The Orion system was an inhabited planetary system. The primary was named Orion. This system was the home of the Orion civilization. The system was located in the Orion sector, which was a region of space in the Alpha Quadrant. Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. There were two known planets in this system that supported life: Orion I and Orion III. (TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?": TAS: "Yesteryear"; Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art; VOY: "Good Shepherd")

The planet Orion might be Orion I, Orion III, or another planet in this system not identified in the canon.
"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Orion 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. This star 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".
According to Star Trek: Star Charts, on page 36, this system was, also, named Pi 3 Orionis. This trinary star system was located in the Beta Quadrant.
