Battle for the Delphi
|Battle for the Delphi|
|Conflict:||The Discovery and Defense of Earth|
|Date:||ca. 1980 A.D.|
The battle for the Delphi occurs as a result of the ship loosing its place in the Fleet due to engine trouble.
As predicted by Doctor Zee, the Cylons are able to find the ship and begin their attack. Immediately prior to this, Commander Adama orders Colonel Boomer to launch a Viper escort, particularly as the ship contains all the Fleet's children.
As the ship is attacked, Warriors Troy and Dillon aid the ship's civilian crew in evacuating the children to shuttles. Meanwhile, a team lead by Colonel Boomer himself tackle the Raiders, but the ship is already in its death throes. The Cylons break off their attack once the ship is effectively mortally wounded, but all who were aboard apparently escape (1980: "The Super Scouts, Part I").
The Fleet only has 137 kids, all of whom safely made it off the ship.
- Zee tells Adama of his prediction that the children would likely die in space, if they are not sent to Earth.
