Battle of Cimtar Clean Operation at the Path to Carillon Battle of Carillon



The Clean Operation at the Path to Carillon is a operation to passage through the Nova of Madagon. This is one of the first destinations of Galactica and her new civilian Fleet after the Battle of Cimtar.

The Council of Twelve debate the Fleet's destination. Believing Carillon is too far to travel because of the food shortage, Uri suggests the planet Borallus, but Adama believes it too dangerous. Apollo suggests a shortcut to Carillon via the Nova of Madagon. However, the Cylons had mined the passage, so Vipers are needed to clear a path for the Fleet. Starbuck and Boomer are "volunteered" for the mission.

The Cylons had mined the straits, but Apollo, Starbuck, and Boomer clear the mines in their Vipers, allowing the Fleet to pass through to Carillon. (TOS: "Saga of a Star World")
