Ecco The Dolphin Wiki

A few pairs of the Asterite's globes.

The Asterite's globes, or simply "Globes", are an important gameplay element in the original Ecco games.

In Ecco the Dolphin, Ecco had to travel back in time to the prehistoric era to retrieve a globe that had become detached from the Asterite. In Ecco: The tides of Time, the Vortex Queen shattered the Asterite, scattering its globes across the ocean. Ecco, in turn, must collect these globes and stockpile them in the Moray Abyss where the Asterite can rebuild itself.

In Ecco: Defender of the Future they are replaced by the Noble Trait spheres.
