The Milky Way Galaxy is a 13 billion year old spiral galaxy spanning over 100,000 light years across and 15,000 light years deep. The Milky Way Galaxy consists of over 200 billion stars orbiting a centralized core structure. Throughout its existence the galaxy has been home to a myriad collection of governments and life-forms, starting with the ancient Preservers nearly 4 Billion Years ago, and has seen the rise and fall of multiple new empires in the recent decades.

The galaxy has been naturally divided into multiple arms; however, for astronavigational purposes, it has been further divided into four quadrants of equal size and is further subdivided into sectors.

Alpha Quadrant

The Alpha Quadrant is one of the four quadrants of the Milky Way Galaxy and dominates the southwestern region of the galaxy. At present roughly 25% of the region has been explored. The explored region is home to the Cardassian Union, the Ferengi Alliance, the Romulan Republic and the United Federation of Planets and a collection of smaller governments also vying for power.

Important Sectors

Beta Quadrant

The Beta Quadrant is one of the four quadrants of the Milky Way Galaxy and dominates the southeastern region of the galaxy. The region is primarily dominated by the Klingon Empire and the Romulan Star Empire. The United Federation of Planets also operates in the region.

Important Sectors

Gamma Quadrant

The Gamma Quadrant is one of the four quadrants of the Milky Way Galaxy and dominates the northwestern region of the galaxy. The region of space is controlled by a government known as the Dominion, whom have limited access to the region and are fiercely territorial of their borders. The region is only accessible at this time via the Bajoran Wormhole. The Dominion has recently agreed to allow the United Federation of Planets to explore the area south of the Bajoran Wormhole.

Important Sectors

Delta Quadrant

The Delta Quadrant is one of the four quadrants of the Milky Way Galaxy and dominates the northeastern region of the galaxy. For most of recorded history this region has been the home of the Borg Collective; however, with the recent damage to the Collective, a large power vacuum now exists in the Quadrant that the Supremacy is trying to fill. The United Federation of Planets has started limited operations in the region and has recently welcomed the Talaxians into the Federation as members.
