GalTech Industries Corporation

In an attempt to gain a foothold in the shipbuilding industry a small but high tech shipyard was constructed in the rich industrial system of Ceesxe located centrally in Galaxy 1. Following the successful, and some say suspicious, negotiation of a number of military contracts and the acquisition of competing shipyards in the nearby systems of Gerete and Edle both the size and capability of the company greatly increased to what is now known as The GalTech Industries Corporation.

The company now boasts a dedicated design team working on the development of both military and civilian craft and has recently branched out in to the development of hi-tech equipment and ship accessories.

The successful launch of the Chimera Gunship, Serpent Class Cruiser, GalTech Escort Fighter and most recently the Fireball in conjunction with supplying their military contracts, has allowed massive investment in both further ship development and expansion of the main facility orbiting Ceesxe.



Ceesxe features reasonably prominently in Imprint, the novel which came with some of the later versions of Classic Elite. Set circa 20 years before Oolite.

  • Ceesxe has centres selling regimes of Bio-assertion therapy (rejuvenation). Expensive and one's body cannot necessarily take it (Chapter 1).
  • It was an indication of the influence wielded by the Ceesxe Corporation, which also dominated the Leoned System and funded the dictators of Veis. Ceesxe was renowned for being the white-heat of technological developments, and similarly had a long history in GalCop politics. (Chapter 10).
  • maybe they hoped to rouse the sleeping political giant of the Ceesxe Corporation in a particular area... Ceesxe might lobby at senate for a reallocation of naval resources or possibly even a settlement with the Sanction. That was guaranteed to cause discontent between most of the galaxies in GalCop, stresses and confused priorities. (Chapter 11) The Interstellar Sanction are an inimical force who have invaded Galaxy 3 and whom the Galactic Navy are fighting.

Mossfoot's Tales of Woe...

So I finally found my way to the Akihabara of this corner of the Galaxy.

Ceesxe. Electric World. A planet whose future is so bright you have to wear shades. No, really. the entry point puts you on a direct course with both the planet and the goddamn sun. I swear to God I've spent more in glare filters for my ship than fuel, and the stupid things keep burning out on me. Was the government trying to be symbolic or something placing the witchpoint there? Is it to impress the tourists? Make it so pirates are at a disadvantage coming in?

Or perhaps, to paraphrase Jane Austin: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a planet rich in good fortune must be populated by assholes."

Ceesxe is a great place to get your ship kitted out. It is literally the most technologically advanced planet around. Rumor has it some of the techies for the Imperial Navy developed part of a working cloaking device here... which they totally don't have. Nope. Nosir. No cloaking device here. That technology doesn't exist. Please forward all inquiries to the press officer and expect four to six weeks for a casual dismissal of your question...

One of the great things about Ceesxe is they have everything. They have the best night life around, and it's always night in space. Yeah, you'll find your GalCop standard Dodec station there, but they got the new SuperHub nearby, absolutely massive in size and a breeze to dock with. You've got a Hoopy Casino floating in the safety zone if you want to waste some well earned credits on overpriced drinks from underdressed men or women. Heavily patrolled by Vipers, an RRS station nearby in case search and rescue is needed... Hell, even the Constore at the witchpoint feels extra snazzy in a deep shade of purple.

Class all around.

I decided to dock at the Superhub for the novelty for it, though I was pretty sure I'd get a slightly better price for my cargo of furs there. Mossfoots Burden drifted into the center, was gently picked up by the tractor beams, and drawn into one of the many landing tubes on the Hub's inner surface. Bliss!

Oh, I had every intention of sticking around here for a while. The only downside of a place like Ceesxe was that it didn't have many other planets nearby. I like to keep my options open in case things go pear shaped. Still, the overall stability and security made up for it.  Mossfoot (2014)

The Traders Almanach

If every Credit counts, try this: Best would be to buy microprocessors or hydraulic lifters and move them to Leoned. There is a good chance that those microprocessors I mentioned give you a margin of about 49 to 58%. On another thought, those microprocessors I mentioned can also be sold well enough in Arazaes. This is the brainwise center of the first sector. Whatever you need to buy for your ship - Ceesxe has it in stock.
