Re: Location of the Delphic Expanse

I just rewatched season 3 of enterprise, and was looking at the star charts, I think I have a reasonable theory on the delphic expanse location.... it seems likely that both the Briar Patch and the Badlands are leftover chunks of the expanse... you can only screw with space for so long without do some kind of permanent damage, i'd think. so if we assume a sphere-ish shape, keeping Bynaus and Risa out of the expanse, we can safely assume the following star systems were in the expanse:

Bajor
Cardassia
Betazed
Trill
Boradis
Cestus
Gorn (we don't see them till season 4, in the mirror universe)
Part of TNG Tholian Space, but NOT Tholia
Sherman's Planet

and the following Nebulas/Anomalies make decent border markers:

Briar Patch
Plexion Nebula
Badlands
Mutara Nebula

I have my version of the expanse outline in a JPEG of the Star Chart. anyone know how to post it?
