(War of Kings#1 (fb) - BTS) - After disabling the Kree Shield barrier protecting their Empire from outside attacks, the Shi'ar Empire -- led by Vulcan (Gabriel Summers) and directed by General Ka'arduum -- arranged a number of assaults on Kree worlds.
(Guardians of the Galaxy II#13 (fb)) - Vulcan had a Nega-Bomb dropped on Tau Sceptre (as well as Radius Eighteen and Disradi).
Comments: Created by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
The above covers everything we know about Tau Sceptre. To the best of my knowledge, neither the world nor any its inhabitants were pictured.
Tau Sceptre was lumped in the same description as Disradi and Radius Eighteen, as all three had Nega-Bombs used against them. Disradi and Radius Eighteen were confirmed as destroyed; Tau Sceptre was presumably destroyed.
Maybe some writer will read this someday and flesh it out somewhat.
Tau is the 19th letter in the Greek alphabet. Presumably its use in an alien world is a translation of some equivalent alien language.
