The Sol Sector

Sector 001, also known as the Sol Sector or the Terran sector, was a region of space in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants. This was the central sector of the United Federation of Planets in which the Sol system was located. It bordered the Omicron, Yadalla, Antares, Vulcan, and Muratas sectors. (TNG: "Conspiracy", "The Best of Both Worlds"; DS9: "Emissary"; VOY: "Hope and Fear", "Endgame"; Star Trek: Enterprise; PRO: "Starstruck")

History

From 2161 to 3189, Federation Headquarters and Starfleet Headquarters were located in this sector. After 3189, when Earth declared its independence from the Federation, the two headquarters were relocated to another sector where they jointly shared a space station. (ENT: "Zero Hour"; DIS: "People of Earth", "Die Trying"; Star Trek: Insurrection)

Data examined the starbase ops status of the Sol Sector in late 2364, finding proof for a conspiracy among the highest ranks of Starfleet Command. (TNG: "Conspiracy" okudagram)

In 2368, in his final year at the Starfleet Medical Academy, Julian Bashir was the captain of the racquetball team. They took the sector championships this year. (DS9: "Rivals")

In 2369, this sector was named on the chart "Sector Ipai Relay Log - Relay Message Flow 1293" in Relay Station 47 Ops. The USS Zhukov was in this sector around the same time that the USS Enterprise-D visited Relay Station 47. (TNG: "Aquiel" production art)

In 2371, a microscopic singularity passed through Sector 001 and exploded. This created the conditions for an accident that sent Benjamin Sisko, Jadzia Dax, and Julian Bashir back in time to the year 2024. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

In 2372, Bashir gave Nog a PADD containing the guidebook A Cadet's Guide to Sector 001 Earth for life on Earth as a going-away present. (DS9: "Little Green Men")

The Battle of Sector 001 between the Federation and the Borg occurred in this sector in 2373. (Star Trek: First Contact).

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 the Terran sector. (PRO: "Starstruck")

In an alternate timeline caused by the death of Gabriel Bell in 2024, the USS Defiant did not detect Starfleet activity in this sector in 2371. (DS9: "Past Tense, Part I")

In the alternate 2259, this sector, located at Level 3-B, was labeled on a map of the Alpha Quadrant. Four trade lines radiated from a white pentagon in this sector. The sector was being scanned for activity. This map was in a collection of graphics and video media that were seen on a powerwall in the offices of Admirals Christopher Pike and Alexander Marcus at Starfleet Headquarters. (Star Trek Into Darkness)

The meaning of the pentagon was not defined on the map.
As the result of the two-dimensional nature of the map, it was not possible to know the region's location in relation to the Klingon Empire. The map was visible in the video "Star Trek: Into Darkness – User Interface VFX at vimeo.com. [1]
