interesting someone finally raised this. I second the motion to create a more sophisticated display that visually represent the solar/celestial structure. The current one just fail at reflecting the beauty of universe.....

This idea isnt exactly a new one. People are discussing this for a very long period and hoping for expanded universe.

Well, ostensibly the (lore) premise for the game is that humanity still hasn't traveled outside our solar system yet, hence why everything on the solar map is either a planet in our system or a moon or large asteroid (every celestial body we visit is an actual location in the solar system right now taken from an astronomy textbook).

The exception (IIRC) are dark sectors, which are (I believe) extrasolar bodies that are only visited by using the solar rails to slingshot beyond the reaches of the Solar System into the Dark Sectors (which is the canon name for space beyond the solar system). Dark sectors are represented on our solar map by the Solar Rails instead of their actual extrasolar bodies.
