|“||We're currently outside the Galactic Vortex X3316 Beta. The Galactic Federation's control doesn't extend beyond this point... in other words, it's a lawless sector. This might be our last chance to turn back...||„|
Galactic Vortex X3316 Beta is a location within the Extreme Galaxy. This is an area not controlled by the Galactic Federation, leaving it conquerable by Greed and his minions. The planet Outlaw is found in this sector. The vortex is only acknowledged in Metroid EX, although the Alimbic Cluster (and presumably other locations belonging to the Space Pirates and Kriken Empire) in the canon Metroid series (specifically Metroid Prime Hunters) is also a galactic region outside the Federation's control.
