Additional Information

Celestra type[1] ships are a class of ship used in the Twelve Colonies at least as early as the First Cylon War, during which they served an unknown role assisting battlestar groups (TRS: "Blood and Chrome").

Over forty years later, this type is still utilized by the colonials. At least two, Celestra and Striker, escape with Galactica following the destruction of the Colonies (TRS: "Miniseries") and are later scuttled following the discovery of a second planet called "Earth" (TRS: "Daybreak, Part III").


  • The Celestra type is based on an original series ship design. In that continuity, the ship served as a civilian electronics research ship. It is unknown if it is meant to serve that same role in the re-imagined continuity, or another one all together. Given its presence in the Auxiliary Fleet, it is assumed the ships performed a different role.
