Milky Way Galaxy

From Star Trek: Theurgy Wiki

The Milky Way Galaxy is a galaxy that contains over four hundred billion stars. This galaxy generates its own magnetic field, which experiences dips and peaks. The galaxy is 100,000 light years wide.

The Milky Way's disc is surrounded by a massive energy field of negative energy called the galactic barrier, which makes travel into and out of the galaxy difficult. By 2369, the extragalactic space was being charted by starships.

The galaxy was theorized to have been created from a great explosion, and it was further theorized that its center might still be creating new matter. This theory was proved correct with the finding of the creation point in 2269. The core was surrounded by the Great Barrier, containing a planet thought to be Sha Ka Ree by Sybok.

In the science of stellar cartography, the Milky Way was divided into four major areas called quadrants: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta (the first four letters of the Greek alphabet), each of which composed one-quarter of the galaxy. Source: Memory Alpha
