History and specifics
On star charts, this system could be seen to be in the vicinity of Omicron Ceti, Altair III, Antares and Beta Simmons. (TNG episodes: "The Wounded", "Yesterday's Enterprise", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)
In the 2360s decade, this location was noted on a star chart showing deployment of Federation and Cardassian Union ships displayed in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room aboard the starship USS Phoenix. (TNG episode: "The Wounded")
On a 24th century viewscreen display of a tactical situation monitor in an alternate timeline where the Klingon Empire was at war with the United Federation of Planets in the year 2366, Theta Bowles was listed on a star chart showing Klingon allied forces in relation to Federation positions. (TNG episode: "Yesterday's Enterprise", TNG reference: The Continuing Mission)
The stellar notation using the Greek language letter "theta" indicates that there might be a star group or constellation of some sort named "Bowles", of which Theta Bowles would logically be indicated to be the eighth most prominent star or system.
The Theta Bowles system was only listed on the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alternate timeline tactical situation monitor showing progress of the Klingon war with the Federation, and a later re-use of this chart in "The Wounded".
