Galactic Star Registry

The Galactic Star Registry is a venerable organisation formed during the negotiations that led to the Treaty of Bates. outlink

The Registry is aligned with no individual polity and prides itself on its independence and the accuracy and comprehensivity of its Star Catalogue.

The Registry is based at Luna and is funded by all polities, which usually pass a share of the cost on to starship owners and operators. The actual running costs are low because the Registry has few staff but instead relies on astrographical reports from the Survey Ships operated by all significant powers.
