Beta Columbae (also known as Wazn or the Barolia system) is a star with an associated star system located in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant, just outside of the space of the Romulan Star Empire.


This star was visible from Earth, 86 light-years distant, as part of the constellation of Columba. Beta Columbae is a type K orange star and it's orbit was the location of a planetary system, including Barolia, the homeworld of the Barolian civilization. By the 24th century, this was known as a system close to the tenuous political situation of the Federation-Romulan Neutral Zone. (ST reference: Star Charts)

The Federation starship USS Bhutto was assigned by Starfleet to patrol the Beta Columbae system in 2381. (TNG novel: Greater Than the Sum)
