Galactic events are random events that can occur during a game that offer a bonus and/or penalty to all players. Unlike the colonization events and mega events these events do not feature an ideological choice.
Mega Events are a type of optional random events. The player can define the frequency of Mega Events during the creation of a new game.
Mega Events were added to the game in Version 1.2. Coupled with this was the release of the [|Mega Events DLC], which includes extra mega events that can occur.
