The Vega system was an inhabited planetary system around the star Vega. It contained Vega IX and Vega colony, which by the early 22nd century was one the first Human deep-space colonies. (ENT: "Broken Bow"; TOS: "The Cage", "Mirror, Mirror"; VOY: "Child's Play")

In 2126, Travis Mayweather (later of the Enterprise NX-01) was born aboard the ECS Horizon half way between the Vega Colony and Draylax. (ENT: "Broken Bow")

Prior to 2151, Earth ships had been operating within ninety light years of the Sol system. In that year, the Enterprise became the first ship to travel further than this distance. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights")

In 2152, Starfleet Admiral Maxwell Forrest speculated that a mysterious Human vessel recovered in deep space could have been launched from Vega colony, despite the fact that Vega was "a long way behind you". The vessel was later determined to be a time travel pod from the 31st century. (ENT: "Future Tense")

In 2254, the USS Enterprise planned to make use of the medical facilities at the Vega colony to take care of the crew injured on Rigel VII and replace the personnel who needed hospitalization. (TOS: "The Cage")

The location of the Vega system was seen on a Federation star chart displayed in astrometrics on the USS Voyager in 2376. The system was shown in relation to Pollux IV, Jouret IV, Rigel, and Organia. (VOY: "Child's Play")
