The Galactic Hub Exobiology Corps is a research organization.


The Galactic Hub Exobiology Corps is an official research subdivision of the Galactic Hub Project dedicated to exploration, discovery, and documentation of Fauna and Flora.


The mission of the Galactic Hub Exobiology Corps (GHEC) is to:

  • Discover rare and exotic fauna and flora, and as many common species as practical, within the borders of the Galactic Hub.
  • To gather the necessary information (screenshots, coordinates, spawn information, etc) for proper wiki documentation on behalf of the Galactic Hub.
  • To share such discoveries and documentation with the citizens of the Galactic Hub for their enjoyment and use via NMSGalacticHub on Reddit, the Discord server, Twitter, and whatever other methods the Galactic Hub Council sees fit to implement.

Naming Discoveries[]

GHEC Researchers will know and properly employ Galactic Hub Naming Guidelines during the course of their exploration.

GHEC Researchers should use the format "Custom Name (Procedural Name)" when custom-naming fauna, or upload the species without renaming it. Names must not include any hostile or inappropriate references; such names may be removed from GHEC records.

Joining the Galactic Hub Exobiology Corps[]

First, complete the GHEC Volunteer Form.

After filling out the GHEC Volunteer Form, the Galactic Hub Council (particularly GH Founder 7101334 & GHEC Chief Research Officer Phaedrus29) will examine your volunteer application and, if possible, evaluate your wiki skills and any other relevant information.

The goal of the application process is to analyze your proficiency in wiki documentation and location of fauna species in-game. Your skills will not weigh heavily on whether or not you are accepted, but will determine what projects you are assigned to.

After an application is processed, applicants may be contacted directly in periods of few applications, or notified en masse via a Reddit thread notifying applicants in periods of many applications.

Galactic Hub Rare Creatures[]

The three rarest and most prized creatures tracked by the GHEC in Galactic Hub space are the Greater Mushroom Beetle, the Mega Rangifae or Mega Diplo, and the Mega Lesser Mushroom Beetle.

The entries below are a record of all of these rarest species discovered and properly documented thus far in the Galactic Hub. It will continue to be updated as new creatures are discovered and their creature pages created. (See the Fauna Hall of Fame for an overall list of the largest and smallest fauna discovered in No Man's Sky.)

Hierarchy / Rank System[]

Only the LE, CRO, or LFS-7’s may issue promotions. All ranks have certain criteria that must be filled in order to be eligible for promotion. Other factors to be included in promotions include time in service and time in rank.

The GHEC is organized into a hierarchical rank structure as follows:

  1. Lead Exozoologist (LE): This rank is reserved for the Director of the Galactic Hub. The Lead Exozoologist maintains authority over the GHEC, and has final say over all exploration and research endeavors.
  2. Chief Research Officer (CRO): This researcher is the Director of the GHEC. The Chief Research Officer is responsible for all fauna research matters relating to the Galactic Hub and oversees all GHEC operations. This rank will run the day-to-day operations of the GHEC and serves as the intermediary between the Lead Exozoologist and the rest of the GHEC.
  3. Lead Fauna Specialist (EC7): This rank can only be appointed by the LE or the CRO. It can only be achieved if someone occupying the rank retires or is removed so as not to overwhelm communication with the CRO. These researchers command an expert level of knowledge of the game’s genera, and possess an ability to create, edit, and maintain wiki articles. They are authorized to conduct official recruitment activities across various subreddits and social media. These researchers will have authority to direct lower ranks and report and advise directly to the CRO.
  4. Senior Fauna Specialist (EC6): These researchers are highly proficient in independently discovering and classifying rare species and in creating and editing wiki articles. They possess at least an intermediate knowledge of the game’s genera and may conduct official GHEC fauna research without assistance. Additional duties include instructing lower ranks on proper fauna identification and proper wiki documentation practices. They report directly to the LFS’s.
  5. Fauna Specialist (EC5): These researchers are highly proficient in independently discovering and classifying rare species and skilled at creating and editing wiki articles without assistance. They possess general knowledge of the game’s genera.
  6. Fauna Researcher (EC4): These are researchers who are proficient at properly documenting discoveries independently and are skilled at discovering and classifying rare species for documentation.
  7. Fauna Analyst (EC3): These are researchers who have documented discoveries but are not yet fully proficient at wiki documentation and who are skilled at discovering and classifying rare species for documentation.
  8. Hunter (EC2): These are researchers who have just begun documenting discoveries with guidance and are capable of discovering and classifying rare species for documentation.
  9. Scout (EC1): These are recruits who have not yet received training in proper documentation and discovery of species.
