StarCraft Galaxy Map

This is just the first post for my current work on a StarCraft Galaxy Map.

I'll post updating blog posts whenever new info comes in, so right now, the map is a bit limited.

Hopefully, LotV will deliver with the Celestial Array where WoL and HotS failed with their star-maps given what they were suppose to be originally.

Anyways, here's the map currently: [1]

All of the info for the current map comes from the manual:

60,000 light year distance:

"Eventually, the warp-drive engines of the four supercarriers reached critical meltdown. After twenty-eight years of warp travel, the huge ships emerged into real space near the edge of a habitable star system. Some 60,000 light years from the Earth, their engines destroyed and their life-support batteries nearly exhausted, the ships engaged their emergency protocols and plummeted towards the nearest habitable worlds in the system." -Manual

Gantris VI distance based on its travel time and the travel time to the Koprulu Sector:

"The navigation computer was then programmed with the coordinates of the outlying planet Gantris VI." -Manual

Originally scheduled as a one-year trip, their voyage took a turn for the worse." -Manual

After twenty-eight years of warp travel, the huge ships emerged into real space near the edge of a habitable star system." -Manual

Galactic fringe/rim location of the Koprulu Sector:

"Aiur, a massive jungle-world on the galaxy’s fringe, had borne a race of highly advanced beings." -Manual

"All seemed in perfect preparation, but even Routhe could not have imagined that the prisoners would be launched to their almost certain deaths in the galactic rim." -Manual

"Forced to adapt to a harsh existence on the mostly lifeless worlds along the Galactic Rim, the Terrans are masters of survival." -Manual

Location of Zerus:

"Traveling thousands of light years into the burning core of the galaxy, the Xel’Naga eventually settled upon the volatile ash-world of Zerus." - Manual

So, any thoughts?

Any info in the lore I may have missed?

I think I hit pay-dirt by going through some sources.

During the "Raynor's dead" News broadcast cinematic, Kerrigan brings up the navigation screen.

It displays a Solar System with the indicator in the lower right pointing in the galaxy where it's at. [2]

I'll do some work on this later, but I think I hit a jackpot!

Just a note, I'm going to ignore the "Milky Way seen from Moria" given the massive contradiction that would make.

Okay, after looking through the image, I'm sure I can now update the map.

From a little line drawing here: [3]

I think using this new piece of evidence along with the manual, I can confirm the Sector being here: [4]

I may need to change the yellow circle more into a shape that covers more of the Spiral Arm though.

I think the system is a bit farther away from the arm's end.

I'll work on figuring out a more exact location for the system either later today or tomorrow. --Shadow Archon (talk) 13:25, June 1, 2015 (UTC)

Edit 4:

Looking over the frames, I noticed that Phaeton's system is located in a different location than the Zerg system on the overall galaxy!

I can actually figure out a rough distance between the two systems giving a somewhat concrete length to the size of the Koprulu Sector!

I have to go through all the frames first, so that's going to take a bit longer, but I'm really excited on this find! --Shadow Archon (talk) 22:08, June 2, 2015 (UTC)
