The Factory is a location in the series Colony. Very little is known about The Factory but it appears to be a slave labor facility, controlled by the Transitional Authority and, presumably, The Hosts.
We get a sample of what The Factory is about from Carlton Cuse:
"In order to gain more control over them, the Redhats even try to forcibly separate loved ones, order shoot-on-sight curfews and in the end send the guilty to the Factory. "
-Colony Executive producer Carlton Cuse
Nothing is known about the history of The Factory. It was later revealed that the Factory is located on the Earth's moon. Carlos was seen working in the Factory, alive.
- The way Carlos' group is processed when arriving at The Factory strongly resembles WWII film of concentration camps
- The set used for The Factory is the same set used in the 2009 Star Trek reboot film as the Enterprise's communications room.
