|Battle for the Agricultural Ships|
|Conflict:||The Discovery and Defense of Earth|
|Date:||ca. 1980 CE|
- For same named battle in Original Series, see: Battle for the Agricultural Ships (TOS).
Despite Galactican interception by D Squadron, the Cylons are successful in destroying all the Fleet's agricultural ships, forcing them to begin an agricultural colony on Earth (1980: "Space Croppers").
The Cylons use only regular Raider craft for the attack and not the A-B Raider. This may indicate that the Cylons either did not believe it necessary for the A-B Raiders to be deployed in this mission, or that the A-B Raiders are few in number.
