The Crux Arm is a collection of stars, planets, nebulae, and other spatial objects that form one of many curved "arms" outshooting from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.

The Crux arm seems to extend from the center of the Beta Quadrant-Delta Quadrant border, deeper into the Delta Quadrant.

The Crux Arm was shown on a computer panel in Astrometrics on USS Voyager during the later years of its seven-year journey in the Delta Quadrant. (Background Graphic, Star Trek: Voyager)

The graphic is also shown (in legible detail) in Geoffrey Mandel's "Star Trek: Star Charts."
In present-day astronomy, the Crux Arm is known as the Scutum-Crux Arm.
