Additional Information

The Yellow-hulled Vessel[1] was a transport ship in the Twelve Colonies.

At least three such vessels survived the initial attacks, but one was left behind to be destroyed by the Cylons. The two FTL-capable ones are part of the Fleet (TRS: "Act of Contrition," "Six Degrees of Separation," "Flesh and Bone").

One of the vessels was also seen orbiting Cloud 9 when Gina Inviere's nuclear bomb destroyed the luxury liner and three surrounding vessels, including the vessel itself; the explosive force having pushed out from Cloud 9 and striking a Colonial Movers ship, and then striking both the Yellow Vessel and a Long-Necked Vessel. Both were destroyed instantly (TRS: "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II").

The second survives beyond the exodus from New Caprica (TRS: "The Son Also Rises") and the Battle of the Ionian Nebula. It is later flown into Sol following the discovery of second Earth (TRS: "Daybreak, Part II").
