The Outer Colonies were planets controlled by the Terran Confederacy. Despite a similar naming, they were a separate group of planets from the Fringe Worlds, but overlapped astrogeographically. For instance, Mar Sara was both a Fringe World and Outer Colony.
The Outer Colonies continued to be controlled by the Terran Dominion well into the reign of Emperor Valerian Mengsk. They were represented by Senator Joss Brogan, who was arrested after hiding his criminal record.
