* It is unknown if it is designated as a battlestar or as a support vessel for battlestar groups. Oines calls the ship a Berzerk Fleet Escort, but it is not an official source.

* The name is most likely derived from ''[[w:Berserker|Berserker]]'': Germanic warriors who, according to Norse Mythology, fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury.
* Though the ships weaponry is deemed "classified", one can see by observation that it appearantly possesses 10 point-defense dual KEWs, 10 primary dual KEWs, and 8 "3-barreled" turrets that appearantly must be some sort of ship-to-ship missile turrets. There are also two tubes that protrude from the ships bow, which could be some formof heavy cannons. The ship also boasts a hangar on its underside, though it is unknown whether or not it carries any Vipers or Raptors.

** "By analyzing the ship's design and statistics, my opinion is that the Berzerker operates as a gunboat that is used with a battlestar to supplement its firepower or to be used in small civilian convoys for protection." - an opinion from this article's author.

Additional Information


Berzerk is a support ship in service with the Colonial Fleet sometime prior to the Fall of the Twelve Colonies.

The ship was docked near the battlestar Pegasus (BS 62) at the Scorpion Fleet Shipyards when the Cylons struck as part of their attack on the Colonies. It is destroyed by multiple Raider squadrons after the Cylons shut down the ship's systems by exploiting a backdoor in the Command Navigation Program (TRS: "Razor").


Notes

  • The name is most likely derived from Berserker: Germanic warriors who, according to Norse Mythology, fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury.
