This guide was the first of the series dealing with the New Republic era, presenting the New Republic Scout Service as background for player characters interested in the "facing the unknown" theme, more common in other sci-fi universes. Galaxy Guide 8 features a complete lifeform random generation system and includes the planet/system random generation system already seen in Planets of the Galaxy, Volume One.

Now, the New Republic holds sway in most of the "civilized" portions of the old Empire, and the Scout Service has been renewed. Seeking out cultures and worlds lost or abandoned during the dark time of the Empire, the scouts are a new breed of hero facing a new kind of danger…
