Capricorn is the ancient name for the colony of Caprica in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In astrology, it is the tenth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Goat.

The Colony

The Twelve Colonies were founded by tribes from Kobol, the birthplace of humanity. Two thousand years prior to the present (42YR), a disaster of a now forgotten nature forced the tribes to abandon their home. They journeyed to the Cyrannus Star System (a cluster of two binary systems) located two thousand light years away from Kobol. Capricorn was the original name of the colony of Caprica.


In astrology, Capricornus or Capricorn (Latin: “Goat-horned”), is called the Goat. It is the tenth sign of the zodiac, governing the period from about December 22 to about January 19.

One explanation of the fishtail, with which the goat is often represented, is found in the ancient Greek story of Pan, who, to avoid the monster Typhon, jumped into the water just as he was changing into animal shape. The half above water assumed the shape of a goat while the lower half, the tail, assumed the shape of a fish.[1]
