Xi Herculis (also known as 92 Herculis and the Aurelius region) is a star system, a binary star in the galaxy's Alpha Quadrant.


This binary is centered at a type G yellow giant primary star, in the constellation of Hercules, 160 light-years from Earth. Xi Herculis is the location of the planet Aurelia, homeworld of the Aurelian civilization. (ST reference: The Worlds of the Federation)


By 2380, the Federation had established colonies in the system. That year, the inhabited planets of the Aurelius region were assaulted by a Borg force led by T'Uerell. In response, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise-E ordered that all Federation civilians in the system were to be evacuated to Starbase 127. Thanks to the efforts of a Starfleet task force led by the Enterprise, fifteen impulse transports carrying the majority of the populations of the planets in the Aurelius region made it to Starbase 127, and the evacuees were transferred to warp-capable ships.
