The Route of the USS Voyager
  1. Table of the route
  2. Explanation on the table

 

This is a mere collection of figures concerning Voyager's journey through the Delta Quadrant, including an explanation of the single table columns. All coordinates have been completely revised in version 4, due to the use of more precise figures for Voyager's bearing and the distance Earth-Galactic core.
A more extensive description of the journey summarized by the following table and of the different locations, the premises, problems and consequences, plus  possibilities to calculate the momentary speed you can find in chapter 5 of the Star Trek Cartography
The journey of Voyager.

2. Explanation on the table

Remark - Description of the location of the journey or the event which causes the change of distance.

Time - the stardate and the conventional date of the event, sometimes also a time span.

Distance - the distance covered due to the event, the total already travelled distance (since April 2371) and the remaining distance to Earth in light years..

Position in the Galaxy - The absolute position of Voyager in the Milky Way, determined by trigonometry from the starting position of Voyager in the Delta Quadrant and her linear course to Earth. The coordinates are based on a Cartesian planar coordinate system with the upper left corner (0;0) and the lower right corner (100000;100000). In this system, Earth is located at the coordinates (50000;74000).

Cartesian position - absolute position coordinates of Voyager in a different Cartesian planar coordinate system. The zero-point of the system is located in the center of the Galaxy, and the 4 quadrants correspond to the 4 Galactic quadrants (Alpha=III, Beta=IV, Gamma=II, Delta=I). Consequently, the system has the advantage that the Galactic quadrant can be easily determined by the sign of the x and y coordinates: position in Alpha Quadrant - x negative, y negative; position in Beta Quadrant - x positive, y negative; position in Gamma Quadrant - x negative, y positive and position in Delta Quadrant - x positive, y positive.

Polar position - The absolute Galactic position of Voyager in a polar coordinate system. The point (0;0) is again located in the center of the Galaxy, but in this system, the position of the star is unambiguously determined by its distance r to the point (0;0) and its angle phi (between 0 and 360, counter-clockwise) between the x axis and the line passing the position of the star and the point (0;0). Consequently, the galactic quadrant in which the star is located can be easily determined by the angle phi: Delta Quadrant -  phi from 0 to 90; Gamma Quadrant - phi from 90 to 180; Alpha Quadrant - phi from 180 to 270 and Beta Quadrant - phi from 270 to 360=0.
