Players attempt to conquer the galaxy with the victory going to the empire with the most planets at the end of either a preset or random number of turns. A simpler predecessor of Reach For The Stars.

DOSPC Magazine (Dec, 1982)
The game could be engrossing if played by enough people with enough imagination to gang up on each other, or to form provisional alliances to vary the balance of power. The only thing resembling suspense in Galaxy is an occasional battle that stays in doubt until the last salvo. Watching two numbers diminish while rooting for one to reach zero before the other is considerably less than a light year's worth of entertainment. Galaxy lacks excitement and it is relatively unimaginative. Even reruns of Star Trek have more compelling sequences. Chalk up this failed version as going to the popular galactic well once too often.
