Sheratan, also known as Beta Arietis or 6 Arietis, was a star system, a binary star located somewhere in the space of the galaxy's Alpha or Beta Quadrants.


This system was visible from Earth in the Sol system, some 59 light-years distant, in the constellation of Aries. This system was within boundaries of territory claimed by the Romulan Star Empire. The Sheratan system's orbit was the location of a number of worlds, including seventh planet, Sheratan VII. (ST video game: Starfleet Command III)

In gameplay, this name was part of a list that were applied to planets on the game map, with random attributes assigned to them. Since Beta Arietis is a "real" star system, modern scientists know a few things about its distance and makeup that were not in Star Trek.
