Besides, STO is a non-canon property along with everything else that isn't on a TV or movie screen, so as long as it meets with CBS approval, Cryptic could put Archer IV in Gamma Orionis if they really wanted to. A moot point anyway, since this Archer is a different system entirely according to the tooltip text.
They went with the idea that there are multiple planets named after Archer, didn't they?

(Which is also the J.J.-verse comics' explanation for Delta Vega. That there are multiple planets with that name.)
