Additional Information


Osiris (0913) is an Orion class Battlestar[1] in the Colonial Fleet, belonging to Battlestar Group 54, during the First Cylon War. It carries a typical crew complement of 150, not counting assigned Viper pilots.

History

Osiris is generally believed to have been destroyed in an earlier engagement, when in fact it is part of a Colonial "ghost fleet" hiding in Cylon held space, along with the battlestar Valkyrie, the heavy cruiser Loki, and other vessels. It is tasked with a combat jump to the ice planet Djerba, a former winter resort moon in Sector 12. When a Cylon basestar jumps in nearby, the ship demonstrates possible stealth characteristics that afford it a small window of opportunity to operate within enemy DRADIS range. The ship is eventually detected and engaged by Cylon Raiders and ship to ship missiles. Osiris takes heavy damage at the onset of the battle, which destroys its missile launch capabilities. Commander Ozar makes the decision to ram the ship into the basestar and manually detonate the on-board nuclear warheads instead. Osiris and the attacking basestar are instantly destroyed with the loss of all hands, minus Jim Kirby (Blood and Chrome).
