Elonia is the homeworld of Rom and the capital of the Solstar Order.

Its native species is (unsurprisingly) the Elonians, though befitting its status as the capital world of a space faring alliance, it boasts many offworld immigrants of various species and their descendants.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

Some ten million years ago, the Titan Emissary, distraught at the death of Prima, fled his people, eventually crashing on prehistoric Elonia. His death was witnessed by a native hunter. The First Who Was Named TFWikiFavicon.png 600,000 years prior to the present day, Shockwave fired a sample of Ore-12 at Elonia, the sample unknowingly landing atop Emissary's crash site.

In time, the Elonians colonized their world and developed a unified world peace prior to their development of interstellar travel.

Elonia itself was protected by an impenetrable laser grid and several space-based weapons from orbit. Such was the strength of these defenses that none of the inhabitants felt threatened by alien powers. On the surface, farming techniques had advanced to the point that they essentially eliminated scarcity and, as a result, crime became almost non-existent.

Then it all went to hell when the Dire Wraiths broke through the defense net (rather easily) and invaded the planet for the ore. Cold Fire The subsequent fighting lasted for a month, Long Roads to Ruin, Part 3 and all but destroyed Elonia despite the Knights being successful in expelling the Wraiths from the planet. Later Rom would reflect that the "ultimate victory" over the Wraiths was as bitter as any defeat owing to the resulting state of the planet. Earthfall: Part Two

After Rom rescued Stardrive, he brought her back to Elonia to be healed by Solstar doctors. Shining Armor #1 TFWikiFavicon.png

After meeting Darby Mason and taking refuge in Blind-Eye Cave, Rom told her his story and mournfully reflected on the lost beauty and serenity of his homeworld and how the Space Knights had largely failed in protecting it and other worlds under the protection of the Solstar Order as well as noting how very far it was from Earth.

When he had successfully reactivated Trypticon, Bludgeon pondered which planet he should conquer first with Elonia being one of his choices. Salvation TFWikiFavicon.png

After the Iron Ring's failed invasion of Cybertron and the magics unleashed by the Visionaries within the planet had roused Unicron into action, he began consuming Cybertronian colonies in preparation for his attack on Cybertron itself. Ore-12 drew the Chaos Bringer to Elonia, his approach to the planet causing Rom and Stardrive to feel a psychic attack, alerting them to the danger. Rom immediately set out for home (while Stardrive felt her energies would be better suited elsewhere), arriving in time to see Unicron bearing down on the planet. Though the Cybertronians provided assistance, using Space Bridge technology to warp two-thirds of the population to safety, Unicron ultimately consumed the planet drawing on the power within the Ore-12.
