The Federation star chart of "The Explored Galaxy" was first seen in 2293, in Captain Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The chart was also seen frequently in the 24th century in various locations. In 2364, the chart was displayed at Starfleet Headquarters in the room where Dexter Remmick, possessed by Neural parasites, was killed after sending a homing beacon. (TNG: "Conspiracy") In 2365, the chart was seen in the court room on Starbase 173 (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man") and the tactical room aboard the Enterprise-D, close to another map that depicted the whole Milky Way Galaxy. (TNG: "The Emissary") In 2367, the chart was seen in the tactical laboratory of Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Mind's Eye") In 2368, in the ship's engineering laboratory. (TNG: "The Game") In 2369 and 2370, the chart was seen in the classroom aboard Deep Space 9, featuring the heading "The Explored Galaxy". (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians")

The chart was created by the art department originally for "Conspiracy" and it had various locations labeled, including many TOS and TAS homages. In several episodes, most notably in DS9: "Call to Arms", the Romulans and the Tholians were identified as Alpha Quadrant powers, suggesting that most if not all of the planets and systems in this chart are located in the Alpha Quadrant.
The chart was used as a basis for the board game Star Trek Catan: Federation Space expansion set. [1] [2]
