Political Map

The Delta Quadrant is the common designation for one-quarter of the Milky Way Galaxy. Its boundary is defined by a meridian passing through the galactic core and the Sol System, and a second meridian 90° perpendicular at the core. Its closest point to Earth is located approximately 30,000 light years away.
