This map of EVN's universe contains information on system owners, hyperspace jumps and hypergate routes.

Nova Star Map

This map additionally contains information on outfitters and shipyard and what systems wormholes are in and which direction they are located in compared to the system center.

It is presumed that the game universe of EVN is mostly set in the Orion Arm of the Milky Way. However, there is no way of knowing for sure how far into the real universe the game universe extends. That information is not given.

In the center of the map are Federation systems. To the right are Polaris systems. At the bottom are Auroran systems. At the top are Rebel, Pirate and Wraith systems. To the left are Vellos and Krypt systems.


The Map screen is one of the most basic features of Nova. It allows you to plot hyperspace jumps (up to 32 at a time) and shows information about systems you have visited, such as trade goods, government alignment, and player legal status.
