Tauron - Battlestar Galactica


Tauron

Tauron is the home planet of the Battlestar Pegasus and its captain, Admiral Helena Cain. The planets name is based on the Zodiac constellation, Taurus the Bull. The planet Tauron features in the Caprica series. Tauron is the home world of Sam Adama and his brother Joseph Adama who grew up there before their parents were killed by the security forces.

In Dirteaters, we see the Adama`s past on Tauron. The planet is controlled by a dictatorship and there is an uprising. The Adamas live with their parents. One night after witnessing a murder, Sam recovers the gun and keeps the gun for himself. The police come round to interrogate the family and get the weapon. The mother and family are interrogated and are ultimately shot forcing the young Adamas to run for their lives after Sam has shot the interrogators.

In order to make his Cylon prototype work, Daniel Graystone turns to the Adamas to get them to steal a device from the Vergis Corporation. The Vergis Corporation is based in Tauron City, the capital of the planet. The company is controlled by Tomas Vergis, a wealthy industralist and competitor to Daniel Graystone. The Adamas agree to do the theft and Sam goes to Tauron to steal the device. During the theft, security guards are killed. Its not the theft that angers Tomas Vergis but the murders. Tomas sets out to destroy Graystone.

Tomas manages to take control of Graystone industries but with the help of the Adama`s, Daniel wins back control. After Daniel wins control, Tomas confronts Daniel where Tomas kills himself. To a Tauron says Tomas, a Tauron should choose where and when he dies and not let it happen without control.

The Taurons were a concept introduced, at least to me anyway as a kid, in the very first early, superior to the color episodes black white episodes. Relics of the Taurons and their MTUs (WERE THE TAURONS in THE SKY IS FALLING the same ones who left the machine in RETURN FROM OUTER SPACE – the machine called a Tauron Matter Transmitter or Taurons' maser device that sends Will to Earth looked a bit different; plus Bolix from Tauron (ALL THAT GLITTERS) is looks nothing like the Taurons from THE SKY IF FALLING . The Space Family Robinson's meet another Space Family the Tauron family - father Rethso, mother Moela, and boy Lunon from the planet Tauron, in episode and later Inspector Bolix or rather Officer Bolix of Tauron and his two animals, mentions he is from the planet Tauron. I believe the Trader; in addition, mentions being from or least trades the Tauron.
