Alpha Cygni (also known as Deneb, Arided, Gallina, 50 Cygni or Alpha Cygnus) is a star with an associated star system, an A class blue star visible from Earth as the brightest star of the constellation of Cygnus, over a thousand light-years from Sol. Quite distant from the core of the Federation, Deneb is most notable to Earth astronomy due to observations throughout the history of Human science. (ST reference: Star Charts)

In Star Trek: Star Charts, page 34 incorrectly refers to Deneb as "Alpha Leonis" (which is an alternate name for Regulus). However, page 12 does correctly associate Deneb with its true name, Alpha Cygni.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

Beyond Deneb lies a great galactic mass known as the Cygnus Reach, which was not explored until 2364, by the USS Enterprise. (TNG novel: The Buried Age)

It has at least nine planets. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Star Trek: The Next Generation Core Game Book)

At many points in the vicinity of the Federation, Deneb is one of the brightest bodies visible. Shortly before stardate 7502.9, at 0739 hours, the USS Enterprise observed in line-of-sight when Antares occulted Deneb, meaning the two brightest stars visible to their ship appeared to merge. As it wasn't an exciting mission, most of the Enterprise crew attended a viewing of the spectacle. (TOS novel: World Without End)

It is not to be confused with the Deneb Kaitos system, also known as the Deneb system.

In TNG video game: Birth of the Federation, the orbital configuration of the game map star systems was randomly generated each time a new game started.
No history or specifics are established for the Deneb location in Starfleet Command III gameplay, as its name was arbitrarily selected for a system on the game map by the game software, with random attributes.
