You read my mind! Very "phagic." There may not be sufficient sequence similarity for you to ever get accurate alignments of encapsulins with phage capsid proteins even at the amino acid level (phages evolve too quickly!), but 3D structural similarities between the proteins are evident. A kind of "spatial alignment."
