GalNet is an interstellar aggregator of market information and galactic news. It provides the latest information on in-game events and stories. GalNet can be viewed while docked at any station and through the Galactic Power Standing. GalNet news is also on the official website. The slogan is 'Your Galaxy In Focus'.
The Pilots Federation derives the bulk of its wealth from the GalNet data network. Originally a system of ship, bounty and star-chart data, it evolved into an interstellar aggregator of market information and galactic news. By 3300, the Pilots Federation was not only the dominant provider of this information, it was also the main manufacturer of the hardware and software serving this data. Today, Pilots Federation systems are fitted as standard on virtually all independent starships.
Over the centuries this allowed the Pilots Federation to grow into one of the dominant financial superpowers of the galaxy through its GalNet data network.
Originally a star chart, ship data and bounty management system, GalNet has evolved into an effective galactic infrastructure providing news, market pricing and acts as a communication system for pilots.
