    2. If you are traveling by Galaxy, make your best effort to fill it up with other players and bring a fighter or Liberator escort.
  • Bio Lab Basic Base Strategies
    1. A very effective assault strategy is to land a fully loaded Galaxy on the air platforms at the wings of the dome.
    2. When defending the Bio Lab, do your best to stop attackers from using this strategy.

The Galaxy has access to six separate cosmetic customization slots, each modifying a different part of the vehicle.

Alongside the expected ability to add Camouflage and Decals, the player can modify the cockpit glass, attach extra plating to the exterior, swap out the intakes, and add a trim effect to the airframe.

Though not necessarily defined as a cosmetic, the sound of the Galaxy's in-built horn can also be changed.
