Starting civ placement is going to be interesting. The map won't be 100% canon with regard to distance (it would be WAY TOO BIG if it was), so regions that were never featured will be compressed (meaning anything that isn't the Alpha Quadrant and parts of the Delta Quadrant, particularly the region between the Gamma and Delta Quadrants). I want to make the distances still large enough to make the wormholes useful. Unfortunately large maps get very slow very fast. I plan for a slightly larger than huge map based on the spiral galaxy map script (if I can figure out how to get denser solar systems I'll do that too).
