Additional Information

The Armistice Station is a remote space station, built with the intent of allowing both Cylons and the Twelve Colonies to maintain diplomatic relations after the Cylon War.

The station is manned on an annual basis by a Colonial armistice officer. The last armistice officer maintains a few items on the negotiation desk in the meeting room of the station, suggesting the isolated and unproductive nature of his assignment:

The Cylons ignore the Armistice Station and all overtures of diplomacy for forty years. In their only visit, a Number Six, escorted by two contemporary Centurions, boards the station and briefly interacts with the armistice officer, before the station is destroyed in the opening salvo of the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").



The Armistice Officer's shuttle docks at the Armistice Station (TRS: "Miniseries, Night 1").

The Armistice Station features the seals of the two formerly warring factions above the base of its docking tube: the Cylons, indicated by a blue-green double-stroke pentagon (a nod to the design on Raiders from the Original Series); and the Colonial Phoenix seal with ring featuring two sets of prongs, e.g. "ears," a nod to the Original Series logos found on fire extinguishers and other medical equipment.

Effects Gaffe

Of further note, the logos swap places between the Armistice Officer's shuttle docking sequence and when the station is destroyed by a missile from the Cylon basestar, thus beginning the Fall of the Twelve Colonies.
