Team Galactic (formerly known as Team Galaxy) is the almost transparent brown and white team introduced in MarbleLympics 2016 and is represented by Cosmo, Starry, Astron, and Pulsar. Team Galactic placed third in the 2017 MarbleLympics Qualification round and earned the first bronze medal of the season. Quasar also became a member of the 2018 Winter MarbleLympics. The team was a huge favorite to win the 2018 Marblelympics, with the team taking first in a few Power Rankings, but they ended up underachieving and faltering. The team qualified in second for the 2019 MarbleLympics and had a great first half to the season before falling apart in the second half.

Cosmo, Starry, Astron, Pulsar and Quasar are the current members of Team Galactic.

MarbleLympics 2019 Edit

Team Galactic Logo

Team Galactic's original logo for the 2019 season, designed by Hersh.

The team qualified in second for the 2019 MarbleLympics. They got off to a strong start, finishing consistently high in the first eight events and reaching third place overall at the halfway point of the season. However, the team performed poorly in the second half (with rafting and Cosmo's silver in the sand rally as the only two exceptions) and ended up finishing in the middle of the standings.

Team Name History Edit

Before the first official MarbleLympics in year 2016 the team competed under the name "Team Galaxy". But after gaining popularity it got almost sued by the brand "Galaxy™". After intense negotiations the team ultimately changed its name to "Team Galactic", as still known today. It was however allowed to show its former name during the opening ceremony, which left many fans in confusion.

A fair amount of followers assumed, wrongly, that the team is being sponsored by the brand and has accepted a partnership. Because of that many supporters bought all kinds of products of the Galaxy brand but most of all the "Galaxy Toothpaste".[2]
Toothpaste

The very popular "Galaxy Toothpaste (tm)"

This led to increased sales numbers for the product and strengthened the already good relationship between the brand and the team. In fact, the rumors about a sponsorship deal never stopped and still can be seen in different newspapers and magazines on a regular basis. 

Trivia Edit

  • Team Galactic coincidentally shares its name with the villainous team from Pokémon Diamond Pearl and Platinum.
    • Team Galactic is together with Team Plasma the only MarbleLympics teams who share their names with a Pokémon villain team.
  • Team Galactic are one of only seven teams to qualify for every MarbleLympics so far. Alongside the Pinkies, they are one of only two teams to qualify for every MarbleLympics without ever placing in the top three.
  • Team Galactic are the only team to win three medals in the same event, the sand rally. Starry won bronze in 2016 and gold in 2017, while Cosmo won silver in 2019.
  • Before 2019, Starry had a plethora of individual marble records including: most successful individual marble (69 pts), best medal count by individual marble (2 gold and 1 bronze), most points earned in one year (50 pts, 2017), most medals earned in one year (2 gold, 2017). Amazingly, all of these records were broken in 2019 by a variety of marbles from other teams.
