Rising Star (TRS)
|Rising Star (TRS)|
|Fate:||Destroyed; flown into Sol upon reaching Earth (Daybreak, Part II)|
Ellen Tigh is placed aboard a MEDEVAC Raptor hailing from the vessel by a copy of the Humanoid Cylon known as John Cavil shortly before it departs from Picon during the Fall (TRS: "No Exit", "The Plan"). She slips in and out of consciousness aboard the ship for three weeks and is attended to (and cryptically mocked by) Cavil before William Adama locates her (TRS: "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down"). She later procures a day-long stay there for her husband and herself, where she apparently meant for him to meet with agents of Tom Zarek (TRS: "Colonial Day").
Rising Star survives the exodus from New Caprica, passage through the star cluster to the algae planet and the Battle of the Ionian Nebula before it would be flown into Sol after the discovery of Earth (TRS: "Exodus, Part II", "The Passage", "He That Believeth in Me", "Daybreak, Part II").
- Though mention throughout Season 1 and in "Scattered", it was first physically seen in "Pegasus" flying just beyond the Pegasus and Galactica in the first shot of the fleet after Admiral Cain's arrival. It would be seen up close first hand in Season 4's "Escape Velocity" and identified as the Rising Star in the tele-movie "The Plan".
- Another vessel of the same design appears in "Razor" as part of the civilian fleet Pegasus encounters.
- Both designs are inspired by the design of Rising Star from the Original Series.
