Summary[edit | edit source]
The Collective is a company run by members of the civilization Empire of Phantomium Marxium.
The Collective is a subset of T3 Economy systems within the Empire of Phantomium Marxium. It is also referenced and referred to as Phantomial Collective, and The Phantomial T3 Collective. When abbreviated, its symbols are PTC.
Mission[edit | edit source]
The goal of The Collective is to designate as many T3 Economy systems as possible. The company is attempting to create a coordinated trading network across dominant life-form, and economy type. It is The Collective's wish that through this project, they can make it easier to come across more variants of top tier star ships and freighters. As such, there are requirements for being an official classified system, but anyone can submit their discovery as a Fringe System, as long as it adheres to the submission requirements.
Joining the Cause[edit | edit source]
If you want to play with us on Xbox, check out the EPM club: here.
You can also engaged with our community on our sub-reddit: NMSPhantomEmpire There is a link to our Discord on our reddit as well.
We are a company of casual explorers If you'd like to have your discovery documented, you can submit on your subreddit at the link above. We are mostly a company that engages in our Xbox club, but we also chat on Discord.
Submitting Your Discovery[edit | edit source]
You can help grow this library of T3 Starship observatories by submitting your discovery to our reddit page. There is a pinned post on the page to use as a template.
Building Observatories[edit | edit source]
The PTC mention of Observatory is a direct reference to trading post. Each Observatory functions as a branch of the The Collective. All Observatories are within close proximity to the system's trading post. Sectors within the Region are groups of T3 systems in very close proximity to each other; they are usually less than 300ly apart.
The Collective classifies their systems in Classes depending on the location of the Star system. Callsigns refer to the system's name and are sometimes indicative of qualities of the system observatory or the system itself, but not always.
Observatories[edit | edit source]
Each observatory contains a portal, and shelter from the elements so that ship hunters can safely watch the landing star-ships. While base-portals cannot be used if you traveled using a planetary portal, members of The Collective are often more than happy to shuttle you to anyone of the PTC systems.
A selection of Visions Era systems discovered by the Collective have been retrofitted with Beyond technology so that they are self-sustaining. These observatories have the old tag of [$$$] [EPM]. Beyond Era systems have the new tag of [EPMu].

Nike Class Observatories[edit | edit source]
Nike systems II and beyond designate systems that were discovered by the PTC on Xbox, but first discovered by a Traveller on another platform. This section gives credit to those intrepid explorers. The original Nike name was reserved as tribute to blek123 giving SparkiinJayz a shuttle to the core, so that the core could be explored by The Collective.
