- "The die is now cast. The Colonies must either submit or triumph... we must not retreat! Never! But they'll still let us import their tobacco, right?"
- ―Supreme Chancellor George III
The Colonies referred to the twelve worlds colonized by the Human Lords of Kobol, from which they were driven following the Cylon Rebellion—whoops! Wrong universe!
The Colonies was a region of the galaxy nestled between the Core Worlds and what would later be known as the Inner Rim. It contained some of the earliest planets to be settled by the emerging Galactic Republic—incidentally, it would also be the location of one of the first planetary detonations that was not the result of natural phenomena. Coincidence? We at Darthipedia think not!
