Scorpia Colony

Original Colony Name/Associated Earth Constellation: Scorpio, the Scorpion
Demonym: Scorpian

Battlestar Libra probably diverges from Battlestar Galactica canon more on the subject of Scorpia Colony than any other. The Battlestar Wiki describes Scorpia as "known for its lush jungles and hot temperatures (TRS: 'The Plan')".

In Battlestar Libra, Scorpia is a world of vast deserts and verdant coastal regions. In addition to the Scorpia Fleet Shipyards, there is also a Colonial Fleet medical campus located in the city of Theseopolis.

The deserts of Scorpia are home to the I'rin clans, tribes of nomads who exist beyond the control of the colony's government. The clans speak a language known as I'rishee (represented by the real world language *Hausa*). They have a tradition that the clans were on Scorpia before the Colonials arrived at the Twelve Worlds from Kobol.
