Akradax (often referred to as the Snow Globe Galaxy) is a dwarf elliptical galaxy orbiting the Flower Galaxy, and is located ~11 million light-years from the Aylothn Galaxy. Located in the Telusian Group, and being the core of the Akradax Gateways, Akradax has outsize fame for its size. However, it is also the home to one of the oldest standing nations in the universe, the Akradax Collective.
The Akradax Collective has influenced the galaxy quite a lot, it being their home galaxy and primary colonization area. A significant amount of Collective artifacts are found close to the galaxy, often abandoned since their regression into civil war and isolationism. Many of these have been preserved for historical purposes, or dissected to learn how they work. They are still important for their extreme age, if nothing else.
Akradax contains a dense forest of heavily modified worlds and megastructures, which litter the galaxy filling almost every system, especially those within the Snow Globe Nebula. After almost four hundred thousand years of colonization, this is to be expected. These megastructures are very mysterious, with scientists being invited in to study them only very recently, and most of them not even being able to understand their function. The most important of these megastructures are the Akradax Gateways, transport devices scattered throughout the Telusian Cluster. These all appear to lead to a nexus near the central black hole of Akradax, which has been declared neutral territory for its extreme usefulness to all species in the Flower Galaxy and surrounds.
- Toralea, a vast birch planet surrounding the central black hole of Akradax.
- Ring of Heaven, an absurdly large rotating ring that surrounds Toralea and contains the Akradax Gateways.
- The Great Siphon, a massive, somehow mobile starlifting mechanism currently located around the blue supergiant star Kerrem.
