Additional Information
Galleon in the separate continuity
Galleon in the primary continuity

Galleon is the name used to describe the "great ship" that carried the twelve tribes from Kobol, starting the exodus that leads the tribes to discover twelve inhabitable worlds, on which they founded the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

According to the Sacred Scrolls, the ship left from Galleon Meadow on Kobol ca. 2,000 years prior to the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (TRS: "Home, Part I"). Archaeological evidence suggests, that the surviving refugees first made landfall on Gemenon around the same period (Battlestar Galactica Map of the 12 Colonies).


  • In the real world, a galleon was a large, multi-decked sailing ship used primarily by the nations of Europe from the sixteenth to early eighteenth centuries. Despite common perceptions, a galleon was not a ponderous transport ship, but more a kind of warship.
