Here is a 3D map of the stars of local space. The Terran Colonial Authority is responsible for some 40 star systems, spanning an area about 35 light years across. Only six worlds in four of these systems (the yellow G-type stars Sol, Alpha Centauri, Tau Ceti and 82 Eridani) have planetary colonies, but numerous others have small outposts, both temporary and permanent. Usual commercial jump routes are indicated in green.
This map is based on actual star location data. To reduce clutter, I've removed many small stars not along the major trade routes, but I've included a few of the brighter, more distant stars (like Altair) for location reference.
