Just as a general heads-up...

For the past week or two I've been working on translating the RECONS list of 100 nearest stars into something more meaningful for RPGs like Traveller or 2300AD - into galactic co-ordinates and distance in parcecs. I was actually doing this with Traveller in mind, but I've now got an accurate list of locations for these stars in X,Y,Z co-ordinates in the J2000.0 epoch as well. (the ones in 2300AD were taken from the Gliese catalogue that used the 1950.0 epoch, IIRC).

This image shows a 'top down' view of the space around Sol, looking down on the galactic plane from "above", extending for a radius of about 6-7 pc in all directions. It doesn't show the vertical relationships between the stars, but they can be found at all 'heights' above and below Sol. Each grid square there is 1pc x 1pc.

I'm just showing it off here as a work in progress so far and just in case anyone here is interested, and I'm not hoping it'll be incorporated into 2320AD canon.

EDIT: I had some Traveller specific stuff here, but I cut it out and posted it on the IISS board as a separate thread - so please go there if you want to comment on that part!

I'll try to get a webpage set up about it when it's done anyway (with all the X/Y/Z coordinates too), if people are interested.
