I then overlapped the 2. I've found several conflicting maps, but I'm pretty happy with the locations. The same goes with the sectors been either a solid grid or been radial, we actually have maps from the series showing both. Eitherway, it gives a much better idea to players on the vague scale of the sectorblocks in the greater scheme of things, as well as where Gamma Orionis actually is (that been NOT in the Delta Quadrant). :-)

Oh, yes. Very nice effort. It's certainly good enough for illustration purposes. It is very difficult to give a proper sense of scale to these charts - they get so stupid-big *real* fast. For instance, the "Known Space" inset from the ST:SC map would fit neatly inside that 2000 LY map i linked.

Anyhow, thanks for all your work.

Indeed, if I made the sector blocks any smaller infact, then they would be pretty hard to see! When you see it on the map though it makes you realise how laughable it was thta ships in the Series got back to Earth so quickly and that with the speeds ships move in STO, getting to Voyagers initial stranded location would take probably 30 minutes max :-P

# 16 Question about the Odyssey
09-06-2012, 08:39 AM
If I decide to buy the Odyssey trio set...
1.) Is it worth it?
2.) If I decide to buy it, can I use all three consoles at once? I.E. Use the chevron separation and the Aquarius escort and the worker bees?
3.) Would it be better than the MVAM or the same since it would have three parts?

Thanks!

1) No, not really. Most of the time 2 of the ships sit idle and it wastes 3 console slots for little benefit.
2) No. You can use the chevron and bees, or aquarius and bees, but not all 3 at once
3) The MVAM is better as you have 2 viable pets and a way to switch between ship types

The Engineering and Science Odysseys are amazing tanks, and can take a hell of a beating, if you set them up right. The Aquarius is kind of useless, but the Chevron Seperation, and Worker Bees come in handy.

It's been quite a while since I made any updates to my charts, mainly due to other work getting in the way! Anyway, since it's the holidays I managed to find some time to update the starchart to season 7 ;-)

Suricata's Starchart Season 7

For the most part I've just added the Romulan sector block and moved a few systems in otehr sectors that were altered with the move. Hope the map still proves useful!

I've not been playing as much these days, so not sure if the Tour the Galaxy event includes the new Romulan sectors? If so, i'll alter the route slightly. Also, noticed that the Hromi Cluster isn't actually in the Hromi sector ingame, not sure if this is a mistake or not, but was something I found odd whilst placing it in its new location!
