The Cylon War, later referred to as the First Cylon War, is a twelve-year major conflict between the humans of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol and their creations, the Cylons. A definitive point in history for both humanity and the Cylons, the Cylon War paves the way for the Fall of the Twelve Colonies more than forty years later.

Early Years[edit]

A summary of the conflict up to the Flight of Daidalos.

Initially referred to as the Cylon uprising, the Cylons began warring with their creators in what is an overall protracted stalemate.

In response, the Articles of Colonization were created to assist in fighting the menace. As an incentive to sign, each Colony is offered its own Jupiter-class battlestar as part of its own military force, under the aegis of Colonial Fleet. The first of the Jupiters, Galactica, launches under the command of Admiral Jubal Sarkis and disappears two weeks following its depolyment.

Despite resistance, four additional Jupiters continue to launch, including Picon's Athena.

The Cylons attack Picon Fleet Headquarters just days prior to Athena's delivery to Picon's defense fleet.
