A view of Tauron City

Minos, colloquially known to Capricans by the nickname Tauron City[1], is a prominent metropolis on the planet Tauron.

It is home to the Vergis Corporation whose CEO Tomas Vergis helped design the meta-cognitive processor that was eventually stolen by Graystone Industries for the Cylon prototype (CAP: "Know Thy Enemy").


  • In Greek mythology, Minos was the first king of the island of Crete, son of Zeus and Europa.
  • During the "Caprica is burning" monologue in "The Plan" there is a city that looks remarkably similar to Tauron City. However, it is assumed to be a city on Libran because that world is mentioned when the shot of that city is seen.
