What is the source for designation as "flagship" in RDM?)

Admiral Nagala was commanding the fleet from Atlantia. Since he was the ranking flag officer, Atlantia was his flagship. --April Arcus 00:43, 27 December 2005 (EST)


How can Atlantia be old enough that a young Adama made his thousandth landing there, and new enough to serve as Nagala's flagship during the Cylon attack? --April Arcus 18:12, 8 January 2006 (EST)

Answer is simple: How could the USS Missouri be old enough to be a veteran of World War II, yet still be used for combat in the First Persian Gulf War? There were 12 original battlestars; it was never said that they were "decommissioned"; Galactica is "the last of her kind" that she was never given an extensive refit/update. Possibly all of the original 12 battlestars could still have been in service, including Atlantia, but they were giving full overhauls and their hulls refitted with modern technology and networked computers. The USS Missouri was put through extensive refits to modernize its internal machinery; it had laser-guided cruise-missiles for PGW I. I mean there's precedence of this kind of thing in the real world. The difference with Galactica is that it was never significantly refitted or overhauled (presumbably, sliding automatic doors, cordless telephones, etc. were put into Atlantia during a refit, as Doral points out that these aren't on other battlestars anymore). --Ricimer 18:42, 8 January 2006 (EST)
I agree with Ricimer, although nowhere in any information I've found indicate that all 12 original battlestars survived the first war. The flagship Atlantia could be a modern replacement, as with many of the battlestars we hear of with the same names. Like the original USS Enterprise in "Star Trek", Galactica may be one of the few (if not only) original battlestar to survive fully intact after her original tour. We just don't know, but that's a logical assumption, especially in light of her conversion into a museum, an honor for any ship of distinction. --Spencerian 18:52, 8 January 2006 (EST)

TOS Atlantia blowing up

I've got a pretty good capture of Atlantia blowing up, but all it amounts to is a side view of a battlestar with some explosion effects superimposed. If somebody thinks it is worthwhile I could upload it and add it here (or to the Battle of Cimtar). --Steelviper 09:12, 10 January 2006 (EST)

Sounds good to me; there could almost never be enough pictures of explosions here. --Spencerian 09:21, 10 January 2006 (EST)

Which way round?

At the moment we have the RMD story before the TOS. Shouldn't it be the other way round chronologically. Alternatively perhaps there should be a separate page for each. --Grafix 11:43, 13 March 2006 (CST)

One ship was mentioned-only (RDM) and the second is seen (TOS). The two should have their own articles. That way, the TOS ship can have a ship data template since we know some information on TOS Atlantia's configuration. The RDM Atlantia should have a mentioned-only page, no template (we have no idea what kind of battlestar this was, or if there were more classes than what has been shown). --Spencerian 10:25, 19 May 2006 (CDT)

Are we sure on the name?

Some new evidence suggests that it is really called Battlestar Atlantis --> [1]. --Bp 20:47, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

Gotta love Japanese/Chinese bootlegs! :-) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 21:44, 23 May 2007 (CDT)
How do you figure out it's "Atlantis" from that picture? I don't see it named anywhere, unless it's named in the Chinese/Japanese text (which I can't read). --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 07:37, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
It has the characters from Stargate Atlantis on it. That's the joke :p --Serenity 07:43, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
Ah. I know about the existence of Stargate Atlantis, I just never watched it, that's why I didn't get it. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 07:57, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
Damn, that's funny. And let's not confuse it further with Battlestar Atlantis. The power and humor of Engrish knows no bounds. --09:07, 24 May 2007 (CDT)
