Think smaller - that that we know most of the stars within about 10 parsecs of Sol (but not all), and beyond that we only know the bright ones. There's hundreds of M and K V stars in the space covered by the Solomani Rim sector that we don't even know exist (which is why I'd just randomise the K and M V stars in that volume).

The RECONS list is the most complete list of stars near Sol - I've converted the layout to stacked subsectors on my realistic mapping page, but that's about as good as it'll get.
