  • Notes

    • The colonist's planet is referred to as Tau Cygna 5. Assuming they are referring to a star in the constellation of Cygnus, the correct designation is Tau Cygni 5. According to the conventions of the International Astronomical Union, a star takes its designation from the Latin genitive case form of the name of the constellation it is associated with. Thus, Centaurus, Centauri, Cygnus, Cygni.
