Is there a centralized database for all stars, sourced from Gaia and other missions?

    $\begingroup$ There is a list of contemporary star catalogues in Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… However, bear in mind that "There are, however, billions of stars resolvable by 21st century telescopes, so this is an impossible goal; with this kind of catalog, an attempt is generally made to get every star brighter than a given magnitude" $\endgroup$ Aug 15, 2022 at 14:16

The SIMBAD database hosted by the Centre de Donnees Astronomique de Strasbourg is the closest you are likely to find to a centralised database.
