Telamond is a terrestrial world in the Imago system, ensconced within the Monkey Head nebula in the far reaches of the Outer Colonies region. It is administered as the Colony of Telamond by the Central Galactic Union. It is a warm pelagic world with 96% ocean cover, which hosts a rich marine ecosystem. Its climate is largely calm and pluvial across its deep global ocean. However, the seas between its two continents are very stormy and chaotic, creating a tropical storms along its coastlines.
Its peculiar atmosphere has a high proportion of argon (80.1%) and oxygen (19%), which is breathable but denser than standard Earth-like atmosphere; this has effects on aircraft and spacecraft, limiting widespread settlement and development. It remains a fairly low-populated world, with over half of the population concentrated in the capital city of Williamsburg.
