@ Mytran

That´s some very comprehensible reasoning you did there and I´m always for doing a few calculations, too

 Mytran wrote: Maybe we should look at a different measurement unit, for example: 1 Parsec = 30,856,775,800,000 kilometres If each of the 6 divisions of a grid square represented 5 trillion kilometers, then each of the units that the "5000" refers to would be a billion kilometers. A whole grid square would be 30 trillion (30,000,000,000,000) kilometers, not too far off a Parsec. This makes the neutral zone about 1 Parsec deep (a comfortable distance from Romulan Space) and spreads those stars out a lot more. Plus we have a neat metric system with each unit onthe chart representing a nice round number (one billion kilometres) (...) Then again, it is an Earth map that we see, so Earth measurements would not be too unexpected!
I can totally get on board with that, makes sense to me.
