Chiron is a fictional planet in Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. Located in the Alpha Centauri system, it is where the game begins as the Earthling crew and colonists aboard the Unity organize themselves into factions and escape the ship in colony pods.


  • Chiron's name may be taken from 2060 Chiron, a minor planet orbiting the Sun between Saturn and Uranus. It may have also come from the mythical centaur Chiron, referred to by Homer as "the wisest and justest of all the centaurs."
