  5. Geology & Surface Organics
The Geology & Surface Organics department’s primary focus is to catalogue lifeforms and plantlife keeping an open mind to how and where they develop and to record and study geological formations found naturally on other worlds. By careful measurement and study we advance further in understanding our natural universe.

Speed Scanning Challenge

In the Inner Orion Spur, about 300 light years from Sol, Tucanae Sector AF-A d71 4 e is a 1000km radius rocky body, with a thin Carbon Dioxide Atmosphere, that supports 9 different life forms. Worth a modest 2,093,600 credits at Vista Genomics, the system was visited by CMDR Yanosh who analysed all the biology…

Organic Scanning Guide

In this guide we will show you some tips and techniques for finding surface biology using the latest incarnation of the detailed surface scanner and how to quickly gather the required three scans per species so that you can sell the data at Vista Genomics and work your way up to the coveted Exobiologist Elite…

Where Bacteria Roam

turned_in_not, ,
CMDR Felsen83 has written a report on the current state of bacterial research. Back on ancient earth, long before humanity took to the stars, the archaic lifeform named “Bacterium” had been known to populate almost all corners of the planet. With the new campaign to sample all life in our galaxy, initiated by Vista Genomics,…

Will you take the Canonn Challenge?

Here at Canonn Interstellar we just love to catalog things. We now have a huge catalog of Biology and Notable Stellar Phenomena. You can access our data from the following locations.

Amphora Plant

Amphora Plant

These are relatively rare organics (see in-game Codex for locations), and they will appear on the Navigation panel as Biological signals. There appears to be only a single classification. They spawn the usual range of raw materials, shoot them to retrieve. Scan them with the ship or SRV Composition Scanner to record them in your…

Crystalline Shards

turned_in_not, ,
These structures are created by colonies of micro-organisms and are found in several sectors. including Sanguineous Rim and The Abyss, mostly around the outer edge of the galaxy (see in-game Codex for locations). There appears to be only a single classification of crystalline shards. They spawn the usual range of raw materials, though they seem…

Alien Tubeworms Hunt

turned_in_not, ,
UPDATE! The hunt is over! With the advent of the galactic Codex CMDRs found tubeworms near the galactic core. These can be found in the in-game Codex classified as Sinuous Tubers in several areas around the Galactic Core sector. Commanders Syleo and Maligno often found wreckage and degraded emissions on their travels. Recently while sorting…

CMDR Madraptor and MWSOG bring you a special edition of Galactic Geologist magazine – Precambrian, a collection of geology from before beyond.

This special edition of Galactic Geologist is dedicated to the early discoveries and early discoverers and within these pages you will find a stunning collection of the Geysers, Fumaroles and Lava Spouts that they have catalogued. Please join CMDR Madraptor in thanking all those who choose to explore the unknown universe and aim to further our knowledge of it and the places we live.

Galactic Geologist – Issue 1


CMDR Madraptor brings you the first edition of Galactic Geologist magazine. Galactic Geologist will bring you up-to-date news of the latest discoveries around the subjects of Organics and Geology within the galaxy. Featured in this issue are an FAQ on Geysers, Fumeroles and Organics; Top 5 Geysers and Top 5 Fumeroles.
