Additional Information

Baltifer's basestar[1] is a large capital warship within the Cylon Empire, and the command ship from which Baltifer leads the extermination of the remnants of mankind in an alternate reality.

Following the Battle of Cimtar, Baltar is assigned the drone Lucifer in this task. With the help of Zee, who betrayed humanity in order to find ways to preserve his own life, the two were fused together into a cybernetic amalgamate calling itself "Baltifer."

As Baltifer prevents Zee from replicating this for himself, Zee is forced to find other ways to achieve his goals of life-extension; this results in the creation of experimentation centers aboard the baseship, as well as holding cells for subjects overseen by large machines, Cylon Wardens (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #2 & #3).

Using technology reverse-engineered from the creations devised by a more benevolent Zee, the alternate Doctor Zee outfits the chronal cannon and the temporal warp drive on the baseship, and both technologies were tested at Cache (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #4).

During the resultant Battle of Cache, Adama and a temporally displaced version of his son Apollo transport themselves to the basestar. Due to the later timely intervention of an incongruous Galactica deploying its signal disruptor, Adama is able to kill Baltifer and free the imprisoned humans aboard, fully assuming command of the baseship for its later defense of another Galactica during the Nebula Ambush (Classic Battlestar Galactica Vol. 2 #5).
