Little is known about Victor Taurens. He was lawfully married to Samantha Calderon at some point after the death of her first husband and both daughters in 2236. He died during the Calderon Expedition's penetration/exploration of the Hyades Cluster in 2252 in a collision that destroyed the Aquilla-class transport he was commanding. It is implied but not stated that he was Timothy Calderon's father. He was the namesake for the planet Taurus and by extension, the Taurian Concordat.
