Sadly, though, if this is the canon map for Star Trek, the place where the Federation, Klingon Empire and Romulan Empire all meet isn't quite triangle shaped anymore....
Where is the colorful map from?


I'm not 100% sure that there actually is a canon map of the Star Trek galaxy. I've seen so many different versions, but none that had any indicator (like a Paramount logo or something) of authenticity and/or canonicity. Numerous books containing maps of the Star Trek galaxy have been published, but considering that several of those books were published at least as early as the 1980s, they may be completely obsolete by now.

The most current map is likely in the corebook of the latest Star Trek RPG, namely Star Trek Adventures. The map I linked to is older than the one in ST:A (from what I can tell of the screenshots of the map in the ST:A book) but they look nearly identical. Unfortunately, I don't know where the original map came from, though there are numerous links to it (Reddit and such) on the internet.

Thanks for clarifying. Star Trek galaxy maps is something almost completely outside my knowledge base.

Glad to be of service. There's also this.
