Use your superior technology and great fleets of starships to re-unite the surviving factions of the once great human empire!
Game play in Galactica is a matter of building starships, and using those ships to colonize the galaxy, protect your territory, and defeat the other players in combat. Your level of technology is crucial. Higher levels of technology allow your ships to move faster, and give them an advantage in combat over ships with lower tech levels.
Your star systems also defend themselves from attacking ships based on their level of technology.
