what's your budget?

I know of gmk yuri which is based on the first person in space? which is on clearance on nk for 85 bucks, but that may be out of your budget range but that's a really good deal for gmk.

I guess gmk lazer has a sorty spacey futuristic vibe - just make sure you get it on sale, they are kinda overpriced otherwise. I also wouldn't recommend buying from drop anyway unless there is a really good deal. Maybe also look on the aftermarket for this set as you could find it cheaper.

Heard alright things about polycaps but a lot of those people get paid off by kinetic labs so I actually haven't seen an opinion of these caps without affiliates or whatever. It is cheaper than gmk but I would still go for polycaps

I couldn't really find anything that fits that traitors infinity (which I wouldn't recommend getting anyway because it's reverse dye sub)

I know about KAT Space dust which kinda fits it, but that hasn't been made and shipped (it's been 2 years since I ordered and still hasn't come) I'll tell you when you can buy the set in stock with extras and if the set is worth it, since they are using new doubleshot + dye sub stuff.

I love those gmk yuri caps i am going to have to order a set of those even tho idk if they will fit my theme im going for they look great.

I found GMK Galaxy they are pretty pricey but if GMK caps are worth the money i will probably order these https://vala.supply/products/gmk-galaxy

GMK is pretty good, but quality control isn't the best, I would say 179 is too much for modern gmk imo, maybe 140 would be where you would start considering it, with extras pricing at least.

Yuri is a great deal which I might actually buy (assuming I have others that can split shipping with their orders, cause nk shipping to australia is rough) because it is a nice set.

Usually a lot of the clone sets are not that good quality, even for the price you can get a lot better, but you aren't getting the colourway you want since most of the best options only do beige.

There is also an ethical issue surrounding clones which is why I will not support clone makers personally, and reccomend others not to but that is a person by person basis.

Maybe look on the aftermarket for gmk galaxy if you are looking for specifically that find a set from a reputable maker that is similar, those colours shouldn't be too hard to find. Or you can wait for another space set that catches your eye it is a common theme.

GL with your search.
