A star chart of the Milky Way Galaxy

The Federation star charts were a collection of star charts, including all pertinent information about the star systems visited by Federation probes and starships.

In 2269, the USS Enterprise was on outward course beyond the fringe of the galaxy, near Questar M-17 on a star charting mission. (TAS: "Beyond the Farthest Star")

In 2370, the USS Enterprise-D investigated a rogue comet in Sector 1156 that was not on Federation charts. (TNG: "Masks")


"The Explored Galaxy" Edit

The Explored Galaxy

A star chart of the explored areas of the Milky Way Galaxy

The star chart of the explored space in the Alpha Quadrant depicted the home systems of the three great powers in the quadrant - the Federation, the Klingon Empire, and the Romulan Star Empire. Along with these systems, the home systems of several less significant powers - the Tholian Assembly, the First Federation, and the Kzin - were, also, depicted on the chart. Many of the locations on this map were visited by the USS Enterprise during its historic five-year mission of the late 2260s. Developments in the 24th century, such as the expansion of the great powers into uncharted and charted space, reduced this chart to a historical relic by the 2370s.

In 2293, the star chart of the explored galaxy was displayed in Captain Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country) The chart was also seen frequently in the 24th century in various locations. In 2364, the chart was displayed at Starfleet Headquarters in the room where Dexter Remmick, possessed by neural parasites, was killed after sending a homing beacon. (TNG: "Conspiracy") In 2365, the chart was seen in the court room on Starbase 173 (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man") and the tactical room aboard the USS Enterprise-D, close to another map that depicted the whole Milky Way Galaxy. (TNG: "The Emissary") In 2367, the chart was seen in the tactical laboratory of Enterprise-D. (TNG: "The Mind's Eye") In 2368, in the ship's engineering laboratory. (TNG: "The Game") In 2369 and 2370, the chart was seen in the classroom aboard Deep Space 9, featuring the heading "The Explored Galaxy". (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets", "Cardassians")

The chart was created by the art department originally for "Conspiracy" and it had various locations labeled, including many TOS and TAS homages
The chart was also seen in the pilot episode of the British Science Fiction series The Sarah Jane Adventures in the eponymous main character's attic.

LCARS star charts Edit

Several star charts appeared in the USS Enterprise-D library computer.

Spaceflight Chronology starchart 1

A star chart

Star chart 1
This star chart showed Sol located near the center of the map; the bold lines lead from there to Epsilon Eridani (upper right) and Alpha Centauri A (lower left). Thinner lines lead to other stars, like Sirius A, Tau Ceti, 61 Cygni A and Barnard's star. Other stars depicted are Wolf 359, Procyon A and B, Ross 248, Luyten 789-6, Epsilon Indi, Ross 154, Groombridge 34 A and B, Alpha Centauri B and C, Sirius B, 61 Cygni B and Lalande 21185.
The star chart was taken from page 77 of the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, where it was explained as showing Earth commercial lanes (bold lines) and exploration routes (dotted lines) in the 2050s and 2060s. It was seen in TNG: "The Naked Now", "The Last Outpost" and "Conspiracy".

This star chart showed text in the upper left corner stating that the transport Diana was plundered there. The text in the upper right corner marked the location where the USS Muleskinner was spacejacked.
The star chart was taken from page 95 of the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, where it was explained as showing Federation commercial lanes (bold lines) and exploration routes (dotted lines) in the 2090s. It was seen in TNG: "The Naked Now", "The Last Outpost", "Datalore" and "Conspiracy".

Star chart 3
This star chart showed text in the upper half of the chart denoting the place where the USS Greyhound encountered a probe from outside the galaxy.
The star chart was taken from page 115 of the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, where it was explained as showing Federation exploration routes (dotted lines), close to the rim of Federation space in the 2120s. It was seen in TNG: "The Last Outpost", "Datalore" and "Conspiracy".

A star chart

Star chart 4
This star chart shows, in the upper half, the Jewel Stars. Argelius II is identified in the lower right corner of the star chart.
The star chart was taken from page 133 of the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, where it was explained as showing a part of Federation space in the 2140s, with the thin lines denoting routes of commercial tourist starliners. It was seen in TNG: "Datalore" and "Conspiracy".

A star chart

Star chart 5
This star chart shows points around the supernova of the star Phi Puma, out towards Bayard's Planet, denoted by text in the lower right corner.
The star chart was taken from page 151 of the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology, where it was explained as showing a part of Federation space in the 2160s, mapping the effects of the Phi Puma nova concussion ring by the year 2165. It was modified slightly (the lines emanating from the rim of the circle were added) to appear on-screen. It was seen in TNG: "The Naked Now", "The Last Outpost", "Datalore" and "Conspiracy".
