Actually... Gamma Orionis was part of Federation Space. You may remember Cestus III. The lovely little rock where Kirk first encountered the Gorn, and future home of the Pike City Pioneers. It shouldn't really require a transwarp gate to get to at all.

Theres a nice little starmap here:

With the Federation border already swiss cheese from fighting two different wars and being as the sector has already been overrun by the Borg, its not inconceivable to encounter any race there. Provided you can accept that they were able to evade or escape assimilation.
