STELLER CARTOGRAPHY

Located on Deck 4 - Middle Module (but extending up to the deck above) is easily the largest and most visually spectacular of the Agamemnon's science labs, Stellar Cartography.

Because of the relatively limited number of Federation starships (compared to the number of uncharted and unexplored stars in our galaxy), it is very important that every deep-space assigned Federation starship capable of it chart and catalog the stars that may fall under the view of her sensors. This "study what you pass near" philosophy has served the Federation scientific community well during the last two centuries, and has allowed scientific experimentation and discovery in the most unlikely of places and circumstances.

The Agamemnonís Stellar Cartography center allows visitors to display images and information on any stellar or planetarysystem in the ship's computer using the holographic projectors in this room to afford a much more realistic view of the location or phenomenon under study. The information available is constantly updated by data from the ship's lateral sensor arrays, and "real-time" study of stellar phenomenon can be done from this room.
 

The projectors are even capable of "editing out" the platform and console -- in other words, projecting star images in front of the viewer's perspective of physical objects. Physical barriers and forcefields prevent visitors from falling from the platform.
