The Magataran Maelstrom was some kind of energy phenomenon, possibly a black hole or nebula. A common phrase was "trapped between the Black Hole of Nakat and the Magataran Maelstrom."
Behind The ScenesEdit
The phrase alludes to the scene in The Odyssey, where Odysseus has to navigate between two horrible fates in the Strait of Messina, the whirlpool Charybdis or the monster Scylla.
