Enterprise leaves Tulaw.

Tulaw[1] was an inhabited planet in the galaxy's Beta Quadrant, the site of a trellium-D mine in the Delphic Expanse. (ENT episode: "The Xindi")

History[]

In the 2150s decade, Tulaw appeared like a blue planet with white clouds. Its surface contained breathable atmosphere but was only survivable for humanoids for limited periods of time.

Aliens had established a mining facility for trellium-D, which was sold to insulate starships from spatial anomalies in the expanse. Heavily armed cargo ships would service the installation. Its workforce consisted of slaves.

One of the slaves was the Xindi-Primate Kessick, who was delivered to Tulaw by a freighter captain of questionable character.

In September 2153, the freighter captain referred the Earth starship Enterprise NX-01 to Tulaw to meet the Xindi he had left there years ago. The Humans paid the alien foreman with half a liter of liquid platinum to see Kessick. This marked the first contact between Humans and Xindi-Primates. The foreman double-crossed them, and Kessick died soon after the successful escape from injuries sustained in a firefight. Enterprise left the planet to Xindus, but found that world destroyed. (ENT episode: "The Xindi")

The lack of success on tracking down the Xindi weapon and more Xindi presence wore on the Human crew's morale. Their next clue to find Xini led them to the trading hub world of Kaletoo. (ENT novel: Last Full Measure)

In 2376, Contractor Kesla Randu dealt with a trellium mining planet in specialized cases in her business, as opposed to the Dytallix Mining Corporation. (CoE eBook: Troubleshooting)
