Galatea is a rich, agricultural, nonindustrial garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts and high-grade living conditions due to a bustling economy.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Inverness Subsector of Far Frontiers Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Galatea is named for its vast oceans and storms.

  • Discovered in 439 by independent explorer Mathias Farnha, the planet possesses over 5000 islands which are mostly unstable due to geologic "tides" in the planet's crust.
  • Though rich in minerals and possibly some heavy metals, mining is virtually impossible because of the violent activity of the faulting crust.
