Most folks flying from the West Coast to Europe know or care that the plane follow a "great circle" route. Most who might give it a second though probably think the planes just head east over New York and the Atlantic.

What are you using as your source of Traveller to real stars? I've got a list going too, and it's a mix of canonical mappings and conjecture, but even at that there are a number of nearby real world stars that as far as I know don't have Traveller counterparts. Here is my map of <=6 pc space. Traveller names in large black text, associated stars in smaller red text and smaller blue text represent stars that do not have (to my knoweldge) Traveller analogues.

Is the cube 6 pc on a side, or are the start within 6 pc of Terra? (thus the cube being 12 pc on a side)
