The Orias system was a planetary system in Cardassian space with one uninhabited M-class planet.

In 2371, Starfleet Intelligence believed that the Cardassians were secretly building a fleet in the Orias system, without the knowledge of the Central Command. The Maquis feared that this build-up was a prelude to a new offensive in the Demilitarized Zone, and so Thomas Riker stole the USS Defiant to investigate. He was prevented from entering the system by several Template:ShipClass warships fielded by the Obsidian Order, though he did provide the Central Command with scans of the system in exchange for clemency. (DS9: "Defiant")

It eventually emerged that the Obsidian Order was building the fleet in preparation for a joint operation with the Tal Shiar to destroy the Founders in the Gamma Quadrant. (DS9: "Improbable Cause")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 46, the Orias system was a binary star system. The primary was a Class M Star, and the secondary was a Class K Star. Magnitude of this star was +1, which was 100 times brighter than Sol. This system was in the Alpha Quadrant.
