Consider:

This enterprise
  • In EoF, Picard indicates that beyond Deneb IV lies the "great unexplored mass of the Galaxy"
It's also strange that Deneb IV ("Cygnus IV," in earlier script-drafts) would represent the ultimate, unknown edge of UFP-explored space, since the Deneb system was mentioned practically every other episode in TOS. Maybe back in Kirk's era, Starfleet avoided sending any expeditions beyond it, and simply worked in the other direction instead?
