Abstract: The Problem of formulating with intelligence the problems which may confront the navigator of an interstellar space ship is not simple. Some knowledge of the properties and performance capabilities of the vehicle being navigated is almost a prerequisite. Likewise, one should have a knowledge of the motivations which govern teh captain of an interstellar space ship. What navigational requirements and objectives are likely to be presented to the navigator? To answer these questions, some assumptions were made.
