Milky Way Galaxy showing major arms

The spiral arm next closer (i.e. coreward) to the galactic core than the local arm. This fairly minor arm has been partly colonised by Terragens, thanks to the alien wormhole at Tunh

    M 31 / NGC 598. This minor irregular galaxy is located at the opposite end of the galactic core to settled space. The Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy is approximately 10,000 light years in diameter, and roughly spheroid in shape. It is adjacent to, possibly colliding with, the base of the Outer Arm. Relativistic exploration missions have departed for this galaxy but are not expected to arrive for many tens of thousands of years.

  • Sagittarius Project - Text by Anders Sandberg
    Major exploration project backed by a number of research and colonization megacorporations in the Establishment and early Consolidation era. The Sagittarius Project attempted to set up wormhole links to the Sagittarius arm and continue inwards to the galactic core. Over time, the Project developed into a megacorp-house like most others (eventually becoming the Sagittarius Sphere), and the thrust towards the core was replaced by exploiting the many new worlds found in the Sagittarius arm. Some research vessels are still on their way towards the core, and are expected back in a few millennia.
