Not being able to remember every Constellation name there is, I was left wondering just what some of these Decals represented. I was also left wondering what releation these Constellations have with Star Trek. More importantly, I was looking for any points of reference I could point them to in Star Trek Online as I am exploring the vastness of Space.

So, I began a little bit of fact finding for any relevant data.

The following data has been taken not only from my own knowledge, also as well from the Official Star Trek Library, the Wikis of Memory Alpha, Memory Beta, and the new STO Wiki (which seems to be promising). As well, the second or third (2, 3) links for the Constellations are direct Brittanica Encyclopedia references for a Real-World point of reference.

Please keep in mind the data found on those pages, of which this data mostly comprises of Wiki references, may not always be accurate. This is because Wiki sites can be edited by almost anyone with internet access, the data contained there-in-must never be taken as irrefutable proof of any facts. So if you want to be thorough, always do your own research for the only one that can truly "find something out for sure" is the one finding it out. The rest is all a manner of perception, guidance and acceptance.

I welcome you all to give your own findings on these relations within Star Trek to help better orientate the meanings behind these Decals as well as give the Community a sense of direction as to where in the Universe these Constellations are, while they are roaming the vastness of Space.

My apologies for all the re-arranging and editing. The forums posted 2 posts above the Original Post and then I had my formatting all wrong, so had to re-do that to be more pleasing. I am done now with Sheet #01. Sheet #02 will come when I have the time to go in and get a good number of screen shots, crop and edit them up for posting, and organization into posting. This will most likely occur sometime between tomorrow night and on through Sunday, Eastern Standard.

Not sure what could be put for Sheet #03. Mayhap I'll check out the Klingon Decals.

Interesting. I thought it worth mentioning that Kronos would be in the Leo constellation, as "Omega Leonis" would be a star in it. You should continue this. It's been two years, but why not?
