Caprica is the name of one of the Twelve Colonies in both the Re-imagined Series and Original Series. In both series, it is the cultural and governmental hub for the Twelve Colonies.

The planet is named after the constellation of Capricorn/Capricornus from the Zodiac. This constellation itself is commonly associated with the goat nymph Amalthea (Capra meaning she-goat) who, according to Greek Mythology, raised Zeus and was later placed into the heavens by him.

Amalthea is symbolised by the cornucopia overflowing with fruits and grain which reflects Caprica's material and cultural affluence.

For the spin-off that depicts the events leading up to the Cylon War in the Re-imagined Series, see Caprica series.
