Battle near Planet Starbuck
|Battle near Planet Starbuck|
|Conflict:||Escape from the Cylons|
|Date:||ca. 1970 A.D.|
|Place:||Near Planet Starbuck|
|Result:||Successful Colonial withdrawal|
During this battle, in which the Galactican Fleet encounters a phalanx of Cylon Raiders, Starbuck's Viper is seriously damaged and forces him to crash-land on a planetoid that he would later call "Planet Starbuck."
Despite the victory at Galaxy's Edge, the Cylons have not discontinued their pursuit of the Fleet. However, this would change, as they would later lull the Fleet and its leadership into a false sense of security, believing that the Cylons had been evaded. This is not the case (1980: "Galactica Discovers Earth, Part I").
