Collared Pod

These organisms are so called because of their distinctive collar.

— In-Game Description

A Collared Pod is a non-sentient, spacefaring entity that inhabits Lagrange Clouds. It appears to be a plant-like organism with multiple bioluminescent spots on either side of its body. While it does not visibly react to light, if a ship approaches it, it will constantly alter its position so that one of its sides is facing the ship.[1]


There are four known types of Collared Pods:

  • Albidus Collared Pod
  • Blattinus Collared Pod
  • Livens Collared Pod
  • Rubicundus Collard Pod


Collared Pods have been found at the following locations.
