Quantum Mechanix The Twelve Colonies of Kobol

The Twelve Colonies (Twelve Worlds, Four Systems) were founded by Twelve Tribes from Kobol, the birthplace of humanity. There were originally thirteen tribes, but one tribe went to a planet called Earth. The constellations of New Earth's Zodiac will be named after the ancient names of these colonies.
