I think they missed an opportunity to make the map look much better. The original Catan looked a bit like an island but because they tried to copy that look, this looks nothing like a space map. Instead of big different coloured planets I think the should have gone with space features. Maybe nebula, red star system, yellow star system, asteroids, etc with a black hole in the centre. This way the map would have looked like actual space.

Check out the expansion. The new map in there was modeled off some of the charts from the series.

They missed an opportunity when they decided to base this on regular Catan instead of Starfarers, which has spaceships travelling across the board, not as replacements for roads.

I recommend this as well. They are based off the star charts in Capt Kirks ready room if I remember correctly.

Also agree with this assessment - in fact, I'd go as far to suggest that without the Star Trek map expansion this variant probably isn't worth owning.

Thanks for the responses and the expansion maps do look better. It's a shame they're fixed though as I do like building different maps with the tiles.
