Solaria is the name of a Colonial battlestar in both series.

New Series

The name of a battlestar, featuring integrated command and control systems, and featuring Dr. Gaius Baltar's Comand Navigation Programme (CNP). She is reported as lost, along with the Columbia and Triton.

Notes

  1. According to information released by Zoic, the Solaria was one of the second batch of seven battlestars constructed at the time of the Cylon War, the others being: Triton, Pacifica, Acropolis, Prometheus, Argo and Poseidon.
  2. During the opening of the Mini-Series, Aaron Doral states that the Battlestar Galactica is the "last of her kind". This would suggest that:
    • Either the Solaria mentioned later in the mini-series may have been built much later than the original twelve battlestars, possibly as a replacement vessel
    • Or Doral was simply making a point that the Galactica is the only remaining battlestar with non-integrated systems

The Original Series

There is no corresponding battlestar mentioned in the original series, however, costumes were produced to represent warriors from the Solaria, so it can be assumed she was destroyed prior to the attack at Cimtar.

  • The Battlestar Solaria is mentioned in the novelization of the movie as being part of the fleet at Cimtar and she was destroyed. Starbuck was flying in to help save her from a Cylon attack and she broke in two. Perhaps the Solaria was to be the Columbia that was mentioned in Gun on Ice Planet Zero by Cree.
