Battlestar Galactica Map of the 12 Colonies
From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide
Battlestar Galactica Map of the 12 Colonies is a Quantum Mechanix product depicting the The Twelve Colonies Of Kobol as seen in the Re-imagined Series and its spin-off Caprica. According to Quantum Mechanix, the map's status is official. However, according to Jane Espenson, quoted in an interview with io9, the status of information on the map is "quasi-canon" (used only in production and subject to future revision).
The map was made over the course of one year with the help of writer Jane Espenson and scientific advisor Kevin Grazier while graphic designer Geoffrey Mandel "created the map from scratch". In an interview with io9, the map drew inspiration from Bob Harris's book Beyond Caprica: A Vistor's Pocket Guide to the Twelve Colonies as well as Kevin Grazier's "Astronomy of the Twelve Colonies", which he wrote based on the "series bible" and the first two scripts of "33" and "Water".
Picon's description inaccurately claims Queenstown is Caprica's capital, instead of Picon.
