Team Galaxy (French: Team Galaxy, le Collège de l'Espace or Galaxie Académie in Quebec) is an animated series co-produced by Marathon Media, Image Entertainment Corporation, France 3, Rai Fiction and Jetix Europe in association with YTV. It blends 2D animation with CG elements, and is set at "Galaxy High" (not to be confused with the school in the 1980s animated series of the same name), where a trio of young students try to balance their regular teenage lives and their training to become Space Marshals. The concept and animation style is similar to that of both Totally Spies! and Martin Mystery, other series created by Marathon Media.

Team Galaxy is co-produced by a number of international broadcasters, such as France 3 which was the first to begin airing the full series from 28 August 2006. In the United States, Cartoon Network paid Marathon about $16–$17 million for 52 episodes, for a premiere in fall 2006. It also appears on Canada's YTV and CITV/Jetix in the UK.

Plot

"Team Galaxy" is about a group of friends who try to balance both their school work and their free time. The three protagonists, Yoko, Josh, and Brett, are among the students of a school called "Galaxy High", a galactic justice authority, which defends the galaxy against criminals. The school teaches subjects suitable for these types of missions, which their students endure. The series apparently takes place during the present day, but in an episode where they go through a time skip, a calendar says that the year is 2051, hinting that the actual series takes place in 2050.

Since the final 3 episodes of season 2 of Team Galaxy 'Predator Plants from Outer Space', a new plot has been introduced where Omni, an android as well as a student of another space school, is searching for his fellow schoolmates after his school has been destroyed by an alien bounty hunter named Gangus. He is convinced to stay at Galaxy High for the time being and is promised by Josh, Brett, Yoko, and the rest of GH to help him. Unfortunately, due to the show currently ending at 52 episodes, this plot hasn't been addressed any further.

Characters

Students

Teachers

UltraPets

On the first day of school at Galaxy High, each student is assigned a pet robot that serves as an aide and companion to them. Although they're cute, if provoked an Ultrapet can transform into a powerful fighting machine and, in the blink of an eye, can immobilize an alien foe upon its master's orders.

Technology

Galaxy High

Hornet

The standard issue mission ship for interplanetary travel. Loss of a Hornet while not completing a mission means expulsion from Galaxy High unless it is recovered. The Hornet is armed with two forward missile launchers, two manned turrets and one automated one on the top. It can be flown by one person, though standard issue is three. In the back, the Hornet can carry a Six-by-Six or a cargo container.

Shuttle

Massive aerospace aircraft carrier, owned by Galaxy High. The ship serves as the personal flagship of Director Kirkpatrick. Its main purpose is the transportation of Defenders at a distance exceeding the radius of autonomous flight. For some missions the ship carries "Hornets", which have a much greater range of flight.

Gluefoam

A purple glue-like substance. It is meant to incapacitate a person or patch a planet together. On skin contact, it eventually dissolves.

Defender

Small lightweight craft that are mainly used in the defence of Earth and Galaxy High. Josh, Yoko, and Brett each have one of the three main types of Defender. These craft need shuttles to carry them to its destination.
Each Defender is equipped with a variety of weapons which include hidden laser blasters and varying numbers of missiles.
