Re: How far has Starfleet explored
I remember on that special that Bob Picardo hosted just before the "Voyager" premiere, it was said that 7% of the galaxy had been explored around the time of TOS, and an additional 15% around TNG.
Not sure what their source for this was.
I think the quote from Wesley was that 19% of the galaxy was charted. Over a million stars have been observed and charted today...out of 200-400 billion stars. Kind of makes you feel small.
