Tellus is a planet in the Epsilon Indi system.


Tellus is a green and blue planet with eight moons. The planet’s atmosphere creates a hazy golden halo around it when viewed from space.[1]

Tellus ColonyEdit

This planet was selected as the second Human colony world and an expedition to colonize the planet was launched in 2063. After successfully transiting a wormhole to reach the planet, the colony ship had just completed its orbital insertion when it was attacked and destroyed by Chig fighters.[2]
