The Tellus Colony was Earth's second attempt to colonize a planet.
The Tellus Mission was to colonize Tellus, a planet in the Epsilon Indi system. The mission launched from the Frances R. Scobee Colonial Launch Center, Corpus Christi, Texas in 2063. Just prior to mission launch the United States Senate issued a directive to the Tellus Board of Governors regarding affirmative action for In Vitroes. The directive removed ten colonists and replaced them with ten In Vitroes.

Twenty five of the 250 crew were unaccounted for after the crash.

West reported seeing others being herded into a Chig Mother Ship, among them was Kylen.
