Full name: Titan

Dominant Species: Human

Titan was the largest moon of Saturn, the sixth planet in the Sol system. It is also the second largest satellite in the Sol system, and the only such body to have a dense atmosphere, and is larger than some planetary bodies in the solar system. The Federation starships USS Titan were named for this moon. (TTN novel: Taking Wing)

By the mid-21st century, Humans had established a series of domed settlements on Titan, including Christopher's Landing. This colony became a safe haven as Earth was ravaged by World War III. Zefram Cochrane spent time at the Titan colony. (ST novel: Federation)

Starfleet pilots who flew shuttlecraft on the Jovian Run would sometimes perform a maneuver called Titan's Turn. A dangerous maneuver, the pilot would accelerate directly towards Titan, brush against the atmosphere, and turn at the last minute. As a result the shuttle would whip around the moon at .7 c. And as the maneuver was discouraged by Starfleet, pilots would often, as Edward Jellico put it, pray like mad that no one saw them performing the maneuver. (TNG episode: "Chain of Command", Part II).

The colony continued into the 24th century, by which time the atmosphere had been modified to class M status. Zefram Cochrane was laid to rest at the colony. At the time, the colonists began a geothermal heating project, tapping into the interior heat of the moon. It was hoped that before too long the atmosphere of Titan would be warmed to the point that the domes would no longer be needed. (ST novel: Federation).

History

In 1655, Earth astronomer Christiaan Huygens discovered the largest moon of the planet, Saturn. Unofficially, the satellite became known as Saturni Luna until 1847 when English astronomer and mathematician, John Herschel renamed the moon, Titan.

At some point in the late 20th century, the ruling council of Titan looked upon Earth as a possible target of conquest. They sent a young scout named Kral to Earth to learn about it's culture. Kral landed in Smallville and met the teenage hero Superboy. He pretended to be Superboy's friend, and lured him back to Titan so that he could be imprisoned with Kryptonite. Superboy demonstrated his powers to the Titanian ruling council. Suspecting treachery, Superboy claimed that everyone on Earth had powers just like his. The Titanians decided to cancel their invasion plans. Earth-One continuity only. [1]

Later, the alien race known as the Dominators began experimenting with humanoid beings in the hopes of genetically enhancing them with various super-powers. Their experiments eventually culminated in a galactic Invasion of the planet, Earth. A Daxamite named Lar Gand became the custodian of these metahuman experiments and used them to seed various planets and moons throughout the galaxy.[2] It is believed by many that Titan was one of the seed colonies established by Lar Gand. These colonists eventually developed acute psionic talents, including telepathy and mental manipulation.

By the 30th century, they had established what is reputed to be the most efficient system of democratic government in the solar system. A large portion of this is due to the fact that the Titans' natural affinity towards telepathy make corruption in government a virtual impossibility.

Residents

Notes

  • Early inhabitants of Titan possessed a variety of super-powers including heat generation, cold generation and telepathy. By the 30th century, they had lost their heat and cold powers, maintaining only their telepathy.
