The Vega system was an inhabited planetary system. The primary was named Vega. A planet in this system, Vega IX, was the site of an Earth colony. This colony, named the Vega colony, was established on this planet prior to 2126. This system, located within 90 light years of the Sol system, was in the Alpha Quadrant. (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")

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")

In an alternate timeline, Vega colony in the system was wiped out by the Xindi following the destruction of Earth in 2154. (ENT: "Twilight")

This system had a parallel counterpart in the mirror universe. Prior to 2267, in the mirror universe, Captain James Kirk had 5,000 colonists on Vega IX executed. (TOS: "Mirror, Mirror")


Prior to 2151, Earth ships had been operating within 90 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")

Star Trek: Star Charts

The Vega system was located in or near Federation space, in the Alpha Quadrant. This system, also known as Alpha Lyrae, was a single star system. Primary was a Class A star with a magnitude of +3, which was ten times the brightness of Sol. In the mid-22nd century, this system was a destination on the Earth trade routes. In the late 24th century, this system was a destination on the major space lanes. (pgs. 36, 44)


In the 1977 children's storybook The Prisoner of Vega, Klingons capture Queen Vanadala of Vega III and take over her planet.

In the game Star Trek Online, released in 2010, the Vega system was the site of a renewed Borg attack in 2409, and where the tutorial takes place.
