I'm sure there is some old episode where Kirk or Spock have said "X% of our galaxy is still unexplored" or words to that effect, but I can't think of anything now.
Me neither. In the original continuity, the figure still was just 11% explored in early TNG first season, and 19% explored in middle TNG second season - an explosive increase as such, but indicative that Kirk had plenty of galaxy left to study back in his day.
I have some fan mags from around the beginning of TNG that mention the 11% figure, and I believe they also say in Kirk's time it was something like 4%. YMMV (literally, in this case). I'll have to dig them out one of these days and confirm.
