Earth is the destination for the remaining Colonials after the Battle of Cimtar, which effectively ends the Thousand-Yahren War with the Cylons.

As written in the Book of the Word and other scriptures, Earth is home to the Thirteenth Tribe and it is assumed by members of the rag-tag, fugitive Fleet that Earth has ample defenses to take on the Cylon Empire.

Without the aid of the Seraphs, who give the Fleet a warping system known as the temporal overdrive in 7347, Earth is virtually unattainable in the Colonials's current generation—the journey would take thousands of yahrens. However, in 7362, Commander Apollo and Colonel Athena decide on one last, massive jump using the overdrive, which allows the Fleet to make it to Earth (War of Eden 1).
