Introduction

Vaguileochi (TEC FLB Valhalla)

The Galactic Hub base, TEC FLB Valhalla, was built during the Pathfinder era in July 2017 by player damon8r351, a member of the Alliance of Galactic Travellers (AGT). Ruined by the Atlas Rises update, the base hung in midair where the landscape used to be before the 1.3 update changed the terrain. This is a good example of disarticulated, suspended ruins. The base's architect left it abandoned in situ not bothering to deconstruct the base for resources. Crops continued to grow inside their hydroponic domes.

Archaeological survey and a failed excavation of a communication station ran from 3-4 July 2018 one month before No Man's Sky: NEXT deployed and wiped out all remaining Legacy Hub ruins, including Valhalla.

This site is part of the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project, which documented abandoned human settlements within the synthetic environment of the game No Man's Sky. This base was part of the original Galactic Hub, now known as the Legacy Hub, a place special to the original community, to the community of players at-large, and to the lore and history of this digital built environment.
