The map above is Shakaar’s Alpha/Beta map v3.3; a fan-made creation showing the Alpha and Beta quadrants of the Star Trek universe.
The map shows both major and minor powers that have appeared in the various series over the years.
At the centre is the United Federation of Planets, which borders the major power of the Klingon Empire, Roman Star Empire and the Cardassian Union. More minor powers include the Breen, Ferengi Alliance, Tholian Assembly, Sheliak Corporate and the Gorn Hegemony among many, many others.
The map highlights:
- Principal Systems
- Minor Systems
- Non-Aligned Systems
- Dead Systems
- Government Borders
- Points of Interest
- Navigation Hazards
- Star Clusters
- Stations or Starbases

I know that:
a) it’s a bit of fun
b) it’s hard to make a 2d map of 3d space
and c) there no official maps to go off
But Christ, there’s a lot of stuff on here which makes no sense.
Justin Spaulding says
Isn’t gamma haromi 2 supposed to be in the haromi cluster…. Good effort though! S3. E8 I think. The “gatherers”
Danny Beans says
Why are Ceti Alpha V and Ceti Alpha VI in completely different sectors? I mean, okay, Chekov can be a little dumb sometimes, but that’s one helluva mistake to make.
Jadziah Dax says
Can’t wait to see the one you do!
I agree, several planets said to be in the alpha quadrant are in the beta quadrant and vice versa or not listed at all.
Okay so Xindus by Vulcan…. kys I’m not even gona bother looking further don’t make a map if you don’t know what your talking about
Romulons should have Dyson sphere (at least at Romulus and Remus). Their ship tech is based on creating black holes which will give a ship a reactor core with a life of a handful of years BUT it’s just like an inefficient battery because it takes way more energy to initially create it then it will give off over its life BUT it’s portable. Sure beats light sails if your depending on home system energy and way more flexible too. This was their tech wheelhouse, and was their interstellar travel energy source instead of antimatter. It makes total sense for them to have harnessed the majority of their native suns energy to create reactor cores wherever they needed a portable energy that couldn’t tap into the system wide grid.
A few questions… 1) Why are there several Indus VIII on the map?, 2) I do not see the First Federation on this map — they should be near the Ferengi!, 3) Where is the Kelvin planet? (The planet colonized by the Kelvins from “By Any Other Name”), 4) Maybe I’m wrong, but I do not see the Dyson Sphere that TNG crew ran into?
Shane Montgomery says
I don’t see Barzan II or the Barzan Wormhole here?
They are there. Literally the only Dyson sphere symbol near the bottom.
Spock: He is intelligent, but not experienced. His pattern indicates two dimensional thinking.
Glenn Bryson says
Not your fault, I know;
Vulcan is “Supposed” to be “A little over sixteen” light years from earth. Yet the map has it at around 1000. That’s one of my biggest gripes about Star Trek (I absolutely love Star Trek, don’t get me wrong). Distances and travel times are so inconsistent and unrealistic based on the documented scales, maps, etc.
Did you mean Starbase 375 instead of 395? As in the starbase from S6 of DS9 after the Dominion took over the station?
Avro Arrow says
I love this map, especially how you have the Hydran Kingdom, the Lyran Star Empire and the Kzinti Hegemony are listed (where is the Interstellar Concordium?). I have one small nit-pick to make and that is you have two systems named “Nelvana III”. They’re both in the upspin Beta quadrant but one is in the Romulan Neutral Zone and the other is further upspin and outward (left). I think that you might consider making most of the empty space that is coreward of Klingon and Romulan space into the ISC. They were referred to as being a Galactic Superpower residing on the far side of both those Empires (so, coreward).
If we do or don’t do it, someone will laugh
I dont understand how this can be called a map of the star trek galaxy when there isnt even a spot or indication of where earth is. Who makes a map without earth when you have a series where its location is based on earth. In the series they refer to Earth as Earth. Yet the closes thing to it is on the map is Volcan. Y not add Earth as well? If there is an alternative name how come it’s never mentioned in the shows and a secret for fans?
Earth is 100 percent there. It’s Sol. It’s a common alternate name for our star system and has been used in Trek.
Sol system. The Greek word for sun. Follow the bold line and look for the team
Terran and Vulcan sectors. Sol is on the 4 corners there
Cheron is not in the Romulan sphere of influence. It is located in the “Southern most part of the Galaxy”, Captain Kirk. Episode “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield”
That dude says
Tykens rift, not Titans.
Starbase 47 is about 10 sectors off as memory Beta says it is located between the Tholian assembly and the Klingon empire.
Prophets Landing is in the gamma quadrant.
That’s all for now!
That Guy says
Alpha Onias III is on here multiple times
John S says
Don’t the Klingon and Cardassian Empires border each other? A lot of DS9 s4 doesn’t make sense if they don’t…
