Mapping service. Universal Cartographic is a major galactic organization right? It is unlikely that its representatives will open one of their offices on your fleet carrier. It would be more plausible to install a data storage module, data center, server Bay, or the like on the FC. The researcher will be able to upload their data about the galaxy and systems there and then, upon arrival at the station, transmit the data to Universal Cartographic. On FC, data will be stored even if the player dies. That is, in fact, all the same, only more reasonable and logical.
