet in the Sarpedion system, in the Alpha Quadrant.

This planet was the headquarters of the Cardassian Twelfth Order and one of the most heavily fortified positions in the Cardassian Union during the Dominion War. At that time, a direct assault by fifteen Vor'cha-class attack cruisers was considered barely able to scratch the planetary defenses.

In 2375, Chancellor Gowron suggested that it should be the Klingons' next target despite the objections of General Martok and Commander Worf. Ultimately, Sarpedion was not attacked, as Gowron was killed by Worf in ritual combat shortly thereafter. (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")

This planet's quadrant of origin is inferred based on the position of its star system as seen in the star chart appearing in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends".
The map on which Gowron pointed out the planet appeared to be a Klingon analogue to a map also seen on Federation displays. Because of this, despite the Klingon writing, the blob to the left of Sarpedion can be identified as the Badlands, and AR-558 and Starbase 375 would also appear to be close.
