I noticed an error in your map. Technically, the Arcturus Stream is part of the Local Cluster, as Arcturus is only 36 light years from Earth. Traveling between Earth and the Exodus Cluster requires traveling through the Arcturus Stream, but this was cut from ME1 for brevity. ME3 complicated the issue by introducing the Arcturus Stream and treating it as a separate cluster.

Ha, I was wondering that myself. Thanks for posting.  But isn't there a minor relay in Arcturus? I mean it's right there next to the station -- though it does seem odd to place the Charon Relay and the AS relay only 36 light years apart.

I was using this to figure distances on the galactic map for my post ME3 fanfic... trying to figure out how far it all is -- by measuring Sol to the center of the Milky Way (26,000 LY)  once you have that scale -- you can take a ruler and plot out the rest, but I wonder how accurate they were trying to be?

Aaand Sol is excluded from Alliance Space for what reason, again?

otvert Featured By Owner May 15, 2014
Sol in Local Cluster. Only text label is outside the boundaries of Alliance Space.

It's ridiculous that Alliance Space is so big compared to Inner Council Space, humanity have only been part of the galactic community for a few decades and they have territory that size?

Additionally, if you'd like a copy of the Grissom Academy logo to use in your map (I noticed you're using something else) you can find it in my gallery here. Let me know if you need it in a different colour or larger size.

Hi! We're currently trying to create a OC community based on Mass Effect. Would it be alright if we translated your work into Korean to help the other people understand the settings of the game? Thank you!

Yes, a bit, but Inner council space is heavy colonized, instead the Alliance Space isn't. Is like, in America, the 13 original colonies and Far West.

Well didn't the humans essentially throw the Batarians out of their own territory?
Reply
:iconpkbitchgirl:
PKBitchGirl Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2014
No, they didn't. Humanity expanded into unoccupied territory that the Batarians had been eying up which caused them to rage quit the Citadel when the Citadel refused to intervene
