— Ingame Description

Taylor Colony is the second planet in the Tau Ceti system. It was the site of humanity's first extrasolar colony, which was established in 2151 in the years following the invention of the first hyperdrive by Li Qin Jao. Over a decade later, colonists also discovered the first examples of alien life on Taylor Colony. This would become a point of contention between the early Tau Ceti colonists and the Earth-based Federation, as the former repeatedly violated Federal ecological protocols and caused widespread damage to the planet's native ecosystem. In 2240, a military task force arrived from Earth to place the colony under martial law, but found an insurrection already underway and prepared to face them. In 2242, after the conflict stalemated, a negotiated settlement was reached and the Federation's constitution was revised into the Federation Accord. Tau Ceti, Sol, Beta Hydri, Delta Pavonis, and Altair became the first five signatories of the Federation Accord, which established the modern Federation as the first interstellar superpower.
