An elliptical galaxy is a very massive sphere of stars that are much older than those on other galaxies. They are one of the galaxies in Everything. The solar system that the player starts in could possibly be inside an elliptical galaxy. Elliptical galaxies are very prominent in the universe.
They are found inside the Cosmos .
An elliptical galaxy is normally a lot larger than other galaxies in real life, here they are the same size. In addition to this, the ellipticals in the game are more transparent than those in real life. Ellipticals in the game also appear to have nebulas inside of them, which ellipticals in real life tend to have very few of.
