Founding[edit | edit source]

Nomenclature Policy[edit | edit source]

The original systems discovered by Alpha Expeditions in the Bizanz Cluster have no (or very little) editing done to their original name.

  • The Elisto-Vej system has only one renamed planet (Itusileus was originally designated Itusil M12).
  • The Rahvali system features many altered planets, but with only slight modification (for example, Secon X25 was renamed Secon).
  • Loogilj's only planet Uwaitham XIII was also uploaded with its original title.

After that - Alpha Expeditions formed the Trailblazer Suffix System (TSFX). This system combined the generated planet names with suffixes used in Germanic and British toponymy. Each suffix included the letter 'A' and most featured it at the beginning of the suffix. This system continued until April 22, 2019. When Alpha Expeditions absorbed its sister companies it also took over many of the suffixes and prefixes used by those branches. The rest were ceded to the newly created PS4 branch Omega Expeditions. The new system is known as the Trailblazer Nomenclature Alpha.

Alpha Expeditions nomenclature policy has been updated, although extremely similar to its predecessor. All Alpha Expedition systems will have a suffix ending in -s, -an, -on, -us, -axe, -ay, -y, ea,.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The branch was designated Alpha because the Bizanz Cluster is the first region discovered by the Trailblazer Firm; and Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet.
  • Alpha Expeditions used to only investigate one region! Beta Expeditions and Gamma Expeditions also investigated Xbox territories but were ultimately absorbed.
