Relatively new here, but I'll keep this simple. How often do new sectors and planets become available on the galactic map to colonize? Will I expect more places to open up to the public as the admin creates them, or do I have to risk traveling somewhere on the map that doesn't have coordinates and see if I'm lucky enough to find a new system? Or maybe the case is that there aren't any open planets and I have to negotiate to buy my own at a later date? Just curious as to how that works.

New systems are constantly being added. However, they are not visible on the galactic map until someone physically visits them. So yes, you will need to search through many deep space coordinates before you find a new system if you are lucky. If you do get lucky, you will have seven days to secure it before the system becomes publicly visible on the galactic map, and others might attempt to colonize the planets.

On this, if there is a sector with no systems inside it, can anyone confirm or deny whether a sectors existance means there is a system inside it? Will there be empty sectors in the universe with no systems to be found?
I just look at the galactic map and there is plenty of empty sectors with no systems in them yet, just seems a waste to build a sector if there is nothing inside it anyway?
I'm sure all the sectors will eventually have something in it if they do not already. new systems are being added all the time, so even if a sector has been fully searched it does not mean a system won't appear there later.
No. Stars only exist within a system, so if you find no system there will be no stars (or anything else really). Of course you could just find a system that is purely suns, as what happened with the first system that was discovered.
