The Explored Galaxy

The location of Canopus III, a sister planet, in "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Canopus Major was a planet in the Canopus planetary system. This system was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

Canopus Major appeared in the starchart Data and Picard were studying in Stellar Cartography in 2371. (Star Trek Generations, display graphic)

Canopus Major appeared twice on the starchart. Next to the identifying label, there was a number, "007".
"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Canopus III, a sister planet to Canopus Major, 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 the Alpha Quadrant. This chart, first seen chronologically in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, 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".
The star chart seen in "Generations" depicted the location of planets, stars, and star systems in the Alpha Quadrant. Based on the dimensions of the circles used to mark locations on the star chart seen in "Generations", this planet was located relatively far to the USS Enterprise-D.
