Star chart of various constellations.

Andromeda is a constellation visible from Earth, named for its characterization as a mythical princess of the same name.

When star-gazing from Sespe in California in the 2270s, James T. Kirk traced over the constellations, through Cassiopeia, until he finally found Andromeda's border of the Triangulum constellation, near where he knew the too-faint-to-be-seen Romulan homesun would be. (TOS novel: My Enemy, My Ally)

This generalized area of space became the first widespread battleground of the Four Years War, the Battle of Andromeda. (FASA RPG module: The Four Years War)

The Federation starships named USS Andromeda are called as such for this region, the formations contained within and its mythological history.
