Quadrants


Our galaxy is divided into four quadrants, defined by one meridian passing through the galactic core and the Sol system and a second one perpendicular to the first, that also passes through the galactic core.

Local Space


The United Federation of Planets and its neighboring powers are located in the Alpha Quadrant and Beta Quadrant.

Sectors


A sector is a much smaller volume of space measuring 20 cubic lightyears. Sectors typically contain several stars and are consecutively numbered; some also have a label, normally, but not always, named after an important star system in that sector.
