I'd very much appreciate a more informed opinion than my own on this subject.
    Sorry, but the way I read your question with respect to 'relative location to our own sun', seems more like you mean the last star in the MW. Is that what you meant? If it is, a collision with Andromeda should add a few more.
    PS. And if you are really new to astronomy, all the stars you see in the sky are in our Milky Way galaxy alone. Can't remember when I first realised that, but I was 40+ so I wasn't meaning to be condescending if that's how it comes across.
