For Earth's solar system, please see Sol system.

A star system (also known as a solar system, a planetary system or simply as a system) is the area around a star (or a group of stars) which contains all of the planets, moons, asteroids, nebulae and other landmarks which are held in place by the star's gravity well. (TOS: "The Cage", "Elaan of Troyius", "The Doomsday Machine", "Patterns of Force"; ENT: "Broken Bow"; DS9: "Starship Down")

Star systems have a habitable zone where the inhabited planets and planets that can be terraformed are located. (TNG: "The Battle" display graphic) A star system's boundaries are marked by the area in which a star or celestial body's gravitational force affects its surrounding environment. Often the edge of these boundaries is a large, thin layer of ice, dust and debris called an Oort cloud. (DS9: "The Maquis, Part II")

Using warp drive to travel from within a solar system to another point in the system is not recommended. The USS Defiant performed such a maneuver in 2373 in the Bajoran system. (Star Trek: The Motion Picture; DS9: "By Inferno's Light")

In 2254, Spock compared the Talos star group to the Earth solar system. (TOS: "The Cage")
