The location of Antares on the tactical situation monitor

Beta Antares IV was the inhabited fourth planet in the Beta Antares system. Beta Antares was the secondary in the Antares system. This system was located in the Antares sector, (VOY: "Message in a Bottle" dedication plaque) a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. (TNG: "The Wounded" display graphic)

Captain James T. Kirk stated this planet was the origin of fizzbin, a card game with absurdly complicated rules, which he invented while being trapped on Sigma Iotia II. Spock was familiar with the culture of Beta Antares IV and started to explain that there was no such game there, but was stopped short by Kirk. (TOS: "A Piece of the Action")

The Beta Antares Ship Yards were located in the same system as this planet. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle" dedication plaque)

The tactical situation monitor seen in "Yesterday's Enterprise" and "The Wounded" depicted Antares in the same region of space as the Altair system and Janus VI. According to "The Explored Galaxy" star chart, this region of space was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both were identified in DS9: "Call to Arms" as being located in the Alpha Quadrant.
According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets I", "United Federation of Planets II"), Beta Antares IV was located in the Antares system. This planet was located in non-aligned space. In 2378, Beta Antares IV was a Federation member.
