Map of Sector A1-0

Map of Sector A1-0

This is the map for the A1-0 canon, one of the three official South Pacific canons. It is used for roleplaying here on the forums. @Galaxiel, @im_a_waffle1 and @Qwert are the map managers.

Sector A1-0 and the sci-fi canon world

The map shows a portion of the Lampshade Galaxy where all official sci-fi canon roleplays take place. Canon roleplay is limited to this specific area (meaning we don’t normally interact with the rest of the galaxy). Scroll further down for more information about the galaxy.

Sector Map A1-0 is 3,400x3,400 light-years and we assume a 100 ly-depth**. This means*** that within this sector, there is a maximum of

  • 32,000 stars/plot (and 1,080,000 in total)
  • 32,000 planets/plot (and 1,080,000 in total)
  • 6,300 planets/plot that might support life
  • 50 planets/plot with intelligent communicative life that have developed independently

** This yields an area that is about 15 times as large as that in which most of the action takes place in in the Star Trek series. The Treecuu plot would roughly be 1.75 times larger than the Federation.

*** Calculations are based on a square-shaped galaxy (for simplicity), with a volume of 130x130x2x10^9 = 3.38x10^13 ly^3 containing 100 billion stars, and optimistic values for the Drake equation (N = 156,000,000 active, communicative extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy).

For reference: the closest star to our RL Earth is 4.37 ly away. At 1000xc (1000 times the speed of light), it would take about 1.5 days to travel there (about warp 8 as a Star Trek reference, which is fast).

Find below the claiming rules, the claiming template and a sample claim. It is also recommended that you read the Getting Started Guide for some useful roleplaying tips and community rules.

Map rules

  • One plot per player
  • Keep customisation limited and relevant (so that the most important stuff fits in your plot)
  • Nations that belong to players that haven’t been active for over one month will be removed (exceptions are made for nations that have made a lasting impact on the A1-0 canon and for players that specifically ask to keep their plots)

How to make a claim

Copy the form found inside the code box below and fill it out, and then post it in this thread. If your post receives a like from the map manager (currently @Qwert) within a few days it means everything is OK. Remember to check the thread after you’ve posted your claim to see if there’s information concerning your claim and to fulfil the activity requirement. If you have been given a like, you can start using your nation in roleplay.

Unfortunately I don’t add administrative borders but I can do (some of) the planets. Do you have a larger version of the map?

I won’t be able to stay in A1-0, my personal life has gotten very busy due to moving combined with schoolwork. You guys are all amazing writers and I wish you all the best.

Could you remove my nation from the map to open up some space for people who have more time to participate is this amazing rp?

Number of desired plot: 28
Name of plot: Ician Union.
Capital: Icus Citadel. [Station]
Location of capital: See map.
Customization: See map. Je-Gun is a Star, Klogins Military base is a Station, Klogish is a Star, Nubis Defense Co. HQ is a Station and Nubia Nebula DMZ is a Demilitarized Zone


So, I want to make a claim, but the thing I want to do would only take up about a solar system, so it would be a waste to claim and entire plot for that.
Should I just not be silly and do something else?
