My best guess would be Andrometa. It sort of has the same shape and not too far away, which of course would be totally ironic.

I'm going with Triangulum Galaxy. It has the right formation, looks relatively organized, and makes a pretty picture. Also, it has one of the better names.

I'm going to have to go with NGC_2419 for a few reasons.

First off, new Eden dosen't resemble a milky way type galaxy, due to it's size and layout of stars.
For example, the center stars don't comprise of super giant stars. The stars are randomly scattered and dosen't form long spiral arms. There is a lack of super massive black hole in the center. There is only 7500 star systems, unlike the usual billions...
The size of it is very small...
If I was infront of a computer I could go into great details. BUT I'm at work on my Iphone wanting to stab it with a sludge hammer...

Anyone with an iPhone try...just try and write anything on these forums, then you'll know my pain!

I'm adding a vote for Dwingaloo. It sounds like the type of name the MMO player who was in charge of the first expedition (And we would be, wouldn't we?) would pick. Probably so they could write back to their friends and say "C WUT I DID THAR?" replete with Beavis / Butthead type snickering.

Hmm, I will call the M82 galaxy or rather some remote cluster of stars that is a bit removed from the main body of the galaxy.

Milky Way - cluster on opposite side, same time scale as us, except 20 thousand years in the future (or whatever).

Please don't go down the time travel route, it's the toilet flush of Sci-Fi - you know it's over and the authors have run out of ideas with backward time travel and altered timelines.

Forward timetravel is ok - but never back Roll

So the EVE Galaxy is this one, just a different part of it Big smile

Well, its not part of the Spurty-nebula .. that's just a slap and tickle from the Milk-way

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

It's obvious that EvE is in the Samsung Galaxy.

In the original story... maybe from the old intro, I forget, it was said that travellers to New Eden stared at alien skies, that they couldn't match what they saw to any known galaxies or systems seen from the colonised parts of the milky way. It was also said that New Eden could even be in a completely different dimension.

So I vote for none of those because whatever galaxy the New Eden system is in, is completely unknown to us... New Eden is the equivalent of unknown (wormhole) space to us. It could be on the other side of the universe, it could be a few thousand light years away hidden, it could be in the past, the future or in a completely different dimension entirely.

But basically, no one knows... that's my vote.

Also, we have really dumb names for these galaxies. There are two many slow ones and not enough round ones and one more than too few of the bright ones. If I had designed this it would have been at least several times more pretty and slightly more useful.

Also again, I like contests. You had a good idea!


The winner with seven likes is Kietay Ayari.

Chribba did not pick a galaxy from the list and he has enough isk as it is! Cool

Isk will be sent in due course.

The ever so slight problem with your theory is we only have access to a tiny part of our galaxy. You can see the galactic core out in 0.0.

Just to let you know, the area we play in, in EVE, is not a Galaxy. The 7500 systems we have access to are known as a star cluster, and are just a tiny tiny party of the overall Galaxy that that star cluster lies in. This is what I mean when I say the idea of even exploring an entire galaxy is really hard.

Edit >_> ops someone already explained that above me.

Also hooray!

New Eden doesn't have nearly enough stars to be a galaxy (The Milky Way has ~400 million stars). It's a small stellar cluster.
