The bonus situation is horribly.
e.g. Shadow Empire, Vorlon Empire, Asgard, Ori; incredible high bonus for nearly no territories. Totally out of balance (e.g. Asgard: 15bonus for 3 territories)
ETA: this causes extreme unbalancing in early games, as someone might get lucky and gets a large bonus after his first turn.
Tell Q to stop meddling!
Planet H <-> Khosla
Pegasus <-> Atlantis
Halowan <-> Alaskan
Borg transwarp network connections.
Incorrect connection: Borg Transwarp Hub 4 <-> Kessel
ETA: If this is on purpose, why does no other transwarp hub have a connection to a non-bordering country? And why are the transwarp hubs not interconnected?
If you've got the balance better, I'll gladly reconsider my vote.
Review by Nathan on 10/11/2013.
The bonuses are extremely skewed (and extremely large). Moreover, each bonus area appears to be virtually duplicated. For example, Sector Alpha 4 and the United Alliance of Evil include exactly the same territories. It's almost like the creator used dummy territory and bonus names and forgot to remove them when he/she put in the real ones.
There are several missing connections. I would also like to see a graphic marking the Bajoran wormhole because it came as a total surprise to me when I stumbled onto it.
Nevertheless, this map has great potential. The layout is challenging and the bonus areas themselves are manageable. I recommend taking the time - at least once - to manually adjust the bonuses so that it is playable. One easy method is to reduce all the creatively named bonuses to zero and simply retain the Sector area bonuses. You'll probably also want to adjust the superbonuses to make them smaller and more equitable throughout.

Love the map. Probably should be played with army cap though, due to the insane income.

During my game, the balance was immediately thrown off.

I want to love the map, but besides the unbalance of the bonuses, there are a lot of unexplained connections, I figured out the warp gate and worm hole, but Atlantis does not connect to one of its adjacent territories, and this happens all over the map, just something that really bugs me.
Review by Christian 'Thor' Picard on 10/11/2013.
I totally agree with Krulle: bonus highly unbalanced, to the point the map in unplayable.
I you start in a nice spot, you can easily get 150 troops/turn around turn 15 while the others get a much more smaller bonus (something around 50 to 60/turn)...
For the moment, I give 1 star.
