The GTI Ganymede is a Terran-designed installation, serving as a repair and construction dock. Ships are constructed or repaired within the inner circumference of the Ganymede.

The Ganymede never appears in the official FreeSpace 2 singleplayer campaign, although it is featured in one multiplayer dogfight and a sample mission, included with Volition's FRED documentation.

There is nothing tactical about this installation. Although well armored with only 10,000 fewer hitpoints than a Orion or Hecate, it is a defenseless and fairly high-value target. This should be considered whenever there is a mission or campaign that could involve such an installation.


The center of some of the Ganymede's subsystems are located to the side of the model, rather than inside the model. This can cause torpedoes to try to turn circles around empty space, rather than actually impacting the installation.


You can't have a ship enter a Ganymede at some point in the mission without hitting the cables. If you start the mission with the ship in middle of the Ganymede, the cables actually go though the "docked" ship. The ship can move though the cables without any collision issues, just that if it gets out, it can't get back in.


The Ganymedes shown in the Colossus cutscene are much larger than the in-game model. The large arms protruding from the ring suggests that the Ganymede's ability to service "up to five warships simultaneously" comes from four ships being placed between the arms and one ship placed in the middle, with the cables clipping into its midsection. In practice, this is not as easy to do since the Ganymede has absolutely no docking points, meaning the five ships must be positioned by hand. In addition, any ship with a profile larger than an Orion is likely to occupy the space between some of the arms if said ship is placed in the middle of the ring, reducing the Ganymede's multi-service capabilities.
