The Cheron systems are two star systems in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant and another Federation system, that are all commonly referred to as "Cheron".

It is unclear if there is a greater overall connection between the systems to explain why they share the same name, or if it is simply coincidence and possibly confusion on the part of the various characters referring to them. In actuality, the dual naming seems to have been devised for ST reference: Star Charts to explain how the Battle of Cheron mentioned in TNG episode: "The Defector" could have occurred without the combatants being aware of the Cheronian homeworld. However, since that was not explained in any text beyond the markings on the chart, at least two major sources, ST reference: Federation: The First 150 Years and ENT - The Romulan War novel: To Brave the Storm, have placed the battle at 83 Leonis.
