For a long time, the civilizations of Ex Astris Scientia have been dazzled by the stars. But with the advent of ftl drives, these civilizations have found themselves with the opportunity to expand their horizons and satisfy their curious minds for the first time. Fueled by a passionate search for knowledge, 8 colony ships have already been built, and all they lack now is a leader to show them the way.
A relatively high technology cost multiplier makes the correct choice of technology ever more important in this galaxy. Who will get the upper hand in science the quickest? Or who will be the early aggressor to take control of the scientific capabilities of other civilizations?
The HQ is also set to start with a higher population count, and has a high production base to hasten early ship production. This might even allow some emperors to try out a novel strategy to switch to a high science planet later on should custom homeworld changes be intentionally delayed.

Speed Galaxy open for sign upPosted on 01.07.2011
We are having another Speed Galaxy coming up for this weekend - 2nd and 3rd of July! This galaxy has all advanced features enabled, and all ranks are allowed in. Tick times are as always between 1 and 2.5 minutes.
Here's a quick reminder how speed galaxies work: A speed Galaxy is split into 2 sessions, we play for 5 hours on Saturday, and another 5 hours on Sunday, so please do only sign up if you got time to play on Saturday AND Sunday!
There are 3 breaks during these 5 hours, in total you are only actually playing 4 hours out of these 5 - the rest are breaks. Everything in the game runs twice as fast: ships fly twice their regular speed, buildings and research take half the time. This way the action heats up a lot quicker!
"The frontier has gone, and with its going has closed the first period of American history," said a young historian in the 19th century Earth/Sol, short sighted and narrow-minded as the vast frontier was right above his head.
This moment, a few centuries later, all across the universe the question stands - who will be the fastest shooter of the universe and who will stop him, honorably - or with a shot in the back.
The galaxy has fairly standard settings with 4-5 planets per system, somewhat better planets and a good set of civilization and home-planet changes. Six initial colony ships should give a fast start to the action and aggression can come from many sides as a 50% score difference is allowed for attacks without reputation penalty.

Team Galaxy coming upPosted on 04.05.2011
The smell of spring is in the air, and Cosmic Supremos around the universe have set their sights on a young galaxy previously ignored by sky-gazers. Recent attention has soared in this galaxy, as astronomers have discovered new systems and allowing for more emperors than ever to test out their skills.
As it stands, preliminary HQ's have been set up, and reports are that two prominent factions will fight it out for supremacy. One of the groups, led by a seasoned campaigner, will be combining experience and eons of know-how to rein supreme, while the other faction, led by an adventurous new captain, promises to use innovative tactics and superior team coordination to upstage their more illustrious opponents.
With a few more days to go before colony ships are ready to leave HQs, the situation is getting more tense as this spring will see new, aspiring emperors join the fray for their first tastes of fighting alongside other comrades, with recruitment still ongoing. How will the new emperors fare alongside emperors who have already seen it all? This galaxy may be a steep learning curve for some, but will more than be compensated for by the amount of excitement and experience waiting in store.

Community-driven Multi-team GalaxiesPosted on 17.04.2011
The first galaxy with more than two teams have just recently finished with great success, and now the second Multi-team galaxy is under way! Here's your chance to get in early on an exiting new development in Cosmic Supremacy: A galaxy with 4 teams. We've had many regular team galaxies by now, where only 2 sides are fighting for that 'Cosmic Supremacy', but with this innovation we'lll have 4 teams challenging each other for the top spot.
With 4 teams we get an exiting new element in Team Galaxies: Diplomacy. Although this wasn't an option in the first multi-team galaxy, we have now elaborated on the rules to allow for this, and have great hopes for what it might provide in terms of balance between the teams.
However, to take part in this interesting new feature, you'll have to put in a little more effort than usual, but not much! You will have to familiarize yourself with the rules. Since the game code does not provide for 4 teams, the community have agreed on certain rules, which you are expected to be aware of and follow as the gentleman you surely are!
To sign up (and state your interest to participate), you have to read further down the thread, and post on the forum (you'll know where
We have excellent news to report from the CS headquarters: Cosmic Supremacy will stay online, and you will be able to fight with and against your friends in a galaxy of your choice! This is all thanks to a FANTASTIC community, that is stemming the burden of the server cost together!! A HUGE THANK YOU to all contributors!!
But that's not all, the game will turn to become a fully and entirely FREE game in the future, with no more premium membership to access the premium galaxies. Instead "premium galaxies" will become available to any player that has reached rank 1 or higher. This goes for all other premium features as well, they will become available to ALL players!
So CS will turn into a community-driven/sponsored game, and will continue to be administrated and supported by yours truly. There is some hope that this step will attract more players in the future, and who knows, maybe this will help the game to attract the kind of attention that it deserves! Read more...
Last Frontier Team GalaxyPosted on 09.01.2011
This galaxy has been set up a while back to commemorate the popular format of Team Galaxies, and since it is the last of its kind, it will be a pleasure for the game-creator to join this galaxy.
So that is two very good reasons for you to join, leaving you no excuse not to! There is plenty of room left, so sign up now, and make this a special galaxy!
The galaxy is planned to start its ticks on Thursday January 13th at 21:00 CET. Enter now!
Claustrophobia - Intensity CubedPosted on 09.11.2010
2 hour ticks have never moved so quickly! This galaxy is designed as a pressure cooker. All the systems are crowded with very small, very rich planets. Then all the systems are crowded as close to each other as possible in a 4x4x4 cube. Then all the home-worlds start at maximum population. Then we removed reputation so you can attack anyone, anytime. The net result? Be ready to defend yourself, its eat or be eaten. For those of you who are frustrated with the peace-loving nature of most galaxies join and test yourself.
P.S. No hippies allowed.
P.P.S. Ok, hippies can join but at their own risk.
Claustrophobia Galaxy 2 will start on Friday November 19th at 15:45 CET. Enter now!
