There are a few serious inaccuracies with the current map. I'd like to see it these things fixed if they were to redo the map. While it's true that no official map of the galaxy's territories has been shown in the series, there are technical manuals and such that vaguely flesh it out.
First off: there's an unexplored nebula right next to Earth, even though that entire blue field you see in the upper left portion of the map is all Federation territory. All that blue has been explored, so there's no reason why Earth should be so close to unexplored territory.
The borders that define territory between the Federation and Romulans, and Federation and Klingons is fine as it is. It accurately shows that the Klingon and Romulan territories are located mainly in the Beta Quadrant as they should be (well, the Klingons skirt between Alpha & Beta.)
The other issue that baffles me is the location of the Orellius Sector. In order for the map to be accurate in order to allow the Klingons to access it from Eta Eridani, the Beta Ursae and Alpha Trianguli sectors need to be flipped around. As it stands, the Klingons enter Orellius from the West via the southern most sector on the map, while Orellius can also be accessed from the south side by going north from Beta. This means that the Klingons have to somehow travel through both Beta and Alpha just to instantly get to Orellius.
Either that or just move Orellius to the southeast portion of Alpha Trianguli...
WHY IS THE MUTARA NEBULA IN THE MIDDLE OF BORG TERRITORY IN THE DELTA QUADRANT!???
Seriously, how did Captain Kirk and Khan manage to travel all that way out there just to have their famous battle?
