The Tellun star system was an inhabited planetary system in the Alpha Quadrant. The two planets of the system, Elas and Troyius, were the homeworlds of the Elasians and Troyians, respectively.

During the mid-23rd century, the system was located near the Federation-Klingon border. Although it was considered under Federation control, the Klingon Empire claimed jurisdiction over this system.

Location

In 2256, the location of Tellun was labeled on the star chart "Alpha/Beta Quadrant Overview" in the ready room aboard the USS Discovery. (DIS: "Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad")

In 2399, the location of Tellun was labeled on a Federation star chart that was in Fleet Admiral Kirsten Clancy's office at Starfleet Headquarters. The system was in or near to Federation space. (PIC: "Maps and Legends")

In 3189, the location of Tellun was denoted on a holographic star chart of the galaxy at Federation Headquarters. (DIS: "Die Trying")

History

In 2257, during the first Federation-Klingon War, this system was occupied by the Klingons. (DIS: "The War Without, The War Within")

In 2268, both civilizations possessed the capability of mutual destruction. In that year, both the Federation and the Klingon Empire considered the Tellun system to reside within their respective borders. The Federation sought an end to the internal conflict and served as a mediator between Elasians and Troyians, while the Klingons tried to subvert the peace efforts in the hopes of eventually gaining access to the vast Elasian dilithium deposits.

The USS Enterprise, a Federation starship, was assigned a secret diplomatic mission to facilitate the marriage of Elaan, the Dohlman of Elas, to the ruler of Troyius. The mission was interrupted by sabotage and an indecisive ship-to-ship engagement with a Klingon D7 class battle cruiser. Regardless of the obstacles, the mission was a success. (TOS: "Elaan of Troyius")

In 2328, this was the destination for passengers traveling from Earth Colony 2 via commercial transport. Mary Joy Macalintal, Michael Westmore, and Marion Westmore traveled there on the SS Kogin. (TNG-R: "Inheritance", okudagram)

According to Star Trek: Star Charts (p. 62) and Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Tellun's system was a binary star system with a G-class star and an A-class star.
The star chart in the Star Trek: Picard episode "Maps and Legends" located this system in the Beta Quadrant.
