This command shows a map of the galaxy. Icons on the map represent various worlds and fleets. Each world has a different icon depending on its class. In addition, the type of the world is represented by a symbol in the lower-right corner of the icon. Objects that belong to your empire are white. Enemy objects are depicted in red.
Use the mouse to select worlds and fleets on the map. Information for the selected object will appear on the left-hand close-up pane. Hover over the edges of the map to scroll in the desired direction.
Use the arrow keys to move the selection from sector to sector. Use the space bar to select different objects in the same sector (for example, if a sector has two fleets and a world, the space bar will select each of the three objects in turn). The [Home] key always selects the capital of your empire.
Once an object is selected you can issue orders to it through the menu. For example, you can select a fleet and then choose Fleet/Set Destination to order the fleet to move to some other world.
