That makes sense. But they would first have to establish the exact direction and velocity of other systems, stars, planetoids, astroids, etc. Right? Like if Miami was the center of the galazy, and a frighter off the coast was traveling south at ten miles an hour, and you found another ship while out in your boat. To know where the ship will be at a specific point in the future you will have to know which direction it is going, as well as its speed, etc. But what about gravity wells, astroid fields, solar winds, and the like diverting it off its path randomly. Again in a small area it would not be noticieable, but in something as vast as the universe itself.....

In both Star Wars and Star Trek, they only traveled in their own galaxy, not the universe. But, the answer to your question is yes and no. Yes, as in knowing the location, speed, direction of movement, and mass of all the objects would be necessary for proper navigation. There is a way of making navigating the galaxy more consistent, however: you can treat systems as being roughly one unit on large scales. For example, you can treat all the solar system as one unit, everything from the sun to the kuiper belt, when you're in interstellar space. When you need to move within a planetary system, however, you can 'zoom in' on that system, and then show the movement and masses of objects within the solar system for navigation purposes. Also, with things like the asteroid belt, you can treat the systems as roughly planar, and just treat it as a band of impassable space, and go over it. Doesn't work so well for the kuiper belt, which is more like a bubble, but a manned ship with sensors of modern capabilities will be able to navigate it by hand.
