The location of Barnard's Star on a star chart

Barnard's Star was a star located approximately six light years from Sol.

In 2364, the location of Barnard's Star was labeled in a star chart of a stellar neighborhood with Sol at the center. This chart was stored in the USS Enterprise-D library computer. Later that year, the chart was scanned by Outpost 63. (TNG: "The Naked Now", production art; TNG: "The Last Outpost")

The star chart was drawn by Rick Sternbach for the reference book Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology in the late 1970s. Found on page 77, this chart showed Earth commercial and exploration routes after the use of warp drive began. Barnard's Star was a destination on an exploration route.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (page 44), Barnard's Star was located in the Alpha Quadrant and was a binary star system. Barnard's Star A was a Class M star with a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 as bright as Sol. Barnard's Star B was a Class M star.
