|Chapter Twelve - Galactica
|First Cylon War
|Recovery of Galactica
Despite breaking their word to Clothos by order of Lucinda Cain, Clothos follows through with their part of the agreement to return Galactica and her surviving crew to Colonial Fleet. This redemption is staged at Caprica Terminal, which has since fallen silent.
Arrival at Caprica Terminal
A fleet commanded by Lucinda Cain jumps to Caprica Terminal twenty hours after the Terminal becomes silent, believing it to be a trap laid by the Cylons.
They find Galactica docked at the Terminal along with various derelict civilian crafts in the surrounding area. Launching a Raptor team with marines, the marines board the Terminal and establish communications with Praetor Samanta Agathon: she and the surviving Galactica crew are separated from their ship. Agathon advises that her crew needs time to board Galactica and leave the station.
Praetor Agathon's crew readies Galactica as a Cylon fleet jumps in and engage, while Agathon herself remains behind on Caprica Terminal to investigate something that they have come across.
As the Colonial Fleet's ships draw closer, they discover that the disabled civilian crafts have been rigged to explode like proximity mines.
Colonial Fleet engages the Cylons about Caprica Terminal, with Agathon reporting that the Terminal itself has been used by the Cylons to create interference and false data in the IDRIS network to undermine navigational data throughout Cyrannus.
This mission provides the following rewards upon completion:
- This is a Battlestar Wiki descriptive term.
- Note that battle sequences are affected by strategies deployed by the game participant, and thus different ships and battle scenarios make this particular sequence unique to this particular gaming session.
- This is not mentioned in the Mission Briefing, but Galactica becomes a playable unit (under the command of Silas Nash) after this mission's conclusion.
