His ship, the Rising Star did have printing on a bulkhead that implied this, saying L.S.S. Rising Star.

It was neglected and forgotten, leaving the guards and prisoners to their own devices over the centuries. While incarcerated here, Starbuck memorizes star charts written on the wall of his cell by a mysterious prisoner who had died years before. One of the charts depicted the Solar System of Earth. Proteus was also the code-name used by Karibdis(also spelled "Charybdis"), Baltar's pilot and computer expert who sabotaged the defense computers on Caprica the night the Cylons attacked and was also responsible for framing Starbuck on a rival's murder.
The red planet is the refuge of Count Iblis, after his crash.

Terra is a planet wracked by war caused by two large factions, one referred to as the Eastern Alliance, the other the Western Coalition. The planet was similar to the descriptions of Earth in Colonial legends, leading some to believe that Terra was in fact Earth, however the beings from the "Ship of Light" confirmed that Terra is not Earth. It appears that the planet was settled by a splinter group of the thirteenth tribe. The Terrans use earth like measurements (such as hours and minutes) rather than Colonial measurements of centons and centars. The Terrans (the people of Terra) also use Earth names as compared to Colonial names. "Terra" means "Earth" in Latin and in the Colonial language Gemonese.
