Alpha Crucis (also known as Acrux or 26–27 Crucis) is a star system, a multiple star in the space of the galaxy's Beta Quadrant.


This star group primarily consists of two type B blue stars located 321 light years from Earth, where they are visible in the constellation of Crux. This system was, by the late 24th century, a holding of the Romulan Star Empire. The Acrux system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including ninth planet Acrux IX. (ST video game: Starfleet Command III)

In gameplay, this name was part of a list that were applied to systems on the game map, with random attributes assigned to them.
