When building off of your federation, does your satellite count as part of your territory? In other words, can I build x amount of spaces away from a satellite and treat it as a planet?

No, just the Swarms space stations.

Pretty sure the satellite is just there to connect planets/buildings for your federation. You wouldn't be able to use them for distance reasons as if they were a planet.

No. Satellites only serve to link planets in a federation.

There isn't really the concept of territory in Gaia Project. Satellites do not define borders nor can they block other players. You are only allowed to place the minimum number of satellites needed to link the planets you group into a federation, you can't build extra ones to mark territory (since you have none) nor extend your build range (because they don't).

Thank you everybody. This community is amazing. Long live the Geek!

So loving Gaia Project, 5 two and three player games in and about 6 Solo games in.

The first game that I've ever truly enjoyed the Solo version! A great way to test the different race engines.

There's one exception where satellites DO block players from doing something: The Lost Planet cannot be placed on a hex which already has a satellite (or Schwarm space station) on it.

Exactly, this is an often forgotten feature of the lost planet. As far as I know, this is literally the only way in GP to spoil alliances/federations of other players. If you see someone setting themselves up for a federation whose sattellite route leads through a bottleneck, you can close it up with the lost planet.
