    Location of Serenity Station

    Post by HareBrained on Thu Feb 26, 2015 11:55 am

    We've been talking on another thread about whether there's a map of Serenity Station's surroundings and the Badlands and so on. I've just been searching the forum for anything about Serenity's location (using the "search within a domain" feature on AltaVista, handy thing sometimes). This is all I found..

    I can't find any maps: if there was one, I've a nasty feeling it may have gone down with STOgeek.com. All I've found is this sketch-map of the Badlands, http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/File:Badlands_map.jpg , and this from the thread Soooo...about that whole war-thing...

    JarHok wrote:Yep Serenity Station is located right next to the Badlands, if you want something more concrete well put it this way we are closer to the Badlands than DS9 which is somewhere nearby.
    Also for example imagine yourself standing on the station promenade and you are looking out of the window you would be able to see the Badlands.
    Serenity Station is located in the Faheena system there about and also approximately near by the planet Nivoch just to help with bearings.

    That's all based on this galaxy map (the link in that thread doesn't work but I found one that does): http://www.civfanatics.net/uploads9/Star_trek_map2.jpg

    I also definitely remember it being said that Serenity was "between Steel River and the Badlands", though I can't find that bit now.

    There's also this site, I don't know if you're aware of it: https://malsmaps.wordpress.com/2013/09/07/sto-sector-maps-one-big-map-to-look-at/ And another page on the same site suggests that a day's travel at warp 7 or 8 would be very roughly 20 light years (one sector's width) - placing Serenity somewhere in Cardassia Sector, if it's 1 day from DS9.

    If no other map's turned up, I could have a go at drawing one up based on that, just a rough one. Seeker, what do you think?

    now that also questions where do we place the gate? they where on their way back from Drozaana near kilgon space to the South east so the gate might be the opisite side of the badlands form Serenity.

    Yes, let's use the malsmaps.com map.  Only problem with it is, it's so big that it takes a while to load - at least on my connection, which is acting up a little at the moment.  I might post a cut down version at the tope of the Badlands thread, covering just the areas that appear in that.

    I think you've mistaken where the Klingon Empire is.  Drozana is right down at the other side of the map, where I've marked with a green circle here.  So the Iconian Gateway would be somewhere along the line between there and Serenity (though not necessarily a dead straight line given that space probably isn't 100% "flat" and the True Way were trying to lose them all the way).  Or are you saying that they went clean past Serenity and the battle took place beyond there?  

    Pyriel, where did you think it was/where do you think it would give the best story for it to be?

    Surprise!  Malize of malsmaps.com has unexpectedly just PMed me these detailed versions of BAjor and Cardassia Sectors - I didn't know until now that those ones had been done.  
    The way these maps work: the stars (dots) are all real stars, labelled with their astronomical designations; the colours indicate star class (red dots are red stars); locations in the series have been identified with real stars in the right place, and the Star Trek names are shown in red. Grid lines are 1 LY apart.

    I remember it being two weeks, but going by the rule of thumb (from the same site) of 20 LY a day, two weeks would be much too far now I lok at this map, so let's say it was a week whether it was or not. The freighter was damaged and would be going slow, but that would still put them a considerable way from Serenity, it would make sense for it to be in Aldebaran or Donatu sector (nearer to Drozana than to Serenity). ...Unless of course we retcon that. There's always that as a last resort.

    long ways away but dose not mean serenity ships could not go their
    Ah, I get you. No, perfectly reasonable for them to have been at Drozana, what I was thinking was just that since Srenity's on the Drozana side of the Badlands, it wouldn't make sense for the gate to be on the opposite side of the Badlands from Serenity.

    Actually, that makes a lot of sense - it was Oberon-A, a top-class Starfleet ship, that made the journey from Drozana to where the gate appeared, and come to that she might have been some distance from Drozana itself already when she got the message to go after the True Way ships. Whereas the journey from the gate to Serenity, which took a week, was made by SS Trudy, a freighter of unknown age and capacity and suffering engine damage - so it can justifiably be fairly near Serenity - and yes it should be in Serenity's back yard so that it's for us to deal with. Decision's yours, Seeker? I'm fine with whatver you decide.
