Libran is a planet in the Cyrannus Star System, orbiting the Helios Gamma star. Libra is the ancient name of the colony, which was named after one of the Twelve Tribes of Kobol.


The dense jungles and hot, stormy climate of Libran make it an unlikely candidate for colonization and for centuries it remained a largely uninhabited wilderness preserve. It was therefore surprising to many when the planet was chosen as the home of the Inter-Colonial Court, which tries all cases that fall across colony lines. Its only large city, Themis, hosts several major universities and law schools as well as a state-of-the-art arena, although it has been unable to attract a pyramid franchise. [1]
