Map incorrectness?

According to the site story, Earth is the Empire’s capital, so you would expect it to be near the center of their borders, right? But the earth is in the Orion arm, a small arm. The PvE map shows a small arm very similar to this, but it is corewards from the neutral territories between the factions. ???

They should change the art or come up with an explanation in the story.

Interesting suggestion, i am interested to hear the full story of the ‘Star Conflict’ as well.

There’s quite a lot of story on the site, if you’re interested, along with a backstory of sorts about most of the maps.
