The Phalanx Route was a hyperlane that ran from the Unknown Regions to Wild Space. It connected the Chiss Expansionary Defense Force staging planet Cormit—located in the Chiss Ascendancy's core territory—with the jungle world Tenupe—located in the Utegetu Nebula. It met the Vaagari Corridor in a T-junction at one end point, Cormit, and passed through several Chiss star systems outside of the Ascendancy's core territory—including Catlia, Massoss and Crustai[1]—before leaving the Unknown Regions[2] and entering Wild Space.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Phalanx Route first appeared in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, in the map depicting the Chiss Ascendancy's core territory and its immediate vicinity.[1]
