What you're missing here is that Known Space as it exists at this point in UF is not the galaxy entire, but something more along the lines of a wedge of it. Yes, the Outer Rim refers to the outer edges of the galaxy, and yes, the Coreward Frontier refers to the core, but not the entirety of either. I'm pretty sure it's modeled fairly closely to the charted space in Star Trek, though it's not like we have a real solid reference map or anything like that.

You're right! Only, which way do they go? ;) Our Heroes, much like the Russians, tend not to do anything without a plan.
