Additional Information


Taurella is a diplomatic transport of the Twelve Colonies of Man. In the aftermath of the Battle of Cimtar, the ship holds numerous refugees fleeing the Cylon tyranny in the rag-tag fugitive fleet, notably Countess Sephoni of Scorpion and her court.

Ten Yahrens Alone

Unable to keep pace with the Fleet, Taurella finds itself alone and fending for itself within the first yahren of the exodus in 7348, after it is presumed lost by the Fleet's leadership. Under the psionic guidance of Countess Sephoni, Captain Rekort and his crew are able to trail the Fleet, never being in a position to rejoin it formally (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #1-#2).

While alone in the expanse of space, Sephoni spends her time finding the home of the fabled Thirteenth Tribe, the far-flung colony of Earth, through the use of divination. Believing to hear the thoughts of humans from that colony, she divines the coordinates and reaches out to touch the mind of Xam, a comatose Delta-class telepath aboard the battlestar Galactica, who communicates Taurella's coordinates in 7358 (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #1).

After Major Apollo and his flight wing make contact with Taurella and her crew, they are re-integrated into the Fleet (Battlestar Galactica: Death of Apollo #2).
