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 World", TNG episode: "The Drumhead", DS9 episode: "Emissary", ST novel: Final Entry, TNG comic: "Second Contact").

Several destroyed starships at Wolf 359.

Wolf 359 (also CN Leonis) is a star located about 7.7 light years from Sol in the constellation of Leo.

In 2367, Wolf 359 was the location of the first major engagement between the Federation and the Borg. The battle was a disaster for Starfleet with 39 of the 40 starships sent to stop the Borg cube destroyed and 11,000 personnel killed. (TNG: "Best of Both Worlds, Part II")

Starfleet Museum continuity

At Wolf 359 the famous combined fleet exercises took place in 2237. The offensive Blue Team, which includes four Siegfried-class dreadnoughts — Siegfried, Hercules, Lysander and Perseus — and three Belleau Wood-class assault transports — Clavius, Vera Cruz and Hella Planitia — achieves its objective of landing troops by shuttlecraft on the system's fourth planet against the defending Red Team, comprised of mostly Valley Forge and Paris-class ships.

The post-exercise analysis determined that Siegfried-class ships were effective shock weapons against targets of limited maneuverability, such as space stations, surface installations, and ships defending a planet or comprising a large formation, or when they were protected by escorts and destroyers.

Star Trek: Shadowstar Station continuity

There are two colonies in the Wolf 359 system. One, Yogyakarta Baru, is on the fifth planet, where reserves of topaline and pergium are discovered by an American Continent Institute expedition in 2127 (Star Trek: Shadowstar Station: Timeline).
