(Redirected from Raid on Scorpia)
The Thousand-Yahren War is the primary conflict between the Cylon Empire and an intergalactic federation including the Twelve Colonies of Man.
This conflict began when the Colonies aided the Hasari in taking back "their nation" from the Cylons. The exact nature of the Hasari and their relationship to the Colonies remains unknown, outside of the fact that the Colonials fought in battles referred to as the Hasari Routs.
