The Pleiades

The Pleiades Cluster was a star cluster. The planet Velara III was located in this cluster. (TNG: "Home Soil")

An image appearing to be this cluster was contained in the Enterprise computer in 2254, when the Talosians scanned the recordings of the USS Enterprise. (TOS: "The Cage")

On stardate 41463.9, the USS Enterprise-D was mapping the cluster. During the mission, the Enterprise was asked by the Federation to visit terraformers on Velara III. Soon after resolving a conflict with microbrain, the lifeform native to Velara III, the Enterprise returned to an unnamed starbase with the surviving terraformers. (TNG: "Home Soil")

While on a date, on a holographic recreation of Mars, with Danara Pel, The Doctor pointed out the Pleiades Cluster as among the many star formations and astronomical highlights seen from Mars. (VOY: "Lifesigns")

According to the Star Trek: Star Charts ("United Federation of Planets II"), the Pleiades Cluster was located in non-aligned space, in the Alpha Quadrant.
An unused image of the Talos IV surface prepared for "The Cage" showed the Pleiades very prominently in the Talos sky, the brightest stars enlarged to the size of suns. [1]
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 379}, the Pleiades, also known as M45 or the Seven Sisters, was a region of space with young planets. It was a "cluster of about 400 stars in a 25-light-year radius, some 415 light years from Earth."
