Significance Scorpion Ambrosia

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


A world of untamed tropical jungles punctuated by rugged mountain ranges, Scorpia is a popular vacation destination for the other colonies. Its inhabitants, though pious and family-oriented, are known for their religious tolerance and accommodating nature. Tourism is one of the planet's major industries.[1]


The Twelve Colonies are located in the Cyrannus Star System. Scorpia is in the second orbit of the Helios Gamma star in that system. The planet is encircled by a half ring. The colonies Sagittaron and Libran also orbit this star. [2]


After-hours trading occurs on this planet. The Scorpia Mills corporation is headquartered here. ("Reins of a Waterfall") ("Unvanquished")


106 Scorpion Ambrosia

Scorpion Ambrosia

Scorpion Ambrosia is a liquor imported from the colony. Most Capricans dislike it because they think it is too strong and tastes like sulfur. "Scorpion Marsh Genuine Ambrosia" is a rare brand of Scorpion Ambrosia. There may be only eleven bottles in existence in the Twelve Worlds. ("The Imperfections of Memory")
