Leo is the ancient name for the colony of Leonis in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In astrology, it is the fifth sign of the zodiac, represented by the Lion.

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. Leo was the original name of the colony of Leonis.


Leo (Latin: “Lion”) is the fifth sign of the zodiac, governing the period from about July 23 to about August 22. Its representation as a lion is usually linked with the Nemean lion slain by Heracles (Hercules).[1]
