I didn't make it!
Could anyone give me a basic guide on how to start off?
Two ways you can do this:
One - the simplest, download and install Community Mod (.2 or .4), and use the ingame interface. Simply type in the name of the map.
Two - Create a blank file, and name it "unsupportedextension_mapedit". No file type, JUST "unsupportedextension_mapedit" in the Legacy root folder. Then create a shortcut of the Legacy .exe, and in the Properties/Target box, put a "-edit .sol", WITHOUT the quotes.
Example: "C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Star Trek Legacy\Legacy.exe" -edit dmajilon.sol

Also, this thread may help you as Map Editing in Legacy is similar to map editing in Armada 2.
