Additional Information

The battlestar Athena served during the Cylon War.

Saul Tigh served admirably aboard this ship as a Viper pilot, earning a number of medals. [1]


  • Given her participation in the Cylon War, Athena is almost certain to be one of the twelve original battlestars like her sister, Galactica. However, there is not 100% proof that Athena's actual class is the same as Galactica. It can not be confirmed with this little information.
  • The series bible implys that the "Athena" was one of only three ships of Galactica's class to survive the war. As such it is likely that the "Athena" was one of the Battlestars involved in "Operation Raptor Talon".

    • "Tigh joined the Colonial Officer Candidate School and was reassigned as a Viper pilot, something he excelled in, earning a string of medals in his post aboard the battlestar Athena."
