The location of Outpost 2

Outpost 2 was an outpost constructed on an asteroid by Starfleet in 2160. This outpost was one of seven Earth Outpost Stations located in Sector Z-6 on the Federation side of the Romulan Neutral Zone.

In 2266, the Federation lost contact with the base. It was determined, by the USS Enterprise, that the station was destroyed by an unknown vessel that was later discovered to be a Romulan Bird-of-Prey.

During the Neutral Zone Incursion, the location of Outpost 2 was labeled on a map of Sector Z-6 that was displayed on the bridge viewscreen of the USS Enterprise. (TOS: "Balance of Terror", production art)

Between 2266 and 2366, this outpost had been rebuilt. In 2366, Outpost 2 was warned by Starfleet about an alleged Romulan base on Nelvana III. (TNG: "The Defector")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 66) and the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Outpost 2 was located in the Beta Quadrant.
In the Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 66), the location of 23 Earth outposts were depicted on a map of the Beta Quadrant. Outposts 1 to 8 were mentioned in dialogue or were seen on the Z-6 Sector map in "Balance of Terror" and Outpost 23 was mentioned in dialogue in "Future Imperfect". Outpost 2 was constructed in an area of space that been contested over during the Romulan War Theater of Operations (2156-2160).
