The Braxiatel Collection was an archive of rare artefacts and pieces of artwork collected by Irving Braxiatel. It was located on asteroid KS-159, which Braxiatel had won as part of the winnings in a card game. He originally wanted the asteroid partly because he wished to investigate the Oracle of the Lost, but later decided to use it as a site for his collection. (PROSE: Tears of the Oracle) Braxiatel sited his collection in that part of space due to it being the site of a huge, dense energy field. He planned to use the energy field to support his people after he brought them back from their doom. (AUDIO: Resurrecting the Past)

Braxiatel began building his collection prior to the destruction of Dellah. (PROSE: Where Angels Fear) He claimed to have started his collection after witnessing how easily time can be destroyed. Despite the fact that doing so was illegal, Braxiatel started accumulating rare cultural items from throughout time in an effort to preserve them. (AUDIO: The Inquiry) He had much of it in storage X One Nine in a series of large warehouses, one of which held a secret apartment. He built gravity generators and set up KS-159 as the Braxiatel Collection towards the end of the 26th century. (PROSE: Tears of the Oracle)

Romana II suggested that the collection was better than the Louvre, but the Fourth Doctor disagreed. (TV: City of Death)

The Fifth Doctor intended to take Erimem to the Braxiatel Collection, but landed in 1626 France instead. (AUDIO: The Church and the Crown)

The Rat and Pestle was a pub on the Collection. (PROSE: The Infernal Nexus) Café Vosta was a shop on the Collection. (PROSE: Misplaced Spring) The Agamemnon was a bar located near the library. (PROSE: The Blame of the Nose)

History Edit

Invasion of the Braxiatel Collection Edit

The Braxiatel Collection was attacked and invaded by the Fifth Axis, assisted behind the scenes by the Daleks. (AUDIO: Death and the Daleks) Following this incident (which should never have occurred), Braxiatel set about ensuring the Collection would be safe, secretly recruiting an army of Cybermen for this purpose. However, he was forced to depart the Collection following a series of events involving (among other things) his manipulation and attempted murder of Jason Kane. (AUDIO: The Crystal of Cantus)

Braxiatel's absence Edit

During Braxiatel's absence from the Collection, Bev Tarrant stepped forwards to be the Collection's director. (PROSE: Work in Progress) Braxiatel had linked his TARDIS to the Collection, and the machine was malfunctioning in his absence. (PROSE: Mother's Ruin) Following a series of unusual events and the aggressive policies of several alien species, (AUDIO: Summer of Love) Bernice Summerfield brought Braxiatel back to solve the affair. (AUDIO: The Tub Full of Cats)

Within a day of his return Bev Tarrant was ousted by the Draconian Ambassador Kothar. (AUDIO: The Judas Gift) Although not officially in charge, Braxiatel returned to a position of authority. (AUDIO: Freedom of Information) Due to the death of Jason Kane and suspicions of Braxiatel's motives, Bernice took her son Peter and fled the Collection (and Braxiatel). (AUDIO: The Wake)

In the Deindum War, the Collection was used as a refugee camp, housing over twenty thousand people. (AUDIO: Escaping the Future) After the Deindum War, the Braxiatel Collection vanished without a trace. (PROSE: Adorable Illusion)
