Additional Information

A flattop is a type of salvage and repair ship in the Fleet, acting as a mobile spacedock. A Flattop-type ship is among the first vessels to join the Fleet (TRS: "Miniseries"). Later a flattop-type is among the ships with Galactica when New Caprica falls (TRS: "Precipice").

There are at least four flattop-type ships in the Fleet, including the Carina (lost during the passage through a star cluster) and the Virgon Express (noted for flying "upside down" whilst in flight).
