Summary[edit | edit source]

Official flag of the Galactic Hub.

The Galactic Hub Project is a Civilized Space community focused on exploring a specific area of the Euclid galaxy with other players. This includes the Rentocniijik Expanse and 10 specific surrounding regions as follows: [1]

  1. Rentocniijik Expanse - The core region of the Hub, star systems names use the [HUB-R-###] convention
  2. Eapustafiges Adjunct - names start with HUB2. Example: HUB2-V-156 Lianara's Curse
  3. Nagkamunti Band - names start with HUB3. Example: HUB3-K-124 Procedural Star

The capital system of the Galactic Hub is HUB-G-211 Lennon, location of Drogradur NO425, a lush planet with a ~6m diplo species. The capital system, in the Rentocniijik Expanse region, can be found at these coordinates:


The Galactic Hub Project is a member of the United Federation of Travelers.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

Pilgrim Path Known Locations: 4 Samples from November 20th - January 22nd (plus blank app image). Note the Hub's growing density.
Galactic Hub Regions Rentocniijik Expanse and surrounding regions. Numbers correspond to those used in star system naming convention (e.g. HUB7)

While not possible to see other players directly, you can still see and visit their bases, as well as interact with their Communications Stations. The Hub's close proximity and high density of players have a number of other advantages as well.

  • Available starships are often cataloged, making it easy to look through available ships and purchase the one you want.
  • Easiest place to locate Communication Stations left behind by other travelers.
  • A variety of fauna, flora, and geological attractions.
  • Economic benefits, such as known locations which pay 100%+ for Albumen Pearls.

Naming Convention[edit | edit source]

Those in the Galactic Hub can choose to follow its optional naming guidelines. These allow other travelers to quickly identify desirable aspects of a system or planet, such as noteworthy fauna, resources, or ships.

Subfactions / Related Groups[edit | edit source]

Galactic Hub Hilbert[edit | edit source]

The Galactic Hub's sister civilization, Galactic Hub Hilbert, can be found in the Hilbert Dimension. Visit that page for more info.

Galactic Hub Science Corps[edit | edit source]

The Galactic Hub Science Corps is an association of players in Galactic Hub space who are interested in researching so-called "Hub Science" - measuring specific, often subtle aspects of the game. Early examples of "Hub Science" would be the Subprojects, studying topics like weather, time, stellar region shape, and repeatable changes in the visual appearance of certain elements of solar systems.

Science Officers receive a unique badge (Ψ) on the Galactic Hub Subreddit and, also through Reddit, will be notified of any new Hub Science projects or discussions. Science Officers are never required to participate in any study or discussion and are always free to spend their time however they choose, but you should only sign up for the Science Corps if you're interested in actually engaging in discussions and studies when possible.

You can apply for the Galactic Hub Science Corps in this thread or message 7101334, Galactic Hub founder, on Reddit.

Known Star Systems[edit | edit source]

For a list of known systems, visit the Galactic Hub Project category index or use the link at at the bottom of this page. Any beginning with the "HUB-R-###" format tag are systems, where R is the letter representing the race.

Known Space Station Vendors with Core Upgrades[edit | edit source]

"Core upgrades" refers to upgrades which are not "Coolant," "Damage", etc. Essentially, if it doesn't end with the words Sigma, Tau, Theta, or Omega, it's most likely a core upgrade (with some exceptions, such as Photonix Core, a Pulse Engine upgrade).

Best Starships[edit | edit source]

Note that all "ship pieces" are only aesthetic and have no effect on how a ship functions. The exceptions are Cockpit Windows, which change how far you can look left or right while in your ship, or certain pieces which indicate a ship may have more or less slots.

Only a ship's class (Hauler, Fighter, Explorer, Shuttle) or grade (C, B, A, S) will affect its stats such as Damage, Shield Strength, Warp Range, and "Critical Health."

Freighters[edit | edit source]

A Freighter with the same style and number of slots will always appear in any given system during the "Pirate Space Battle" events. Additionally, other freighters can be found in certain systems, such as the relatively rare "ball-nosed" freighters.

Fighters[edit | edit source]

Haulers[edit | edit source]

Explorers[edit | edit source]

Best Multitools[edit | edit source]

Known Portal Locations[edit | edit source]

The Elysium portal.

(Only for Portals marked with Communication Stations - also include PC/PS4, unless you know it's marked on both systems.)

Interlopers[edit | edit source]

Image by reddit user Sylvester_Spaceman

The official term for players exploring the Galactic Hub is interloper. The following sections relate specifically to interloper activities.

Bases[edit | edit source]

For a list of bases, visit the Player base (Pathfinder) page

Community Farms[edit | edit source]

For a list of farms, visit the Community Farms page

Racetracks[edit | edit source]

For a list of racetracks in the Hub, visit the Galactic Hub Cup page.

Known Players (Interloper Census)[edit | edit source]

For a list players who have reached the Galactic Hub, visit the Census - Galactic Hub page.

Subprojects[edit | edit source]

Subprojects are specific research projects within the Galactic Hub. These usually focus on furthering understanding of No Man's Sky in some quantifiable fashion (such as understanding the exact time of dawn and dusk).

The purpose of Subproject Chronos is to understand the effects of time in No Man's Sky. A greater understanding of time in NMS may help with knowledge regarding weather/temperature patterns, the activity of fauna (as some are nocturnal or diurnal), and possibly other applications.

The purpose of Subproject Nimbus is to understand the effects of time in No Man's Sky. A greater understanding of weather in NMS may help with the creation of a No Man's Sky weather app.

The purpose of Subproject Atlas is to gain a better understanding of stellar clusters, better known as Regions, in No Man's Sky. Additionally, this subproject seeks to find a location in-game where the Rentocniijik Expanse is clearly visible in the night sky of a planet.

The purpose of Subproject Eden is to gain any meaningful understanding of the mechanism or purpose behind certain visual (and possibly characteristic) changes which can occur within a system, and seemingly be triggered by players.

Maps / Navigational Aids[edit | edit source]

Alliances[edit | edit source]

Emblem for the Federation.

(Refer to Civilized space page for more info)

The Galactic Hub is a founding member of the United Federation of Travelers. We assist and cooperate with all civilizations, but will always prioritize fellow Federation civilizations. Historically, we have worked most closely with the Amino Hub, and also have a close alliance with No Man's Sky Love.

Embassy Systems[edit | edit source]

Embassy Systems are single systems claimed by the Galactic Hub in another civilization's space. Embassy systems have a few purposes:

  • Dedicated teleportation point between that civilization and the Galactic Hub for whoever claims the system, or anyone else who makes the journey from the Hub to the Embassy.
  • Dedicated location for members of both civilizations (Galactic Hub and native civilization) to leave Communications Stations.
  • Display of friendship and respect in making the (usually long) journey from the Hub to the native civilization.
  • In the future, particularly if HG allows multiple bases on one character, they may be locations for Galactic Hub outposts in the form of player bases.

The names for embassies attempt to combine Galactic Hub naming conventions with local naming conventions.

Any images which don't require their own article (ie, fauna) and are not maps or navigational aids may be posted here.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • German gaming journalism website Gamepro published a (largely inaccurate) article on the Hub on March 25, 2017. This article mentions odd practices that aren't known to actually occur, like selling the location of NMS gold deposits for real-world money.
  • The Galactic Hub's official flag & emblem were chosen on April 9, 2017, after a community vote (download).
  • A number of references to the Galactic Hub and Galactic Hub content can be found on Waking Titan, the No Man's Sky-related ARG website.
