Beta Lyrae was the primary of the Beta Lyrae system, located 142° NE of the galactic plane. Beta Lyrae was known as one of the rare beautiful spectacles of the galaxy and almost every starship that passed by stop to see it. Beta Lyrae was located between Kzin and Starbase 25. (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon") This star was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was also depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)


In 2269, the shuttlecraft Copernicus of the USS Enterprise was transporting a Slaver stasis box to Starbase 25 and passed by Beta Lyrae. Kzinti privateers lured the shuttle to a small ice-bound planet located in the star system, using another stasis box as bait. (TAS: "The Slaver Weapon")

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Beta Lyrae was located between the Tholian Assembly and Romulus. Both locations were identified in DS9: "The Search, Part II", "Call to Arms" as being located in this quadrant. The chart was also seen in several Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes set in the 24th century, from the year 2364 to 2370. These were TNG: "Conspiracy", "The Measure Of A Man", "The Emissary", "The Mind's Eye", "The Game", and DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians".
