The Tau Ceti System is a star system in the constallation of Cetus, located just under twelve light years from Earth and controlled by the United Earth Directorate. Doran Routhe took shelter here to escape from the media after the "Gantris Disaster." The system features some "comet farms."[1]


It appears that Tau Ceti was originally slated for a much earlier mention in the StarCraft universe; in the storyline of the StarCraft beta, the protoss carried out a massacre of terrans on one of the system's planets.[2]
