From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

The Extragalactic Society (often referred to as simply ExGal) was an organization devoted to the search for life outside the galaxy.[1] During the time of the Galactic Republic, it was a member of the General Ministry Institutes.[2]

Just before the start of the Clone Wars, the ExGal budget—along with the other General Ministry programs—was cut by 60%. This resulted in a greater use of droid exploration and a closing of several offices by the Society. Its president at this time was Tobbert Dalonbian.[2] It was presumably at this time that ExGal became an independent organization based at ExGal Command.

By 25 ABY, ExGal had at least four listening posts, with ExGal-4 located on Belkadan. It was that outpost that finally discovered extragalactic life, in the form of an approaching Praetorite Vong ship. The Vong subsequently destroyed ExGal-4 and killed all of its scientists, save for Danni Quee.[1]

Whether the Society continued its search after the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War is not known.
