So why not make it such that in neutral zones you are safe but when you fly across the boarder into enemy space you become fair game for that faction unless you have Diplomatic immunity or Raiding party?

I'm new to this discussion, but wouldn't merging all the sector blocks into one slow down the server response? My impression is that all the different sector blocks are all different instances and effectively different programs. I would think merging all that into one would really bog down the game speed unless you did instanced versions of the entire map. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Porthos is not amused.

I have always liked the idea of 1 large sector space, it would make space feel a lot larger than it currently does plus I would like to be able to use auto pilot from DS9 to say... the new Romulan homeworld or the Sol system without any walls stopping me.

they could leave existing system "AS IS" , and add a new, border-free zone.. to explore, to have random encounters with random civilizations, to build a base.. whatever..

I think they should merge it into one big map.. with all the different zones it'll be good... i think

Me too. But I don't think we will ever see either "One Sector Map to Rule Them All", or consensual open world PVP, as much as most of want to see it.

Agree.

But who knows... later on, they could consider it.

I have the impression they have clear priorities now until next Season(s), and then there will be time to invent and see the bigger revamps.

Not true, this not a map of the entire galaxy just two quadrants and it may not be the complete two quadrants. I think having earth the centre of the map is a little medeval though.

Im all for the OP's idea I hate all the little sector blocks it can get confusing and I hatewarping into unmapped space by accident because I wasnt paying attention.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

Braaaaains.... Braaaaaaaaaains...
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
