# 1 Mission building resources
12-30-2010, 07:44 AM
The main thing I am looking at the moment is whether anyone knows of a good, easily readable map of all star systems known in the trek universe. So far the ones I have been looking at are scans from the old star charts book that came out in the early 2000's. While these are helpful, I am looking for something potentially more detailed and preferably searchable, though I imagine this is a tall order.

Additionally if anyone has any suggestions for research sites and the like, by all means feel free to post here and share with others. My goal is to potentially group as many resources together in order to provide others with the tools to make their missions more interesting and, forgive me for using this very much abused phrase, 'more trek.'

We could certainly use help adding more links to the ugc wiki's community portal.


You could also find resources and links on the sidebar of the blog, and I've been trying to build a "store" of the Trek reference guides. If I missed anything, then please let me know.

We really do need some type of resource hub. I've been trying, but it's probably incomplete. The sto community and the resources are a little fragmented, and Cryptic should follow Stoked's advice from the latest episode.

Check out these maps:

They're actually from a book called (I think) Star Trek Star Charts. The structure of the Federation and surrounding areas matches really closely with Crytpic's version of the galaxy. You might also get better views (possibly a unified picture) by searching for images relating to "Star Trek Star Charts."

Supposedly the work here served as a basis for the above book.

Thanks guys, Ill have to go digging through the stuff over on the StarbaseUGC site a little deeper, I've been keeping up with things over there but I hadn't really looked for any community resources over there.

mygod_itsfullofstars yeah the first link you give is indeed the charts book I mentioned before that i have found scans of in the past, those were the best quality images I've found so far in my looking, but they still aren't as good as I would hope. I briefly looked over the stdimension site, it probably won't hurt reading through again.

Thanks for the responses both of you!
