Torgo is a star system in the Epsilon Sector, and one of the major military strongholds of the Terran Confederation. It is known to the Kilrathi as "Ko'bar Yagar".

Torgo is located near the Terran-Kilrathi border, and is a vital asset to the Terrans in the ongoing Terran-Kilrathi War. Torgo was the center for dozens of major military operations and vessels across the Terran Confederation, and it hosted a jump point that led directly to Kilrah. It hosted the Epsilon Sector Command. The holding of this system was vital to Terran security. It is unknown what its civilian population was.

Torgo saw extensive action throughout the War, but came to the spotlight in 2669 when Admiral Geoffrey Tolwyn unveiled the TCS Behemoth, a super capital ship designed to destroy entire planets, namely Kilrah. The vessel was to be escorted to Kilrah where it would destroy the Kilrathi homeworld and end the War. The vessel may or may not have been constructed entirely within the system, but it was here that its service began.

The Behemoth was to be escorted by the TCS Victory and her task force, seeing as Colonel Christopher Blair was serving with this fleet. The task force joined Tolwyn and the Behemoth at Torgo, where they defended the massive vessel from Kilrathi attack. The Behemoth was then deployed for its first major test in the Loki System.

Torgo was captured by the Kilrathi during the final days of the War, and they still occupy parts of the system. Torgo's Sector HQ became the scene of the historical signing of the Treaty of Torgo on 2669.275, which officially ended the Terran-Kilrathi War following the destruction of Kilrah. It is unknown what has become of the Terran and Kilrathi forces within the system since then.

Sometime between 2669 and 2681, Torgo became part of the Union of Border Worlds.
