You state in the spoiler that " One of the best things about Galaxxus is that it cannot be controlled by your opponent. The only way to get it to stop is to tear it down, and with 3 armor and 7 life itís pretty tough." it can be conquered right?

it can be conquered(and recast). that is the only way to control more than one Galaxxus at once. but you probably won't get the chance to conquer it. and recasting it requires you control an adjacent vtar orb as well.

Conquering works normally, but to recast it,  you need to also control an orb in an adjacent zone as stated on the card. Also, i imagine it can be hard to get rid of guards/creatures in a zone with an orb, so conquering is not as easy.

That seems insanely good.  After gaining control of your first v'tar orb in a game, you can immediately cast this to gain another one that your oppoent can't contest.

That is such a massive swing in the game that I'm having a hard time seeing a Domation book that wouldn't want to use it.

If your Warlord controls his own Galaxxus, its neighbouring Orb, an Orb neighbouring the second Galaxxus, and is in control of the opposing Galaxxus's zone such that he can Conquer/recast it (plus has the necessary mana to do so), he's probably already winning.

Just for verification, does Galaxxus trigger the V'tar effects of the guardians or the Bolt of V'tar? I would believe that it does not because even though Galaxxus is a V'tar object, it is not a V'tar Orb.  Is this correct?

Go with that impulse. :D
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.
