The location of Beta Portolan on "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Beta Portolan was the primary of the Beta Portolan planetary system. The system was located in the Alpha Quadrant. Its location in the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted on a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)

Neural parasites destroyed the civilizations inhabiting its planets long ago. In the mid-23rd century, Federation archaeologists believed these civilizations were the parasites' first victims. Spock's theory that the parasites originated in a place where normal physical laws did not apply suggested that the parasites did not originate on this world, but came there from somewhere else. (TOS: "Operation -- Annihilate!")

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Beta Portolan 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. The 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".
