I am genuinely hopeful that I won't 'need' or feel compelled to make maps for Starfinder, but I will replace maps that need it or make one when it is can be easily improved.

First map.... Into the Unknown Map C.

And a 'dark' version that it probably more suitable for the scenario.

The provided map was ok. It wasn't uniform (3 tiles on one axis, 4 tiles on another) and it looks WAY WAY too much like the platforms in the previous encounter (A). Sort of uninspired.

Anyhow, here is a potential replacement.

EDIT: It would work fairly well with a 100 pixel grid. The original map was 22 wide and this one is 2200 pixels wide.

SECOND EDIT: Considering augmenting this with some bone structures to better reflect the adventure as written.

The space tactical combat maps in INTO THE UNKNOWN are nigh well impossible to align with a hex grid, so I recreated E. THE LAWBLIGHT

Here it is in use inside FG:

Here is the UNGRIDDED version:

And the GRIDDED version for you freaks not using FG:

Having some rock-looking obstacles beats avoiding the grey, foggy areas :)

EDIT: Vertically align your hexes (tips up) and scale to 100 pixels. Then use the grid controls to bump the grid into alignment.

As part of his second map book KS (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/justinmason/the-big-book-of-maps-volume-2-science-fiction) Justin Andrew Mason has released some Pay-What-You-Want mapping tokens. Basically a few planets, starts and asteroids: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/186504/Planet-Portfolio-CutOut-Planets-for-Your-RPG-Space-Adventures?src=hottest_filtered&
