Wolf 359 is a dim, red dwarf star, located approximately 7.8 light years from Sol, the third-closest star to Earth, after Proxima Centauri (another dim, red dwarf star) and Barnard's Star. It was discovered and named in the early 20th century by astronomer Maximillian Wolf.
This star was the site of a major battle against the Borg by the Federation in 2366. The Federation lost the battle. Some 11,000 died. There is a large field of debris around the star from the battle.
