So future writers writng books have to use the map wehn writing about space travel?
Who's going to force them? (If CBS Consumer Products decides that asking all authors to use the new maps is a good idea, then yes. But can they force authors to buy a set, or must Pocket and IDW supply copies to every new writer who comes along?)

But, similarly, Pocket once asked all its authors to use the Okudas' books as definitive sources for spellings for a period - except that they contained typos (eg. Catuallan for Catullan; ShirKahr for ShiKhar) and inconsistencies!
