I thought I saw something once that said (TNG at least) actually had techno-babble guys. Like the script writers would stick [technobabble] on the script and some dudes would come along later and get some serious warp-bubble deflector inertial dampening jiggery pokery going on. Might be bullshit though.

I don't know how it's done formally, but it seems the only reasonable way for the solar system is to define it as the sun, or the centre of the sun. Seeing as it's the SOLar system ;)

For the galaxy it's probably better to define it as a region. Sagittarius A is the supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy with a few million solar masses. Good a place as any to stick the 'centre' pin I reckon.

It's amazing that stuff like this and flat earth beliefs are still out there. These nutters are immune to evidence.
