Question Distances Between Star Systems

Maybe I've missed something in reading through the Mongoose 2300AD book, but is there any reference for the distances between star systems?

The Arm maps show the useable links between systems within 7.7 ly or less of each other, but do not show the actual distances. Yes, I know the distances can be calculated using the x-y-z coordinates in the Near Star List, but is that really the only reference, to let us figure the distances ourselves?

I've lost my old Traveller 2300AD map, but IIRC it had a number on each link line showing the distance. Is there any reference like that still in existence?

This was done for 2320. Note that it's a "topology" that shows the usable pathways so it won't match up to the maps in the rulebook. As near as I can tell it's accurate.

As mentioned in the thread below this one, Aleph's site has an excellent series of pdfs showing clusters and distances to them for a significantly expanded NSL series. It's one of the most inspiring, in terms of game ideas, documents I've come across for 2300.
