The Cestus System is a star system located in the Otha Sector of the Beta Quadrant. It is in Federation space near the border with the Gorn Hegemony and on the opposite side of the Federation relative to Deep Space 9.
The Gorn were alarmed by the establishment of a Federation colony in this system on Cestus III, as they regarded the system as part of their territory. Although they destroyed the settlement in the 23rd Century, the Federation had re-established a colony on Cestus III by the late 24th Century.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Although the Cestus System is shown on the Sector Space map, no official missions take place here, and it is only used as a door for user-generated missions.
- Formerly located in the Cestus Sector of the Gamma Orionis Sector Block, the Cestus System was moved to its current location on April 21, 2015, as part of the Galaxy Map revamp in Season Ten: The Iconian War.
