The Orion Arm is the region of the Milky Way Galaxy containing the bulk of the Federation, as well as most of the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star Empire, and other local political organizations. The Orion "spur" (or "local spur") is a minor arm which is an offshoot of the Sagittarius Arm. It is bisected by the Alpha Quadrant/Beta Quadrant border. (ST references: Star Fleet Technical Manual, Star Trek: Star Charts; TNG novel: Intellivore)

The graphic representation of the Orion Arm's place in the galaxy that was shown in Star Trek: Star Charts was seen in canon many times, as set artwork during the last three seasons of Star Trek: Voyager.

In this diagram, the Orion Arm is labeled "Local Spur". The position of the Solar System is indicated by the yellow dot.

The Orion Arm is a spiral escalation of a minor spiral arm in the Milky Way galaxy; it is located near the galactic core and is part of the Sagittarius Arm (a major arm). The Solar System and Earth are within and amid the Orion Arm. It is also referred to as the Local Arm, Local Spur, or the Orion Spur. It is named "Orion" due to its proximity to the Orion Constellation.[1]

By 2490, UNSC colonial space encompassed over 800 planets and colonies ranging from small outposts to large, important military strongholds in the Orion Arm.[2]

The Covenant's area of inhabitants also includes a large portion of the Orion Arm.
