Significance Paulie complains that Taurons would get blamed for the criminal actions of "respectable" Virgons.

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


Also called "The Blue Colony" because of its oceans and blue-tinted plant life, Virgon was the birthplace of colonial language and culture, and its capital, Boskirk, was the first city of the colonies for nearly a thousand years. However, a long and costly war between Virgon and its neighbor Leonis led to the Virgon Empire's gradual decline, and paved the way for the rise of Caprica. Virgon is the only remaining monarchy in the colonies, although the Royal Family's role is largely ceremonial and day-to-day administration is carried out by the planetary parliament.[1]
