For same named battle in Galactica 1980, see: Battle for the Agricultural Ships

Cylon Raiders slip past the defenses of Blue Squadron, destroying two of the fleet's three agricultural ships. The remaining vessel, Agro Ship Nine, has a breached airlock. Personally inspecting the damage, Colonel Tigh learns that the fleet's entire crop supply was destroyed in the attack.

Adama and the others must agree to certain compromises with old acquaintances and with the inhabitants of a grain-rich, yet politically turbulent planet. (The Magnificent Warriors).
