Galaxy City was destroyed as part of The Coming Storm in Issue 21. An "Echo" of the zone is accessible through Ouroboros which allows characters to travel to a version of Galaxy City before the meteor strikes there and still earn the existing Exploration and History badges as they would have in the past. All the previous contacts and NPCs were "rescued" from the destruction and relocated to Atlas Park. The Arena and Architect Entertainment buildings are closed, but the Hospital and Freedom Corps HQ are still open.
Galaxy City was a densely populated region, with a business sector to the north, a warehouse district to the south, and a park with a small lake in the southeast. The Freedom Corps building is also in this zone.
Like Atlas Park, the Hellions street gang had moved into Galaxy City in force, and the Clockwork were also active in a slightly more covert fashion. Heroes of security level 1 through 6 worked to keep the peace in Galaxy City.
The entrance to the Echo of Galaxy City can be found by going behind the main building in Ouroboros. You will will find an Ouroboros Portal in front of the med porters.
Galaxy City was a small, sheltered district near the heart of Paragon City. It was a densely populated region located between Independence Port to the west and Perez Park to the east. Galaxy is south of the financial towers of Steel Canyon and north of the industrial warehouses of Kings Row.
Galaxy City was perhaps best known for its tributes to fallen heroes. Several breathtaking statues were found scattered throughout the district, reminding the residents of those who gave so much of themselves for the people of the city. The sculptures were all dedicated to heroes who made the area their home, and include Wayland, a self-proclaimed descendant of a Norse hero; Cassiopeia, the lovely psionicist; and M1, born and raised Matthew Barnes in Equinox, who enlisted during World War II and joined the 1st Hero Brigade.
Galaxy City was known for many years as Paragon Heights. It was renamed after the post-Rikti-restoration, in honor and remembrance of Galaxy Girl, a.k.a. Kelly Graham, one of the neighborhood's own. A favorite of Paragon Heights, a darling sweetheart to everyone who called the area home, and a kind and compassionate matron to her extended family, Kelly was a true daughter of the neighborhood. A proposal was put forward during the rebuilding to not only raise a tall monument to her, but to rename the area Galaxy City after one of their own. An impressive statue of Galaxy Girl was erected during the rebuilding, and she gracefully takes her place amidst the city’s skyline, holding her hands up to the clouds.
- Constellation Row (Red - Level 3-6) (Music) forms most of the central southern part of the zone
- Cygnus Medical Center (Music) in the northwestern part of the zone, surrounded by Freedom Court. It contains the Paragon City Monorail station, as well as the Cygnus Mecial Center.
- Equinox (Yellow - Level 1-2) (Music) just north of the center of the zone. This neighborhood contains one of the three Arenas in Paragon City.
- Freedom Court (Green, Yellow - Level 1-2) (Music) in the central part of the zone, is where the Freedom Phalanx headquarters is located. This neighborhood also is where the hero trainer of the zone, Back Alley Brawler, can be found. Note that on the game map, there is an unlabeled mid-level area south of the Freedom Court marker and an unlabeled low-level neighborhood north of the marker; these neighborhoods are considered part of the Freedom Court neighborhood as well.
- Gemini Park (Red - Level 5-6) (Music) in the southeast corner of the zone
- Nebula District (Orange - Level 3-6) (Music) the southwestern part of the zone.
- Orion Beltway (Orange - Level 3-4) (Music) in the northeast part of the zone.
| Bird Watcher|
The Invisible Falcon disappeared without a trace in the mid 90's.
| Blue Shield|
M1, a hero from World War II, is honored today with a statue in Galaxy City.
| Land Locked|
This lock holds back the waters of Eastgate Bay, and has been the target of many super criminals bent on flooding Galaxy City.
| Galactic Fan|
Galaxy Girl's sacrifice to save the people of Paragon City has not gone unnoticed, prompting this tremendous statue to be built in honor of her. Galaxy Girl's father visited the statue every day until he passed away at the age of 91.
| Eye of the Gemini|
Gemini Park was once a popular gathering spot for people in the city, until the Hellions and Vahzilok took over. On some occasions many heroes could be seen relaxing in the area, daring the local gangs to try something. The people of Paragon would hold events on these days, happy to have their park wrested away from the hands of criminals.
| Orion's Belt|
This statue commemorates the hero Orion, whom Orion Beltway was renamed after. During the first Rikti War, Orion fought valiantly against the Rikti, saving the people of this small district. He was remembered, in particular, as the hero with no real powers beyond his knowledge of martial arts.
