Colonia is a system approximately 22,000 Light Years outside of human space, in the midst of the Colonia Nebula of the Colonia Region. It is the current location of Jaques Station, making it one of the most remote star systems from Sol with a space station. A permanent planetary outpost, Colonia Hub, was later constructed as the headquarters of the Colonia Council, marking the beginning of human colonization of the Colonia Nebula.[1]

Colonia's original designation was Eol Prou RS-T d3-94. The Eol Prou nebula was submitted as a POI to the Galactic Mapping Project on July 1, 3302, by CMDR Diocles Asterous (aka Diostar), with a placeholder name of "Colonia" being suggested by Erimus Kamzel (GMP Founder). The name was quickly adopted by the exploration community and Universal Cartographics made the name change official on October 25, 3302.

Travel Edit

A series of six Surface Ports, three Starports, and three Outposts have been constructed between the Core Systems and Colonia, forming the Colonia Connection Highway. Neutron stars in the Neutron Highway can be fuel scooped for FSD Supercharging, reducing overall travel times significantly by increasing jump distances.

Population Edit

Colonia's population has grown rapidly since Jaques Station was located. It was originally only 750 during most of 3302, comprising of the crew of the station itself. Since then, the system's population has been recorded as expanding to 60,000 by early 3303, 200,000 by June 24, 3303, 400,000 by September 26, 3303, and 450,000 by January 11, 3304. Galnet has reported on Colonia's population boom.[2]

System LayoutEdit


  • Jaques Station, the only space station equipped for continuous star travel, attempted an extreme long-range jump to Beagle Point from Gliese 1269 on May 21, 3302, following a successful community goal to provide the station with fuel. Due to Unknown Artefact interference, the station's drives malfunctioned during the jump and it was stranded in Eol Prou RS-T d3-94. A community goal to provide Jaques Station with repair materials succeeded, but it is unknown when it will attempt to resume its journey to Beagle Point.
  • The first permanent settlement in the system, Colonia Hub on the surface of Eol Prou RS-T d3-94 2 A (now known as Colonia 2 A), was inaugurated on September 9, 3302. It was the global reward for a community goal.
  • The name "Colonia" was submitted to the community created Galactic Mapping Project on July 1st 3302 as a suggested name for the nebula that Jaques Station was discovered in. Colonia soon became the adopted name of the wider region as a whole, and Eol Prou RS-T d3-94 was officially renamed "Colonia" with the 2.2 update.
