The Sol System (or Solar system or Terran system) is a star system located in the Vulcan Sector, and marks the border between the Alpha and Beta Quadrant. It is home to the Human homeworld, Earth. Earth Spacedock orbits this planet and is the starting location for all new Federation characters. Starfleet Academy is based in San Francisco, Earth. Of the other worlds in the system, at least Mars and Luna have permanent settlements. The division between Alpha and Beta Quadrant runs through the Sol System.
