Vulcan, Andoria, Alpha Centauri, Qo'noS, Romulus... they're all in the Beta Quadrant. (Source: Star Trek Star Charts)

I thought Vulcan is supposed to be in the 40 Eridiani systme. Ther precise location of systems is always a bit vague in Trek and during DS9 one always heard Alpah Quadrant vs. Dominion, but I think it is less ambiguous that the Klingon and Romulan Star Empire are partly located in the Beta Quadrant, while Federation space is also there but more in the Alpha Quadrant.

40 Eri is in the Beta Quadrant (and so are Procyon and Alpha Centauri). The entire Klingon and Romulan Empires are in the Beta Quadrant.

Memory-Alpha
also puts Vulcan in the Beta Quadrant, as defined by the 24th century four-slice map of the galaxy. Also, large parts of the Klingon and Romulan empires exist in the Beta, though their 'headquarters' are both in the Alpha.

At any rate, however one defines the Beta Quadrant, there were certainly many lifeforms and species from it in the TOS era, so this new alien's origins there don't seem to contradict anything.

Which is what matters here!

According to a map I used to have, Earth is close to the A/B dividing line, Vulcan is a ways over the line in the B Quad, sort of in between the Romulan and Klingon empires.

The terminator line separating the beta and alpha quadrants runs right through sector 001 (sol system). Half the federation is in the beta quadrant and the other half in the alpha quadrant ruffly. Cardassia /Bajor and the wormhole is in the alpha quadrant. their is ruffly 2500 light yeas between Cardassia/Bajor and Earth/Fed. I gathered this from the map of the galaxy in the DS9 tech manual so it is not cannon. They may have shown a map of the Galaxy on voyager in the astrometrics LAB that is the same as the one in the tech manual showing the terminator line dividing the Galaxy making it cannon.
