From the dialogue of the premiere, one could get the impression that all the colonies were floating around a single star (or binary star). Omega says "launching to all outer planets"... which gives that impression.

But I always envisioned Caprica as a "central" location in a much larger grouping of solar systems. Like our solar system. So each planet had it's own set-up.

It'd be REALLY tricky to get 12 planets twirling around a single sun, make all of them habitable, and not run the risk of them crashing into each other. Not impossible, but near to it.
