Points of Interest[edit | edit source]

The Bajoran wormhole by Deep Space Nine is a strategic location in the quadrant

The Alpha Quadrant has significant influence from the powers in the Beta Quadrant to the extend the Klingons and Romulans have been referred to as Alpha Quadrant powers. The interest in the sector is largely around the presence of the Bajoran wormhole and the station by it, Deep Space Nine.

The quadrant is also known to contain examples of shocking interstellar beauty and scientific wonder such as the Argolis Cluster, the Arachnid Nebula, and the Badlands.

Playable Area[edit | edit source]

The old Alpha Quadrant, before it was expanded in Season 12

The Alpha Quadrant is one of the two largest playable quadrants in Star Trek Online, but it still covers a fraction of the overall quadrant. As of Season 12, it covers 35 sectors including much of the Federation's Alpha Quadrant members along with most of Cardassian and Ferengi space, and sections of Breen space.

Before release of Season 10, four sector blocks were placed in Alpha Quadrant: Zeta Andromedae, Beta Ursae, Alpha Trianguli and Orellius. Season 10 moved these to the Beta Quadrant, merged all Alpha Quadrant sector blocks into a single unit and expanded it. Season 12 added further sectors to the Alpha Quadrant towards the galactic core, and moved a few sectors and planets into the expanded area.
