And neither are the Klingons. It would be nice to see something that bears that out. Even if, again, not all sector blocks are defined.
Consider, the Enterprise has been to the Romulan and Klingon homeworlds, with less than a year travel time to either. These are both empires that are also expanding and exploring. Space is indeed big, but most of it is empty and systems with class M planets are relatively scarce.

Given that, plus the fact that border systems are colonized, what evidence other than wishful thinking is there that the Federation isn't 'land locked?'
