This page covers the timeline of the Galactic Hub civilization.


Summary[edit | edit source]

2016, Oct 30 - Founding Day[edit | edit source]

  • The initial concept of mutually beneficial, cooperative, localized exploration would prove to be a backbone for all future Galactic Hub ventures.
  • An acknowledgement is also made to the fact that the Galactic Hub came from the NoMansHigh and NoMansFans subreddits.

2017, April 9 - Official Flag & Emblem Adopted[edit | edit source]

  • The Galactic Hub's flag & emblem were officially adopted after a community vote. The designing artist is Torsten Hartmann, aka morgvom_org.

2017, April 15 - United Federation of Travelers Founding Day[edit | edit source]

  • The Federation would become a guiding force in Galactic Hub policy and politics, particularly in reinforcing documentation specifically on the Gamepedia Wiki.

2017, April 16 through 18 - Harsh Buds War / The Bez-Harr Incident[edit | edit source]

  • The Galactic Hub became an unwilling staging ground for a conflict between two civilizations. (This "conflict" was done in fun, lore / image-based, and before the days of multiplayer PVP options.)
  • Galactic Hub officials encouraged peace.

2017, August 20 - Renaissance Era[edit | edit source]

  • First migration to a new region of space (Shungka Void) due to the impending Universe Reset
  • Galactic Hub Council formed
  • Galactic Hub Renaissance Cup - Exocraft racing tournament across various tracks

2018, June 30 through August 3 - ARK Project and NEXT Generation Galactic Hub relocation scouting[edit | edit source]

  • Galactic Hub council members and other Hub members who applied for and were approved for the ARK Project traveled to the new Hub location in advance to establish the HUB1 region and name all systems prior relocation. Over 500+ systems in HUB1 were named and tracked with a shared Google spreadsheet. (Read-Only Copy of Spreadsheet)
  • PS4 User Gainsdalf found the Top of the Tree 3 (ToTT3) but accidentally gave system default name of Rastand-Ink due to the pressure to name it properly and created the ARK Proejct members' inside joke of "Gainsdalfing".
  • Several other base sharing mechanics and testing was done during this time to help Hub members including testing of limits, farms, teleportation, and traveling to the new region.
  • HUBer was also coined at this time too and still is the most effective way to get to the Galactic Hub without having any warp upgrades.

2018, August 3 - NEXT Generation Galactic Hub: The Arm of Vezitinen[edit | edit source]

  • The Arm of Vezitinen region announced as new core region of the civilization, with plans to avoid relocation in the future.

2018, August 16 - New Lennon Announced[edit | edit source]

2018, August 19 - Galactic Hub Emblem Datamined[edit | edit source]

2018, August 30 - Galactic Hub Emblem Added in First Community Event[edit | edit source]

The Galactic Hub emblem, by morgvom_org, in-game.
  • Galactic Hub Decal was added as an unlockable item in the Quicksilver Store in the first community update event. This was widely celebrated by the Hub community, and likely provided the most significant sense of canonization of all prior in-game acknowledgements of the civilizations.

2018, December 1 - Tropical Colony Interloper Island on Axby Delta Opens[edit | edit source]

  • The Interloper Island colony on Axby Delta was announced to the Hublic.
  • The Council had already constructed their homes on Axby Peak by this point.
  • Interloper Island / Axby Delta was the Galactic Hub's first non-capital colony, marking a major focus and use of intentional, localized, multiple-player building which had previously been limited only to the single capital system, HUB10-6A Quetzalcoatl's Sun, mostly New Lennon.

2018, December 21st - Winter Colony Mount Loper Opens[edit | edit source]

  • The Mount Loper colony began accepting applications on this day (the Winter Solstice).
  • Applicants were accepted until each platform reached 25-30 confirmed uploaded bases on the planet.

2019, June 11 - Parzival Raceway Exocraft Racing Event begins[edit | edit source]

2019, August 15 - Galactic Hub Beyond[edit | edit source]

  • Galactic Hub Beyond thread outlined the civilization's hopes and plans for the new era, including live-multiplayer restaurants and Galactic Hub Industries production colonies.

2019, August 18 & 19 - Galactic Hub Beyond Council Meetups[edit | edit source]

  • The Galactic Hub Council met on these days in the HUB10-150 Bowie system to take group photos and celebrate the beginning of a new era.

2019, August 24 - Logra Lake Diplo Ranch Colony on Jolivi Opens[edit | edit source]

  • This was the second Galactic Hub Industries production colony, after the lesser-publicized Darkstar Mining on planet Ashes to Ashes, system HUB10-150 Bowie.

2020, October 1 - Various Colonies Close Due to Origins-Era Fauna Extinction Event[edit | edit source]

  • As detailed in this thread, various colonies were closed following the Origins Update-era fauna extinction event, which rendered all fauna previously inhabiting the simulation as extinct.
  • This included the capital colony on New Lennon, the tropical Interloper Island colony on Axby Delta, the Logra Lake Diplo Ranch colony on Jolivi, and the winter colony of Mount Loper. These colonies were all based on the presence of now-extinct Rangifae (diplo) fauna being present, except Axby Delta, which was established due to the presence of a Greater Mushroom Beetle.
  • All colonies unaffected by fauna extinction events remained open.
  • This marked the first official closure of any Galactic Hub colony, although capital colonies like Drogradur NO425 (Pathfinder) had been informally abandoned in the past.

2020, October 1 - Rave Colony on Electric Diplo Carnival & Lepios Opens[edit | edit source]

  • This colony was designated for bases which made heavy usage of lights (especially flashing lights) and Bytebeat Devices.

2020, October 10 - Halloween Colony on Treehouse of Horror Opens[edit | edit source]

  • This colony was designated for bases with "spooky" themes appropriate for the Halloween season.

2020, October 26 - Voting Begins on the New Capital Planet[edit | edit source]

  • Following the closure of the old capital colony New Lennon on October 1, a series of new capital candidates were proposed by Galactic Hub citizens in this thread. These votes were arranged into an official poll [1].

2020, October 30 - Drogradur NO426 Announced as New Capital Planet[edit | edit source]

  • Following a community poll which received 239 votes, 107 (44.8%) went to Drogradur NO426, 64 (26.8%) went to Kadannin, and 38 (15.9%) went to Erquanti, with the remaining votes dispersed among lower-polling candidate planets. Thus, Drogradur NO426 was officially selected as the new capital of the Galactic Hub, as announced here.

2020, November 10 - United Federation of Travelers Emblem Datamined[edit | edit source]

  • 2017, March 25 - German gaming journalism website Gamepro published a (largely inaccurate) article on the Hub, [No Man's Sky - Wie sich die Community das Versprechen vom Multiplayer selbst erfüllt (How the community fulfills the promise of multiplayer itself)]. This article mentions odd practices that aren't known to actually occur, like selling the location of NMS gold deposits for real-world money.
