Auron is a planet that was colonized by humans as a scientific research facility. Research on the planet developed a number of advanced technologies, and ultimately led to the creation of a cloning technique that evolved the inhabitants of the planet into a separate species, called the Auronar.
Auron was a planet aligned with the United Federation of Planets, but remained independent of the Terran Federation until Servalan released a deadly pathogen on the planet's surface. The planet was left uninhabited after this, quarantined against any colonization even during the reign of the Imperium of Man.
Auron is derived from Blake's 7.
