Stuck Again!

Only clues 1 and 2 remain in this puzzle for me. The others are scratched out (but show here for your reference).

I've tried substitution for clues 1 and 2, but nothing on the grid can be substituted into clues 1 and 2.

I've tried to see if there are any matches within sub-squares where only two items have two spots open. Nothing.

I've tried to see if a line in one sub-square compliments a line in another square. The last one I found was row "MKP 427" compliments "43 Light Years" which meant in the top middle sub-square, I could put an X for that match-up.

The only math was taken care of already. So no notes to take and calculate.

Anyone have an idea of where to go without doing "What If?"

There are several more eliminations possible in clues #1 and #2 not yet shown on the grid (assuming the rest of your grid is correct - haven't checked that).

MKP 427 is either 41 or 47 light years. From clue #1 that means 295,000 mi. is either 45 light years of 41 or 47 (MKP). So that X's out 43/295k and 49/295k, and since Theros is 49, we can eliminate Theros and 295k. That leaves Theros as either 281k or 345k.

On to clue #2... we know MKP 427 is either Ereph or Zhezios, so that means 281,000 miles can only be Rodul, Ereph or Zhezios. That allows us to eliminate Cheelia nad Theros from 281,000 miles, which then gives us a TRUE value for 345,000==Theros.

Haven't taken it past there, but that should open up the board for you a bit.

That freed it all up. Thanks.
