Taurons were a mute humanoid species that wore simple tunics and jewelry.
The Taurons may be from the planet Tauron. The name of their species was not revealed until "Return from Outer Space".Professor John Robinson,does mention the Colonist family as Taurons,at the end of the episode The Sky is Falling..In episode All That Glitters (LiS episode).,Officer Bolix mentions,he is of the Intergalactic Police Force,who has a main headquarters on Tauron.
- the planet Tauron is mentioned at the end of the episode the The Space Trader (LiS episode) as having a space trade fair,to which the Trader wishes to visit.
- One possible way the Robinsons could have learned the name of this mute alien race is if they (the Taurons) were psionically empathic like Gem from the Star Trek (TOS) episode The Empath.
