Reach is Colonized

Planet Reach

Reach from orbit, c. 2500s.




The colony world of Reach, the first ever extrasolar colony established by humanity, was colonized sometime in 2362 by the colony ship Odyssey. Reach would grow to become the largest human colony in the galaxy, and would maintain its status as an economic and military powerhouse until its destruction during the Fall of Reach in 2552.
