Use the spray points tool and spray them in the shape of a galaxy, use the magnet and similar tools to shape it up some.

Another suggestion that might work that I've never tried, you could always model something that's roughly that shape via the seashell tool or something like it, subdivide the hell out of it, kill the polygons and use the remaining points for the galaxy shape.

If you have the processorpower and memory, you can also set up alot of particle-emitters to simulate galaxies. The advantage with particle-system is that you can animate it, make it more "alive". Also, as one of the goals with my project, is to simulate two galaxies colliding and tearing each other apart...or whatever.. :)

Here you can see a test-render... :)

There is a sample that looks pretty good that comes on the Lightwave disks. I think it is called HV_Nebula.lws.

This one's quite nice if you're not too picky.
A couple of object layers with inertia or even Motion Designer and you're on your way....
