Taurus is the ancient name for the colony of Tauron in the Battlestar Galactica universe. In astrology, it is the second sign of the zodiac, represented by the Bull.

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. Taurus was the original name of the colony of Tauron.


Taurus (Latin: "Bull") is the second sign of the zodiac, governing that portion of the year from about April 20 to about May 20. Its representation as a bull is related to the Ancient Greek story of Zeus, who assumed the form of a bull to abduct Europa.[1]
