The Operation Retrieve star chart

The command briefing for Operation Retrieve included a star chart which located many prominent celestial bodies and the location of three starships in Federation and Klingon space. This chart was divided into squares. A thin black line demarcated the border between the two interstellar governments. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

A coordinate system has been arbitrarily assigned for this chart. The x-axis starts at A and ends at P (left to right), and the y-axis starts at 1 and ends at 7 (top to bottom).

This chart was seen in the film, and later was seen in greater resolution at Many of the names were clearly readable; however, some locations at the extreme right of the chart are unreadable due to the angle the picture was snapped.
Many of these locations shared their names with the last names of crew who worked on the sixth film.
