Proxima Colony was a Human settlement located near Earth.

In 2154, after a group of Human Augments commandeered a Klingon Bird-of-Prey and murdered the crew, threatening to start a war between Earth and the Klingon Empire, a Klingon warship was spotted near Proxima colony, possibly conducting reconnaissance for a future strike. (ENT: "Borderland")

Later that year, Rigelians were hired by the Klingons to kidnap Doctor Phlox and transport him to Qu'Vat colony. The Rigelians filed a false flight plan listing Proxima colony as their destination. (ENT: "Affliction")

It is likely that this colony existed on one of the planets orbiting Proxima Centauri. It is unclear whether the Alpha Centauri colony is the same colony or another one in the Alpha Centauri system.
According to the Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library ("Federation Historical Highlights, 2161-2385"), Proxima (Alpha Centauri IV, Velestus) was an inhabited planet in the Proxima Centauri star system. This planet had two moons, named Nykos and Tharon. The Proxima colony was founded on this planet in 2085. In 2161, this planet was a founding member of the UFP. In the late 24th century, the capitals of this world were Cochrane and Tarola'n. The primary species of this planet was Human, with a population of 380 million.
