Beta Lyra (or Beta Lyrae, 10 Lyrae or Sheliak) is a star system located in the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant, in Federation space at coordinates 5.37S 6.33E. This system was visible from Earth in the constellation of Lyra.

History and specifics[edit | edit source]

Beta Lyra is noted as a spectacle for astronomy, with six stellar bodies associated with the system. Passing travelers will often slow or make an approach course to observe the group of stars. (TAS episode & Log Ten novelization: The Slaver Weapon; scientific fact)

By the late-23rd century, the Beta Lyra system's orbit is the site of a planetary system that contains the Federation world Raman. (FASA RPG module: The Federation)

The FASA RPG source material lists this as a "mixed" population, making it unclear whether it is a colony world or the homeworld of a native inhabitation that also hosts populations of other Federation member races and cultures.
When Beta Lyrae was shown in ST reference: Star Charts, it was not color-coded as a Federation system. It is possible that, in the intervening time between the late-23rd century FASA RPG and the late-24th century depicted in Star Charts, the system had become disaffiliated or been abandoned. Another possibility rests on the large number of stellar bodies in the system, indicating that perhaps the settlement remains but the system's affiliation is not specified because another power (possibly the Sheliak, who share a name with this system) has disputed and/or partially or wholly co-opted the Federation's claim on part of the territory. It is also possible the two sources represent a divergence of continuity.
