Colonia is a system in the Inner Scutum-Centaurus Arm. It is approximately 22,000 light years outside the Core Systems, and is also the current location of Jaques Station, making it one of the most remote inhabited star systems from Sol. A permanent planetary outpost, Colonia Hub, was later constructed in the system as the headquarters of the Colonia Council, marking the beginning of human colonization of the Colonia Nebula and wider Colonia Region.[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, founder of the Galactic Mapping Project. The name was quickly adopted by the exploration community and Universal Cartographics officially changed the system's name on October 25, 3302.

Travelling to Colonia

The Colonia system is exactly 22,000.46 ly away from Sol. To facilitate travel and trade between the Core Systems and Colonia, a network of 17 inhabited systems with 20 ports was constructed between them, forming the Colonia Connection Highway. Neutron stars in the Neutron Highway along the route can be fuel scooped for FSD Supercharging, reducing overall travel times significantly.


  • 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 Jaques has no plans to retry the jump 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.
  • Colonia's population has grown rapidly since Jaques Station was rediscovered. It was originally only 750 during most of 3302, consisting 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]
