The Deneb systems are two major star systems in the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant that are both commonly referred to as "Deneb", Alpha Cygni and Deneb Kaitos. There are also a number of other systems, such as Deneb el Okab, that have the word "Deneb" in the name without being referred to simply as "Deneb".

It is unclear if there is a greater overall connection between the two "major" Deneb systems to explain vagueness in using the non-specific "Deneb" to refer to either interchangeably, or if it is simply coincidence and possibly confusion on the part of the various characters referring to them. In actuality, the dual naming was devised by writers and technical advisors to explain certain mentions of visits to Deneb in the early era of Star Trek space exploration, as the slow warp speeds of the time shouldn't have been able to frequently access the more distant "true" Deneb.

Deneb (Alpha Cygni)[]

Main article: Alpha Cygni.

Galaxy star chart showing Deneb.

The Deneb system (also known as Alpha Cygni or Alpha Cygnus) is a major system that is quite distant from the core of the Federation, and probably the most notable to Earth astronomy due to observations throughout the history of Human science. This system is visible from Sol in the constellation of Cygnus. (ST reference: Star Charts)

The Alpha Cygnus vicinity led to the Cygnus Reach, a major territory that was not explored by the Federation until the late 24th century. (TNG novel: The Buried Age)

Deneb Kaitos[]

Main article: Deneb Kaitos.

The Deneb Kaitos system (also known as Beta 16 Ceti) is located much closer the central Federation. This system is visible from Sol in the constellation of Cetus. (ST reference: Star Charts)
