The Teleplay System is an unreleased online system for the Sega Mega Drive developed by Baton Technologies.

The peripheral was designed to allow Mega Drive (or NES) customers to play each other over the internet using a specialised 2,400bps modem. The project was ambitious, claiming to allow cross-platform play and well support IBM PC AT-spec keyboards, without the approval of either Sega or Nintendo. Baton Technologies had planned to release it in the Spring of 1993[1].

Space-ship shooter Terran Wars was the only compatible game announced for the system, though Baton planned for an extra eight releases across 1993, all of which were presumably cancelled alongside the system.
