Wrong!! In Enterprise, it was clearly stated that the Archer system is 31 Light Years from Earth.

And if Mol'Rihan is on the border, then why is Nimbus (which was canonically confirmed being in the Neutral Zone), deep within Romulan Territory?

Nimbus System - Shouldn't be in Romulan space, it should be inside Fed space close to the Romulan Neutral Zone

Galorndon Core - It shouldn't be that far into Romulan space, it should be VERY close to the Romulan Neutral Zone inside Fed space

Starbase 234 - Seriously? Inside Romulan space?

Nequencia System - Should be named to "Nequencia Alpha System", should be in Fed space, near Romulan Neutral Zone

Khitomer System - Should be in Klingon Space, taken by the Klingon Empire in 2382

Azure Nebula - Fail. Just Fail. Look at the image of Omega Leonis and you'll see why.

Beta Thoridor - Should be Beta Thoridar, should be deep inside Klingon space, not on the border

Pheben System - Debatable, is part of the Klingon Empire, but I doubt the House of J'mpok would use this sytem on the border of Romulan space

Archer System - Should be near Klingon space, not on the border

Right Dan ... , it is a bit fuzzy ... unless you bother to look things up instead of placing Rome , London , Paris and Moscow all in New Jersey ... because those places sound cool ... .

Welcome to Tau Dewa ... where the writers think that you like stupid-fun instead of clever-accurate fun .
Pretty much.

How much you want to bet the artist just looked at the Star Chats and didn't think about research?

Wonder if it's the same person who put Iconia deep in Federation space than along the Neutral Zone like it supposed to?

Think I'll make a little map of my own and give Cryptic a choice which is better?

This is Star Trek Online. Details and accuracy are important to Star Trek fans.

Or just designing more ships for lockboxes :p
If the Dev Tool is supposed to be very similar to the Foundry. I bet it would take the Art team less than a few minutes to drag the planets to their proper locations. Now the Territorial grid underneath, might take some doing.
