How about something like this?:

Greek Alphabet

Looks good! The one thing I don't like is using the greek alphabet to denote a specific star in a constellation. First of all, the game writes it out (i.e. Alpha Serpentis, not α Serpentis). Second of all, such notation is confusing for readers not familiar with the greek alphabet. -Fadookie 06:12, 27 Oct 2004 (CEST)

But wiki markup supports greek! Oh well. I concede, I've been out voted again. Incidentally, the .pdf map that I have uses fake latin: a for α, b for β, d for δ, etc. Epsilon and Eta get confused and then the whole thing just looks dumb. I believe that most scientific star charts use Greek, but that's of little concern. Mmrnmhrm 17:15, 27 Oct 2004 (CEST)

Yes, proper star charts do use greek, but I don't think it's appropriate here for the reasons mentioned above. Also, for races that don't have COMM screens (androsynth, humans) do you think we should use the captain portraits from the melee screen? It's also possible to use manual art in some cases. -Fadookie 04:20, 28 Oct 2004 (CEST)

I agree that we shouldn't be using the greek alphabet. ("eta" is still greek, just written out, and in the Latin alphabet) for exactly the same reasons. We can't use manual art, as TFB hasn't got the rights on them (at least the SC2 manual). SvdB 14:25, 28 Oct 2004 (CEST)
