(Presumed) Battle of Caprica Fall of Djerba (Eventually) Operation Clean Sweep


The Fall of Djerba was a conflict between Colonial and Cylon forces that ended with the capture of the resort moon Djerba by rebelling Cylons early in the First Cylon War. After their victory, the Cylons used the moon as a communications relay, and as an outpost for carrying out biological experiments on human subjects and storing spare human body parts.

Despite reconnaissance missions to the moon, Djerba remained in Cylon control for the majority of the War, even after Colonial units sabotaged the comm relay ten years after its capture (Blood and Chrome).
