Adama: Maybe it would have been better for us to have died quickly, back on the Colonies with our families, instead of dying out here slowly, in the emptiness of dark space. Life here began out there. Those are the first words of the sacred scrolls. And they made it perfectly clear that we are not alone in this universe.
Intergalactic travelers and stargazers need never be lost in the Cyrannus star system if they have this in their back pocket: the first and only official map of the 12 Colonies of Kobol.
It's the most authoritative and complete rendering of the Colonies that's ever made. This richly detailed illustration from QMx features a wealth of information on each colony – everything from population stats and local attractions to pyramid team names and brief histories.
One year in the making, the Map of the 12 Colonies of Kobol was developed in collaboration with Battlestar Galactica Co-Executive Producer (and Executive Producer of Caprica) Jane Espenson, whose signature appears on the map.
Dr. Kevin R. Grazier of NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who was science adviser on Battlestar Galactica and co-author of The Science of Battlestar Galactica, served as science adviser in the making of this map.
Hollywood graphic designer Geoffrey Mandel created the map from scratch, making countless revisions as the technical data underwent painstaking scrutiny. The full-color map measures 26" x 39" and is printed on 100-pound satin-finish paper. Suitable for framing and for hours of enjoyment – especially if you like gazing at heavenly bodies in their relative orbits. At just $14.95, you can get one Map of the 12 Colonies of Kobol for yourself and one for your favorite Battlestar fan. Map ships rolled and poly bagged.
