Galactica is the last known surviving battlestar, which leads the "Rag-Tag Fugitive Fleet" on a lonely quest to find Earth.


Throughout the 18 yahren since the Battle at Galaxy's Edge in "The Hand of God", Galactica has been upgraded with new technologies.

Its computer systems and instrumentation are controlled by voice commands, which is introduced in "Murder on the Rising Star". The computer systems are also automated, with each console having both a flatscreen and holographic functions. On the bridge, the voice response programs were keyed to individual voices, so as to avoid conflicting voice commands from other officers within earshot. As of "Armageddon", those features were still being tested, but were functional enough for military use.[1]
