Wolf 359 (also known as CN Leonis) is a star, located about 2.4 parsecs (7.8 light-years) from Earth, where it is visible in the constellation of Leo. (Reference book: Spaceflight Chronology)

The Wolf 359 system was the site of a major battle between the United Federation of Planets and the Borg. In early 2367, on stardate 44002.3, a fleet of forty starships, under the command of Admiral J.P. Hanson, massed at Wolf 359 to confront a Borg cube en route to Earth. Using the knowledge of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who had been assimilated and given the designation Locutus, the Borg destroyed 39 ships, and took over 11,000 lives. (TNG episode: "The Best of Both Worlds", TNG episode: "The Drumhead", DS9 episode: "Emissary", ST novel: Final Entry, TNG comic: "Second Contact")

Debris from the battle remained in the system through 2368, when the Enterprise passed by the area bound for Mardion III. A memorial was set-up and active as of 2409. (TNG comic: "The Worst of Both Worlds", ST video game: Online)
