The Explored Galaxy

The location of Deneb in "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart

Deneb was the primary of the inhabited Deneb system. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before") Its location in the Alpha Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy was depicted in a Federation star chart in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, production art)

"The Explored Galaxy" was a map of charted space in the Alpha Quadrant. Deneb 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. This star 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".
Geoffrey Mandel, the author of the Star Trek: Star Charts, believed that there were two stars that shared the name Deneb - Deneb (Beta Ceti) and the 'true' Deneb (Alpha Cygni). The first Deneb was a G9.5 star with an apparent magnitude of 0.8. Deneb VI, a failed protostar classified as a Class T planet, was viewed by some as a binary companion of Deneb. The 'true' Deneb was a bright blue giant located 3,230 light years from Sol. Both stars were located in the Alpha Quadrant. (page 33, 34, & 41)
