Additional Information

Striker is a Colonial Celestra type vessel that escapes the Fall of the Twelve Colonies with the battlestar Galactica and its fleet (TRS: "Miniseries")

It remains aligned to Commander William Adama during the short-lived schism between the military and civilian governments following Sharon "Boomer" Valerii's botched assassination attempt on Adama (TRS: "Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part II").

During an unrep between Striker and a refinery ship, both are minimally damaged due to the incompetent oversight of recently-promoted Captain George Birch, Galactica's CAG (TRS: "Home, Part I").


  • Striker is unlisted on the Roslin/Baltar election board. In the chyron over Striker while it unreps before colliding with the refinery ship, the refinery is listed only as "Tanker," likely indicating that "Striker" is a designation rather than a name. It can be posited that Striker was destroyed sometime between "Home, Part I" and the election in "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II," though neither dialogue nor the survivor counts from that span of episodes reflect such an event.
