Colonia Region

The Colonia Region is located 22,000 light years from humanity's origin in the Sol system. It is home to the famous Colonia system, and a true frontier on the edge of the void. The rapidly-developing region offers pristine mining grounds, exploration opportunities, the chance to be a trail blazer on the edge of "civilized" space, and more.[1]

History Edit

Colonia became a hive of activity during mid-3302 after the discovery by CMDR Cly of Jaques Station following the starports misjump to Beagle Point earlier that year. It is located on the edge of the galactic core regions, where the Near 3kpc Arm and Far 3kpc Arm converges with the Galactic Bar.[2]

Its original designation was EOL PROU RS-T D3-94, but was submitted as a POI named "Colonia" to the Galactic Mapping Project on July 1st 3302, and the name was quickly adopted by the exploration community. The name subsequently became official via Universal Cartographics (Frontier Developments), several weeks later.

When people refer to 'Colonia' it may have several meanings depending on how broadly the term is being used.

In its most narrow sense, it may refer only to the Colonia system itself - this is the star system where Jaques Station is located.

The star system has in turn given name to the nebula it is located within - the Colonia Nebula - and in a broader sense, 'Colonia' may refer to all the inhabited systems within this nebula.

Birth of a Colony Edit

Colonia is humanity's first independently established colony beyond the frontier borders of the old worlds. Its inception began in late June 3302 when calls from the exploration community to ship meta alloy out to the stricken starport were made, and this lead to an initiative to establish a working colony in and around EOL PROU RS-T D3-94 - an initiative instigated by Olivia Vespera, and built upon via the Jaunt to Jaques - August Exodus expedition, set up by Jonus Treesong, Unrealization, and Erimus Kamzel. The expedition became the 2nd largest in human history, behind Distant Worlds, and close to 600 starships in two giant convoys ventured out to the region and helped establish the colony.

The Colonia Citizens Network, founded by Erimus Kamzel, Unrealization, Qohen Leth, and Souvarine soon followed, which offered a communications hub for colonists to utilise and form their own colonial society. From this the colony grew into a hub of activity which saw almost 2,000 colonists join the network and commit to emigrating out to the region during the months that followed.

Today CCN is administrated by a new generation of Custodians and Colonia as a whole is home to many factions that have emigrated out there and established infrastructure at many systems throughout the Colonia micro bubble.

Conflict Edit

On October 20, 3303, the Colonia Region's reputation for peace was tarnished by its first notable conflict. A criminal organization based out of the Carcosa system called The Nameless started attacking ships in the Colonia system. In response, the Colonia Council issued a call for aid from the galactic community to quell the insurgents. Likewise, The Nameless attempted to entice independent pilots to join their side and usurp the Colonia Council.[3] By October 27, the Colonia Council had successfully rebuffed The Nameless and restored order.[4]

The Colonia Exodus Edit

By December 7, 3303, after weeks of conflict in the Pleiades Nebula against the Thargoids, citizens of the Core Systems had been fleeing to the Colonia Region in droves. The Colonia Council announced a campaign to establish multiple new outposts throughout the Colonia Region to support the new arrivals, and placed an open order for construction materials at Pilkington Orbital in Einheriar.[5] The campaign was successful and planning for the construction of the new outposts was begun.[6]

On December 29, the Colonia Council reported that the number of refugees arriving in Colonia had skyrocketed in recent weeks, and the Thargoid attacks on stations in the Pleiades had only accelerated the rate of immigration. Many immigrants made the trek to Colonia out of fear that the Core Systems were the Thargoids' next target. Colonia Council spokesperson Magen Wolfe stated that although Colonia would continue to welcome new arrivals with open arms, but expressed skepticism that the Core Systems were in imminent danger and noted that the Colonia Region could only support a limited number of people in its current state of development. It was speculated that additional infrastructure expansion initiatives could be necessary to accommodate the exploding population.[7]

Colonization Edit

The Colonia Council of the Colonia Expansion Initiative set in motion plans to colonize the Colonia sector. The galactic community contributed resources to determine which organizations are most dedicated. Those organizations are allowed to colonize the systems.

Population Edit

Sandro Sammarco commented on the population of the Colonia Region:

"Although you're not going to see mega populations such as those present in core systems, populations on currently inhabited systems in the Colonia region can and *will* increase over time.

"The Colonia region is *fully* connected to the background simulation; it's an ongoing enterprise that started small, but as it grows, expect it to slowly transform."[8]
