From the introduction:
Hokas Tokas turns off his future-vision machine and says Eamon Trek is not your ordinary adventure as it is set in the Galaxy Eamon with each space room set as a sector. Each sector is 10 parsecs cubed. Sector (7,0,20) would be 7 north, 0 east and 20 up from the main galactic barrier reference point.
He continues, "Co-ordinates go from 0 to 20 so simple mathematics tells you there are over 9000 space rooms! But some sectors have stars with habitable planets or space stations. But beware of the Nebuleans. The United Federation of Eamon occupies space from 0 to 8 up. The Neutral Zone is 9 to 10 up and Nebulean space is from 11 to 20 up. Of course, some commands have changed over the centuries and new ones have been added. Your assignment is to rescue a scientist, Dr D. Brown, who has been captured by the Nebuleans. You must complete your quest by star date 3750."
Hokas ushers you into a clear tube and retreats behind a panel, twists some dials and waves as you feel a strange tingling sensation.
Hit any key to teleport to 23rd century.
Within "the Galaxy Eamon" (the Milky Way Galaxy) space is divided into sectors of 10 cubic parsecs, each one identified by coordinates north (x), east (y), and up (z) from the "galactic barrier reference point". The adventure takes place in the coordinate range 0 to 20 which contains 9,261 sectors, many of which are empty but some of which contain habitable planets or space stations.
The United Federation of Eamon controls the space from z-coordinate 0 to 8. The Neutral Zone is from 9 to 10, and Nebulean-controlled space extends from 11 to 20.
