I really like the idea of telling a story with a map...truly a unique idea that I've never thought of. I try to convey a feeling of emotion with mine. So I guess that puts me in the artist category as well since I had to take Algebra 3 times just to get the passing grade of C but never got less than A in those same similar classes to yours. I wonder if we all here are more or less like that?
I think we got a mix
I think we got a thorough mix here, as Torstan, for sure is a scientist. All those programmers making GIMP scripts are more mathematic than I. Heck, Arcana is an engineer. So you and I may be artists and all of us have some artist in us, but some have more science than others.
After some thought I think I'd place myself somewhere in the middle with a lean more towards the artistic - even though I am a programmer by trade I originally wanted to be a graphic artist. Ahh, the long, lost dreams of youth. :)
Heh GP, while I do some programming I actually always had troubles with my math :)

If you design some nice gears/clocks as keys or if you can handdraw some fine maps in the end its about creativity and art :) The way doesnt matter in the end if someone likes your result :)
Update and Extra Credit!
I was looking at the background (galaxy) of the map and noticed some problems with the blend between solid black and starfield, so I repaired that section. I added an Alliance logo to the bottom right of the map for a finishing element. Still needs work though.
For extra credit, I created a map object of the Icarus ship and I also created a single deckplan for the Icarus as well. Enjoy!
