Quadrant was first surveyed by the Quadros-1 probe, launched
during the 22nd century. After initial discovery of the
Bajoran Wormhole in 2369, which has its entrance near the
Idran system, extensive exploration began. Unfortunately
this also led to one of the most devastating wars in Federation
history: The Dominion War.
This map is has been completely reworked and isn't based
on anything else available. In my opinion the Gamma Quadrant
map in the Star
Trek Star Charts is incomprehensive and I decided to
make my own. How could a federation starship cover thousands
of light years in merely a few weeks?

The Dominion is an organisation quite different
compared to the Federation, believing in absolute control
and obidience of their member worlds. Neutralising any possible
threats with drastic measures, by using their military forces
"The Jem'Hadar" to destroy even opposition within
their own members, they established control over a large part
of the Gamma Quadrant and have been been in a long and devastating
war with the Federation.

Inside the Map Section the map is displayed,
you can directly navigate using your mouse. The click-events
depend on the selected tool in the Navigation Control
and in the lower left corner the current scale is displayed.
On the right side of the map, the Navigation
Control can be found. By using the pan and zoom
buttons you can navigate the map and your position will
be displayed inside an overview map, which can also be
used to change your location accordingly.
The following tools with various mouse-events for the
map are available:
The selected tool will be highlighted and a short description
inside the results-area of the Search Section will appear.
Some tools may also display their findings in this area.
It's also possible to open the map key which can be extended
with political information or the information-slide.
The Search Section is right above the
Map and the Navigation Control and will allow you to search
for locations inside this map (enter at least two characters).

The results will be displayed below the input field, on
mouse-over a blinking indicator will illustrate the location's
position in the more distant zoom-levels (The indicator
won't appear in the two closest zoom-levels!). By clicking

center to the corresponding coordinates and zoom in. For
additional information you can select the -icon

inside the information-slide.
The quadrants are divided into sectors, a sector is
typically 20x20x20 light years in size and is assigned
a number when charted. Some sectors may also be named
after prominent locations.
Starbases, Outposts, Space / Repair Stations, Relays
or any other space installation.
Member or a colony of a larger interstellar state.
Non-aligned system under protection or control of
another interstellar state.
Inhabited, warp-capable, independent system.
Habitable system, inhabited by a prewarp-civilisation
Quarantined or isolated system, poses possible dangers.
Barren system which doesn't support life for humanoids.
Known, yet not visited system, exact conditions may
Very small and dense star, which may be rotating rapidly
Black hole or another singularity.
An interstellar cloud of matter (gases, dust) which
may give birth to stars.
Groups of stars held together by their gravitational
forces. May contain hundreds or thousands of stars and
many possible star systems with planets.
