Team Galactic, formerly known as Team Galaxy, are a semi-transparent silver and white team introduced in Marble League 2016, and are currently represented by Cosmo, Starry, Astron and Pulsar, with Quasar joining them as the team reserve in 2018. The team hosted Marble League 2020.

Known for their consistency in the Marble League, Team Galactic hails from the Galactic National Space Center in Galakonur, working there until their entry into the Stardust Classic in 2014. They would debut in Marble League 2016, finishing 11th with a bronze medal to their name. They would finish in 5th for Marble League 2017 inspite of their poor start to the season, in part to Starry's performances in the season. Team Galactic had an unremarkable 2018, finishing in 11th, before finishing in 8th for Marble League 2019, despite placing themselves in the top 3 mid-season. In Marble League 2020, Team Galactic put up a remarkble run of consistency, as they placed between 4th and 9th for a majority of their events, and finished in 7th after a slow start to the season. Team Galactic would miss out on Marble League 2021, after finishing last in their qualifying group. Overall, Team Galactic has won 7 medals in the Marble League, accumulating a combined 509 points.

Team Galactic has also enjoyed relative success in Marbula One, as they clinched two golds and two silvers across both seasons, and finished in 5th and 7th in Season 1 and Season 2 respectively. In addition, they are also one of only two teams who has never missed out on a Marbula One Grand Prix, alongside the O'rangers. Team Galactic is also well known for their association with the number "5", as they finished 5th in Marbula One Season 1, before finishing 5th six times in Marble League 2020, followed up by a 5th place finish at the 5th Grand Prix of Marbula One Season 2. They also finished in 5th place for Marble League Showdown 2021.

History

Pre-Marble League

The four original members of Team Galactic

Team Galactic come from the city of Galakonur, renowned for its scientific advancement, especially in astronomy. The four original members of the team met while working at the Galactic National Space Center located in the heart of the city. The four worked together, bonding over their love for marble sports which had been their high school and college day pastime.

In 2014, Galakonur announced it would be hosting an athletics competition, the Stardust Classic for teams of four marbles. Cosmo and Astron signed up immediately, and invited Starry and Pulsar to join them. The four entered the tournament under the name "Team Galaxy". The team dominated the competition, winning nearly half of the events, and came away with high finishes in the others. During the competition, Team Galaxy became close friends with the Solar Flares. After the competition, the Flares visited the Galactic National Space Center to meet Team Galaxy and their families.[3] The success of the team led to fame throughout the nation, bringing news coverage and praise to them. The news was even more remarkable as the city was not well-known for its sporting achievements.

While Team Galaxy were visiting the Solar Flares in Meteorine[3], Jelle Bakker announced a new competition, the Marble League, with the inaugural season commencing in 2016, the region almost unanimously chose Cosmo, Astron, Starry, and Pulsar to compete for them. The team submitted an application and Team Galaxy were accepted.

The very popular "Galaxy Toothpaste™"

The team were to compete in the Marble League using their original name, "Team Galaxy". However, the Galaxy Corporation, known for their toothpaste, saw the name as a threat to their brand and threatened the team with legal action. After intense negotiations, the team decided to change their name to "Team Galactic" days before the competition started. The confusion with the name led some fans to wrongly assume the team were sponsored by the Galaxy Corporation. In fact, this led to a spike in the sales of the company's products, especially the toothpaste. After the name change, rumors spread about a promotional event between the team and the Non-Descript Video Game Company, but both parties denied these rumors.[1]

2016

Starry wins bronze in the Sand Rally

Team Galactic started off Marble League 2016 as a middle of the pack team, coming in the middle of the standings. They received their first medal, a bronze, through Starry's performance in Event 4, the Sand Rally. This took the team into seventh place overall. Team Galactic continued to stay within the top ten of the standings with mixed results, but most notably a fourth place finish for Starry in Event 7, the High Jump. However, the team finished Marble League 2016 in 11th overall due to the scoring system that heavily favored podium finishes. This left the team disappointed but ready to do better.[1]

To thank the Solar Flares for their support, Team Galactic supported the Flares in their endeavors in regional marble sports leagues across Marblearth.[3]

2017

Team Galactic win their first gold in the Hurdles

Team Galactic returned to the Marble League in the Marble League 2017 Qualifiers. A third place finish in the Funnel Spin, along with consistent high place finishes led the team to qualify in fifth. However, the team had a poor start to Marble League 2017, coming last in Event 1, the Funnel Race, and 15th in Event 2, the Long Jump. The team were discouraged, but managed to turn things around. In the third event, Fidget Spinner Collision, they came eighth, moving up to fourteenth overall, and in Event 5, Hurdles, Starry managed to secure the team's first gold medal. The team jumped to eleventh overall.

Starry overtakes Clementin to win their second gold in theSand Rally

Team Galactic continued to have mixed results, with highlights including a fourth place finish in Event 7, Block Pushing, and a fifth place finish in Event 9, Steeplechase. By the time the final event came around, Team Galactic were 11th again, eight points adrift of the top half, and unable to finish in the top three. But then, in the final event, the Sand Rally, Starry won the team another gold medal, with Starry completing a famous last-minute catch-up, passing Clementin just before the race was over. Team Galactic rose to fifth overall at the conclusion of Marble League 2017, their best performance so far. With this performance, Starry became the first athlete to gain two individual medals in one Marble League, and the first athlete to reach 50 individual points in a single season. In a show of love for their team, Starry invited the rest of the team onto the podium to celebrate with them.[1]

2018

Team Galactic beat the Crazy Cat's Eyes in Curling

Team Galactic were joined by Pulsar's younger sibling, Quasar, who became the team's reserve member for the Marble League 2018 Qualifiers. Competing in Group A, the team performed exceptionally, consecutively finishing on the podium in the first three events. This earned the team a guaranteed qualification for the main tournament before the final event. However, in the final qualifying event, the Halfpipe, they ended up finishing in last. The team dropped to second in their group at the conclusion of the qualifiers.

Team Galactic on the podium for Bobsled

Unfortunately, Marble League 2018 did not go very well for Team Galactic. The team started off poorly and spent most of the season on staying in the bottom half of the table. A slight relief of a silver medal came in Event 4, Bobsled, which carried the team to eighth overall. Afterwards, the team dropped back to the bottom half of the standings with more poor finishes. Despite a few notable performances, such as a sixth place finish for Starry in Event 7, the Snow Rally, and a fourth place finish for the team in Event 11, Ice Hockey, Team Galactic could not get into the top half of the standings throughout the competition. Cosmo was eliminated in the heats of the final event, the Sand Mogul Race. Team Galactic thus concluded Marble League 2018 in a disappointing 11th place. Cosmo was especially disappointed with this, starting to feel that the fans had lost faith in them and the team. This led to discussions about dissolving the team and retiring from marble sports, but ultimately the team decided to stay in the Marble League.

Team Galactic started to show promising results in two offseason events. Astron came fourth in the 100 Meter Water Race, and the team made it to the semi-finals of the Amazing Maze Marble Race. The team also hired Black Hole, Astron's former track coach, as their new coach.[1]

2019

Pulsar during the Underwater Race

Team Galactic participated in the Marble League 2019 Qualifiers and continued to impress the fans with strong finishes in all but one events. The team's best performance was a first place finish for Pulsar in the final event, the Underwater Race. The team qualified for Marble League 2019 in second, and earned themselves the title of "Preseason Champions" as they had performed consistently well in the Qualifiers for the past three years.

Team Galactic beat the Oceanics at Block Pushing

Team Galactic started off Marble League 2019 with middle of the pack results before earning their first medal of the season, a silver medal in Event 7, Block Pushing. A fourth place finish for Pulsar in Event 8, Summer Biathlon, took the team into third overall at the halfway point of the competition, the first time that the team had ever entered into the top three. Unfortunately, after this point, the team's performance took a massive hit. Starry received a minor injury during the Block Pushing event, leading them to miss out on Event 9, Hurdles Race, which they had previously won. Quasar was called in to take their place in the event, where they came third in their heat and finished in 14th overall.

Cosmo on the podium for the Sand Rally

Team Galactic continued the second half of the League with sub-par performances, except for a fourth place finish in Event 12, Rafting, leading them to enter the final event in the familiar 11th for the fourth year in a row. The final event, the Sand Rally, is the event which Starry had dominated in Marble League 2017, but they decided to forgo the event as they had been exhausted due to their hard crash in the earlier Dirt Race event. Team captain Cosmo was selected as they had been training with Starry for the last year. Much to the fans' surprise, Cosmo managed to finish second in the event, winning them their first individual medal, a silver. The team concluded Marble League 2019 in eighth overall.

The Marble League 2020 host announcement

Black Hole, unbeknownst to the rest of Team Galactic, submitted a bid to host Marble League 2020 shortly after the end of Marble League 2019. Team Galactic were announced as hosts at the end of the Marble League Showdown 2019. The team initially thought it was a joke, but were ecstatic when Black Hole confirmed their announcement as hosts. Astron was absent when the initial teaser image was released as they had been on a special mission for the Galactic National Space Center (and their second space adventure), visiting the International Space Marble orbiting around Earth. They were notably the first marble athlete to go to space.[1]

2020

Marbula One Season 1

A few months later, Black Hole received an official letter from the JMRC inviting the team to take part in Marbula One Season 1. The team accepted and selected the team's fan favorite Starry, and Pulsar. Both of them adopted the nicknames "Ursa Superior" and "Cosmic Ray" respectively, to represent them. Their reveal poster was designed in cooperation with the Galactic National Space Center to be as scientifically accurate as possible.

Starry wins the first Marbula One Grand Prix at the Savage Speedway

Starry made their debut at the Savage Speedway Grand Prix, qualifying in second. They went on to win the first ever Marbula One Grand Prix. Pulsar made their debut at the next Grand Prix at the O'raceway. Unfortunately, they only managed a twelfth place finish, dropping the team to fourth overall. Starry followed this up with a seventh place finish at the Momotorway Grand Prix, keeping the team in fourth. Pulsar qualified in ninth at the Hivedrive Grand Prix and managed to win the race, taking the team into second overall.

Pulsar wins at the Hivedrive

Starry started the second half of the competition with an eighth place finish at the Greenstone Grand Prix keeping Team Galactic in second, one point behind the Hazers. Pulsar did not qualify well for the Short Circuit Grand Prix and the Razzway Grand Prix, but managed an eleventh and eighth place finish respectively. The team had been in fourth and had a chance to win the season's team championship. Unfortunately, Starry qualified for the final Grand Prix at the Midnight Bay Circuit in 14th and finished the race in 15th. Team Galactic finished the season in fifth thanks to their strong performances in the first half of the season. The team were the only team to have both of their racers win a GP.[1]

Marble League 2020

Team Galactic lighting the Marble League flame

Since Team Galactic were the hosts of Marble League 2020, they automatically qualified for the competition. The team finished in each position once during the four events of the Marble League 2020 Friendly Round, finishing in second overall. Royal Stardust invited the Solar Flares to watch the competition. They landed in Polaria and helped Galactic prepare the Andromedome and trained together.[3]

Team Galactic during the Newton's Cradle

At the beginning of Marble League 2020, it looked like things were heading for the worst for Team Galactic, repeating the problems of last year's hosts, the Oceanics, finishing in 15th in Event 1, Balancing. Event 2, the Halfpipe saw the first of what would become a familiar finishing position: fifth place. Fans were happy to see the improvement but would start to become wary of the recurring fifth place finishes. The first highlight of the games came in Event 4, the Newton's Cradle, in which the Marbula One duo Starry and Pulsar won a silver medal.

Quasar during the High Jump

The rest of Marble League 2020 saw top half finishes but no more medals. This period saw another five fifth place finishes, including an infamous run of three consecutive fifth places from Event 6, the 5 Meter Hurdles, to Event 8, the Triathlon. The closest the team got to winning another medal was in Event 13, the High Jump, where reserve Quasar finished in fourth. This was matched by Starry in the final event, the Marble Marathon despite a poor qualifying. Team Galactic finished their home games in seventh overall.

The team returned to Galakonur for the offseason where they received overwhelming support from their fans and the inhabitants of the city. At a Q&A session the team announced that they would be hosting a reunion with teams from the Stardust Classic in the Andromedome.

Team Galactic started the competition with a fourth-place finish in Block Pushing. Their first medal came in the third event, Black Hole Funnel, where Astron and Pulsar won a bronze medal. Cosmo would go on to win gold in the Sand Rally and Starry won a gold medal after a ten second victory at the Starlit Speedway Grand Prix, confirming Team Galactic as the victors of the Stardust Classic Reunion.[1] After the end of the Marble League, Cosmo and Quasar went to the International Space Marble, with Astron joining them soon after along with famed Marble League Reporter Stynth.[4]

Marbula One Season 2

Team Galactic were invited to participate in the second season of Marbula One. They accepted, and again sent out Starry and Pulsar. Team Galactic had a terrible start to their Marbula One adventures, as Starry finished 14th in the Minty Mania Grand Prix, leaving the track without any points. At the O'raceway Grand Prix, Pulsar did not fare much better as they also scored 0 points, sending Team Galactic down to 17th place as one of four scoreless teams.

During the qualifying round of the Honeydome Grand Prix, Starry put up a subpar performance, as they barely qualified at 15th place overall. Facing all this pressure from the fans and the team, Starry was feeling upset before the start of the Grand Prix. Black Hole pulled Starry aside and gave them a pep talk before the race. Despite the poor starting position, Starry slowly but steadily overtook everyone from 15th to second, and made a crucial block to finish in second. With this silver medal, Starry sent Team Galactic to eighth place overall. Another seventh place finish from Pulsar, and yet another fifth place finish for Starry placed Team Galactic in sixth place overall, with Starry and Pulsar now being in fifth and 22nd place respectively in the individual championship. However, a lackluster performance from Pulsar at the final Grand Prix of 2020, dropped Team Galactic to seventh place overall at the end of the year.[1]

2021

Marble League Winter Special

Team Galactic were invited to participate in the Marble League Winter Special in January of 2021, in which they failed to impress. Black Hole was hesitant as they wanted Starry and Pulsar to focus on Marbula One training but decided the team building would be beneficial. They traveled to the Himarblelayas in a private jet belonging to Atlas, the chief architect of the Andromedome. Rumors had been spreading that Atlas had been asked to be the team's manager which was proven true when Black Hole announced the signing of the new team member before Event 1.

During Semifinal A in Event 1, the Ice Dash, Momo from Team Momo hit the buffer, and rebounded, hitting Starry and causing them to ricochet off the track. Both Starry and Momo were given medical checks. Starry finished in eighth. Then, Astron participated in the Snowboard Cross which they finished in fourth, one of their best individual performances. Cosmo then suffered a disastrous run in Speed Skating, finishing the race in dead last. A ninth place in Bobsled, followed up by a fourth in Ice Hockey, losing to the Savage Speeders after double overtime. Team Galactic finished the short competition in a disappointing tenth.

The team returned to Galakonur to continue training. With Atlas taking on more managerial duties, Black Hole had more time to train the team. The team took a road trip to the Startop Mountains. They stayed in a small village at the top of the Peak of the Cosmos where they trained hard, working on teamwork.[1]

Marbula One Season 2

Team Galactic returned to Marbula One Season 2 at the Raceforest. Despite another poor qualifying, Pulsar put up a stellar performance to finish fourth, lifting Team Galactic to sixth overall. After an 11th place finish by Starry in their next Grand Prix, the team were in fifth (again) after the eighth Grand Prix of the season at the Momotorway. Pulsar then started well at the Palette Park Grand Prix, after clinching a P3 to start the race. However, they made a mistake during the sixth lap of the race and they finished 12th, dropping Team Galactic all the way down to tenth. Starry managed to rescue the team by finishing fourth in the Misty Mountain Grand Prix.

At the Savage Speedway Grand Prix, which they had won in the previous season, Starry qualified mid-pack in 11th, and stayed between fourth and fifth for most of the race. However, they made a charge for the podium during the final laps of the Grand Prix, overtaking Prim from Team Primary and Ocean from the Oceanics, and they finished second once again, behind Red Eye from the Crazy Cat's Eyes, who clinched the individual championship and the team championship. This performance lifted Team Galactic to sixth overall with 92 points, with them finally being in a podium challenge on the final day for the first time in the team's history. However, a dead last finish by Pulsar at Midnight Bay would cause Team Galactic to drop down to seventh to end their campaign. Starry finished fourth, nine points off third place Yellow Eye, while Pulsar finished 29th, with Starry clinching exactly three times more points than Pulsar.

The team returned to Galakonur feeling downhearted but determined to bounce back for the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers. They spent a lot of time training in the Andromedome which had been remodeled to house the Starlit Speedway.[1]

During the off-season break, Cosmo, Astron, Quasar and Black Hole returned to the International Space Marble, with Starry and Pulsar remaining on Marblearth.[5]

Marble League 2021

Cosmo was sent out for the Marble League 2021 Practice Race and finished 16th. The team were excited to hear their old friends, the Solar Flares would be competing in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers and they decided to book the room across from them at the hotel. They also spent time training with each other. They even spent some time together training at Sunspot Beach in Meteorine.[3]

In the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers, Team Galactic performed poorly, with only nine points at the end of the third event, 10 points adrift from qualification. In the final event, the Sand Rally, Cosmo was chosen to compete over Starry. They could only manage a sixth place finish, dropping the team to last in their group. The team failed to qualify for Marble League 2021, missing out on the Marble League for the first time in their history.

The team returned in Marble League Showdown 2021. Astron brought the team early success by claiming a gold medal in the first event, the 5 Meter Sprint, the team's first gold medal since 2017. A string of middle of the pack finishes put them in second overall at the end of the first half of the Showdown. Unfortunately Team Galactic started the second half by getting three consecutive ninth places, dropping the team to sixth overall. Starry managed to once again show success by finishing second in the final event, Marblocross, which was enough for the team to once again finish in 5th place.

2022

Marbula One Season 3

Some time after the Showdown, Team Galactic received an invitation to compete in Marbula One Season 3, which they accepted. Due to Pulsar's subpar performance in the previous season, they were replaced by Cosmo, with Starry being retained for another season. Team Galactic had a great start to the season as Starry qualified in 3rd at the Tumult Turnpike Grand Prix earning one extra point as a result. During the race, they would only fall 2 spots and finish the races in 5th. Cosmo was selected to take part in the Sleet Street Grand Prix. However, they failed to replicate their teammate's success in the previous race as they qualified in 16th and finished the race in 15th being one of 6 marbles (along with Pinky Panther, Prim, Bonbon, Glimmer and Crush) that were lapped by eventual race winner Smoggy. Despite this, Cosmo earned 1 championship for placing 15th in the race.

Trivia

  • Team Galactic were one of only six teams to qualify for every Marble League up until 2021. The others were the Savage Speeders, O'rangers, Thunderbolts, Oceanics, and Mellow Yellow.
    • This ended in 2021, when they finished dead last in their qualifying group.
  • Team Galactic were the first team to win three medals in the same event, the Sand Rally. Starry won bronze in 2016 and gold in 2017, while Cosmo got 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: The first one broken by Yellow from Mellow Yellow, the next by Speedy and Rapidly from the Savage Speeders; the third and the fourth by Razzy from the Raspberry Racers.
  • Upon being selected as the hosts for the Marble League 2020, Team Galactic became the first team to qualify for their fifth edition of the tournament.
  • In the inaugural season of Marbula One, Team Galactic became the first team to win a Grand Prix after Starry took the opening race at the Savage Speedway.
    • They also became the first team to win two Grands Prix, and the first to have both of their racers win one Grand Prix each after Pulsar won the race at the Hivedrive.
  • Team Galactic were the first team to never finish in the bottom four in a season. They achieved this feat in 2018, and only the Midnight Wisps (2020) have done it since.
    • The Lead Cube Award assesses teams based on how many 16th, 15th, 14th, or 13th place finishes they received in a season. Team Galactic were the first team to receive 0 points in one of these.
  • They hold the current record of not getting last place in 55 consecutive ML events, as their only last-place finish in the whole ML history was at the first event of 2017.
  • Team Galactic also hold the record for the longest active gold drought in the Marble League (44), with their last gold medal being Starry's famous Sand Rally gold in August 2017.
  • Team Galactic, along with the Oceanics, have participated in every Qualifiers or Friendly Round since Marble League 2017 and finished in the top half in all of them, until the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers.
    • Both teams ended the streak in 2021, as both teams ironically finished dead last in their qualifying groups.
  • After the end of Marble League 2020, Team Galactic became synonymous with the number "5", as they finished in 5th overall in Marbula One Season 1, before finishing in 5th place 6 times in Marble League 2020, including a 3-in-a-row 5th place finishing streak. They also achieved a 5th place finish in Marble League Showdown 2021.
  • Team Galactic is currently one of only three teams to qualify for every single Marbula One race that they were eligible to compete in. The other two teams are the Crazy Cat's Eyes and the O'rangers.
