The Uncharted Territories are a large section of the Milky Way Galaxy, as shown by the fact that the several cycle long journey of Moya's crew took place almost entirely throughout them. While the Territories are part of the Galaxy, they are a significant distance from Earth. The trip takes a Peacekeeper fleet around 60 cycles to complete. The Peacekeepers have no jurisdiction in the Territories but are known to operate there regardless. The Territories are also home to a number of sentient (and less sentient) species, from the Drak to the Acquarans to the Budongs. A number of Commerce planets exist in the Territories, alongside unaligned planets, smaller organizations and outposts.
