Colony IX, also known as Colony 9, was the ninth colony where colonists from Earth were assigned.[1]


Colony IX was relatively close to Shakespeare.[1]

Ender in Exile

When the Ministry of Colonization assigned colonists from Earth to the planet, the leaders of Colony IX refused to accept the colony ship, piloted by Captain Hong. The Minister of Colonization, Hyrum Graff, asked the Shakespeare colony if they would be receptive for this shipment of colonists. The governor of the planet, Ender Wiggin, was glad to accept and the ship was rerouted to Shakespeare.[1]
