🎨 Creative [Setting Riff] The Only Sci Fi Star Chart You'll Ever Need

Read this thread and was inspired with the idea that you could probably do something similar for sci fi setings like Star Trek and Babylon 5. Of course, creating an entire universe is a big job, plus I'm not good at art so rather than doing all the work myself I thought how about a team effort. So here we are. Our task is to create a map of the galaxy that contains all the myriad tropes and elements seen in space-based stories and games.

I'll start the ball rolling by listing a few potential areas and features:

The Diverse Alliance of Nice Guys (or should it be The Nice Alliance of Diverse Guys?)
Proud Warrior Empire
Space Nazi Territory
Star Faring Rome
The Do Not Cross Zone
Elves With Starships
Casablanca Station
Ancient Space Gods' Lawn
Pleasure World
Starship Graveyard
Hostile Robot Hordes
Anomaly #12
