Link between Red Orb of NMS (Atlas path) and Alias?

Is there a link between the Red Orb when following the Atlas path in NMS and the tv-serie Alias?

In Alias it called the Mueller Device:

Mueller Device

Mueller Device (2)


Atlas path - red orb

Atlas path - red orb (2)


They do look cousins! I didn’t know that spies show had such intricate lore…

From a technical standpoint it’s a displaced sphere using noise… Which makes perfect sense for NMS, since it represents perfectly the main generation system for the galaxy, missing a sparkle of procedural, like a random color, maybe, to be the perfect avatar for the simulation.
