Caprica was settled by the Capricorn tribe of Kobol. Its capital city is Caprica City.
The Twelve Colonies spin around a single star on elliptical orbits. Caprica is in the second closest orbit to the sun. It is in the Trojan orbit of planets -- three worlds following the same orbital path, separated by roughly the same distance (one-sixth the orbit's diameter). In order, these planets are Aquaria, Caprica, and Virgon. They are centers of art, culture, and system-wide trade.
Qualai University is located in the Caprican city of Qualai. They have degree programs in many fields including Mathematics, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, Computer Sciences, and Physics. ("Know Thy Enemy")
