The Battle of Sector 12 was an engagement that took place in the 10th year of the First Cylon War.


The Battle of Sector 12 took place sometime within two days between the departure of Wild Weasel (Raptor 909) from the battlestar Galactica and its subsequent arrival by sublight to Sector 12 near Cylon-controlled space, where they were to rendezvous with the battlestar Archeron.


After detecting Archeron on DRADIS, Lieutenant Coker Fasjovik, Ensign William "Husker" Adama and Doctor Beka Kelly discover the remains of Archeron, with apparently no survivors.

Shortly after this discovery, they are attacked by three Cylon Raiders. Under orders not to engage the enemy, the Raptor crew attempt to evade the Raiders despite the Cylons' speed advantage. Using the debris field as a maze, Adama successfully out maneuvers the Cylons, succeeding in destroying two enemy fighters. Under fire from the remaining Raider, Adama pilots the Raptor into the fuselage of Archeron, finding the FTL drive intact and using it destroy the pursuing Cylon ship (TRS: "Blood and Chrome").
