Millennia ago, the Talosians were engaged in a war so devastating that it rendered the surface of Talos IV uninhabitable. The survivors retreated underground, where they concentrated on developing their mental abilities, to the extreme that, while they became extremely advanced telepaths, other skills, such as the maintenance of the machines left behind by their ancestors, had atrophied. By the twenty-third century, the planet's surface was only just beginning to support life once again.[1]

Some time prior to 2257, Terran Emperor Philippa Georgiou ordered the orbital bombardment of Talos IV, destroying the Talosians "and their stupid, singing plants."[2]
