Pisces is the ancient name for the colony of Picon in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In astrology, it is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, represented by two Fishes.

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. Pisces was the original name of the colony of Picon.


Pisces (Latin: "Fishes") is the twelfth sign of the zodiac, governing the period from about February 19 to about March 20. Its representation as two fish tied together is usually related to the Ancient Greek story of Aphrodite and Eros, who jumped into a river to escape the monster Typhon and changed into a fish, or, alternatively, the two fish that carried them to safety.[1]
