The Introduction to Navigation that came with the Star Trek Maps

Star Trek Maps was an in-universe reference work published by Bantam Books in 1980. It was the first Star Trek publication devoted to stellar cartography with fold-out maps, and was released five years after small region maps appeared in the Star Fleet Technical Manual. Subsequent works incorporating 22nd and 24th century information would be released in Star Charts (2002) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library (2013).
