About the logo
The Empire is spread across the Milky Way galaxy and consists of almost 25 million planets settled exclusively by humans.
I. Asimov, Galactic Empire
The logo represents the Spaceship and the Sun, emblem of the Galactic Empire. The three stars on the right part represent Alpha Centauri. Alpha Centauri is a triple star system, consisting of three stars: Rigil Kentaurus, Toliman and Proxima Centauri. In Asimov's Foundation Series, Alpha Centauri is cited by Lord Dorwin as one of the solar systems where humankind potentially originated.
