Summary[edit | edit source]

The Galactic Trading Company (GTC) is a company in No Man's Sky that is led and owned by the founder fd_df.

The GTC has focused on the areas of science and profit, with further specializations within the areas. Within science these lie on agronomy, gas harvesting and exploration. In the profit segment, trading in agricultural products and trade items on the Galactic Trade Terminals is the main business. The science section has internally a special status in the GTC and is called the GTC Science Division (GTCS). The GTC represents all activities of the GTC and GTCS.

History[edit | edit source]

Background[edit | edit source]

The founder's ancestors were founding members of a terrestrial trading company that explored and traded different cultures. Over the years a trading power developed - with ups and downs - which disintegrated after several centuries because of wars and political issues. History has been passed down from generation to generation and it has always been the principles of science and trading that have been handed down.

With the opening up of space, the founder of the GTC set out to spread these principles.

Foundation History[edit | edit source]

The founder was an interloper from the beginning of interlopers. He started his way looking for rare metals to sold, made a few million units to start the endless expedition through the galaxy. The time went by and a new carrier as farmer occurred. While the first acid production of its kind made him a wealthy interloper and got him his own giant freighter for greater expeditions, he became a farming expert with high developed products. From this point the expanding of its farming activity was one of the main activities from day to day and he was discovering more and more but still knowing so less of the Euclid galaxy.

The continues expanding in the science sector with the Atmospheric Science Center enabled the founder to create new products with gas and build up a bigger production to finance his expeditions. The ongoing professionalization let to the formation of the Galactic Trading Company between the terrestrial spring and summer of 2019. The company defined a naming guideline for new systems to track its activity in the Euclid galaxy.

Galactic Hub Project[edit | edit source]

There is currently no official connection between the GTC and the Galactic Hub Project except the registration of the CEO in the census. There is a representative outpost under construction on the planet Orgete Aioik in HUB10-6A Quetzalcoatl's Sun.

Naming Guideline[edit | edit source]

Since the professionalization of the field of exploration, all discovered systems are to be named after the GTC Guideline and equipped with an index. The Index includes the information about the company, domestic faction, economy type and wealth of the system.

Faction[edit | edit source]

The partial index for the Faction is the first letter.

Faction Partial Index
Gek G
Korvax K
Vy'keen V

Economy[edit | edit source]

The partial index for the Economy are the first three letters of the type.

Economy Partial Index
Trading Tra
Advanced Materials Adv
Scientific Sci
Mining Min
Manufacturing Man
Technology Tec
Power Generation Pow

Wealth[edit | edit source]

The partial index for the wealth is in three stages.

Wealth Partial Index
Low -1
Medium 0
High 1

Example and Additions[edit | edit source]

The home system of the GTC is used as an example for the naming guideline. The system Rebinkan is a Korvax system (K) with the economy Minerals which is in the Mining type (Min) and Affluent wealth which is high (1).

The resulting index with the company information is GTC_KMin1 and is combined with the system to (GTC_KMin1) Rebinkan. The following new name of a system can be whatever a friendly interloper want to choose. Due to an issue concerning the documentation, in-game there are used square brackets and in the wiki round brackets.

Currently the GTC sees no need to indicate the Conflict Level of a system.
