Links to other series

Note: Galaxian 3 is the first game to mention the "UGSF" (United Galaxy Space Force), so every later game mentioning it is considered to reference the Galaxian series, unless referencing a previous game already mentioning it. Also note that if a series unrelated to Galaxian is revealed to take place in the same continuity in the official UGSF timeline, it's still not included here, since no direct link between them ever happened. See UGSF Timeline to know what games take place in its continuity.
