The Galaxy Warp is the former central hub on Earth for interstellar transport used by Gems, replacing the Colony type ships. The system consists of numerous warp pads of varying sizes that have been inactive for thousands of years. The Galaxy Warp is located atop a large plateau, surrounded by an ocean or large lake and numerous smaller islands.
Six massive inorganic rock formations surround the perimeter of the summit, which houses sixteen individual warp pads arranged in a crop circle-like pattern. As of Friend Ship, one of this rock formations has collapsed, has damage from Peridot's attacks. The central pad directly links Earth with the Gem Homeworld.
The Crystal Gems follows Peridot's Robonoids back to the Galaxy Warp where they proceed to repair the Homeworld warp, allowing Peridot to warp in. She then hastily retreats upon discovering one of the stickers, believing the site to have been "compromised". Garnet promptly undoes the repairs to the Homeworld warp by smashing it with her gauntlets.
While not featured in the actual episode, Steven discovers through his future vision that the Gems launched the Shooting Star directly to the Galaxy Warp with the objective of destroying it once and for all.
The Galaxy Warp appears to be untouched, suggesting that the Shooting Star was never used (or it was used, but didn't destroy all the Galaxy Warp, or the use of it happened in an alternate time-line). Peridot was seen attempting to repair the Homeworld warp before fighting the Crystal Gems and later using the only active warp pad to escape.
- Pearl states in the episode "Mirror Gem" that the Crystal Gems obtained the mirror containing Lapis Lazuli at the Galaxy Warp.
- Rebecca Sugar first hinted that the Crystal Gems were intergalactic at the first standalone Steven Universe panel at San Diego Comic Con.
- This is the first place Peridot was seen.
- She is seen there again in "Friend Ship".
- In an alternate timeline, seen using Garnet's future vision, Steven interrupts the warping process and the Shooting Star detonates, destroying the Crystal Temple.
