Caldos colony was a Federation colony and was one of its first terraforming projects. It was located on Caldos II in the Caldos system, approximately 200 light years from the Sol system. (TNG: "Sub Rosa")

History Edit

The founders of Caldos wanted to make the colony an accurate replica of Scotland on Earth. The cornerstones of each building were brought from different towns and cities in Scotland, and the architecture and even dress of the residents resembled that of Scotland. Citizens were not limited to Humans, however. The governor of the colony in 2370 was Maturin, a member of an unidentified alien species. The colony was settled sometime prior to 2270, when its weather modification network was installed.

The name may have been derived from the Latin "Caledonia" meaning "Scotland".

Locations Edit

Howard family home Edit

Felisa Howard and her granddaughter, Beverly Howard, called Caldos II their home since at least 2350. The house was a two-story cottage, with only a few technological amenities.

A line cut for time implies Beverly did not leave Caldos for good until she married Jack Crusher in 2348, which would mean she probably lived there many years beforehand as well.

The graveyard Edit

The graveyard of the Caldos colony.

The graveyard was located a few minutes from the Howard family home and sixteen kilometers from the center of the colony. Felisa was buried here upon her death in 2370. Other citizens buried there included last names of Vader and McFly.

The gravestones bore in-joke references to science fiction characters. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion)

Weather control substation Edit

Although the colony overall resembled Scotland of the 1600s, there were still several pieces of modern technology hidden throughout the colony. Such areas included the weather control substations, where the planet's weather modification network could be maintained. The station's control interfaces were similar to those found in late 23rd century starships.
