Taurian Alpha Virus is a virus seen in Season 1 of Dark Matter.


Traugott Corp was researching trees with long lifespans on the planet Taurian Alpha. The purpose was to see if their chemical structure could be turned into a drug that would make humans immortal. Instead the virus was accidentally created.


The virus, believed to be transferred via bodily fluids, causes those infected to become mindless cannibals. Symptoms show within three hours of exposure. There is no cure, and no one has ever had a successful immune response prior to Portia Lin becoming infected from a bite to her neck. Lin experienced no adverse effects from the virus, but after she had been cleared of infection she discovered that her bite wound had miraculously healed.
