Yup there is a Galactic north and south...unfortunately the Coal Sack nebula, where Charon is supposed to be near, is not "south"
Actually, the Coal Sack Nebula is in Crux, which is one of the constellations closest to the south celestial pole. Which is not the same as the south pole of the galactic coordinate system - in fact, Crux lies on the galactic equator - but I can see how the writers might have gotten that confused (and very few viewers would know the difference, anyway).
