We could make the stars move, like in the Microsoft Étoiles screensaver.
(The applications are always moving/evolving :) )

To make it a bit distinctive, it could be spelled "Galaxie".
(Or always plural, "Galaxies".)
Since "Galaxy" is used in a lot of different software.
There is even a Mandriva (or Gnome?) theme called Galaxy.

BTW, are you 2 related ?
