'''''Triton''''' is a [[Colonial]] [[battlestar]], destroyed during the [[Cylon Holocaust]] in both series. It is named after one of the [[Lords of Kobol]].
Please choose a specific reference for the name, '''Triton''':
==[[RDM Battlestar Galactica|New Series]]==
*For information on the battlestar from the [[Battlestar Galactica (RDM)|Re-imagined Series]], see [[Triton (TRS)]].
*For information on the battlestar from the [[Battlestar Galactica (TOS)|Original Series]], see [[Triton (TOS)]].
*For information on the ship in the [[The Fleet (RDM)|Fleet]] where [[Romo Lampkin]] lives, see [[Triton (civilian ship)]].
The name of a [[battlestar]], featuring integrated command and control systems, and featuring Dr. [[Gaius Baltar]]'s [[Command Navigation Program]] (CNP). She is reported as lost, along with the ''[[Columbia]]'' and ''[[Solaria]]''.
In [[33]], [[Sharon Valerii|Sharon]] calls [[Crashdown]] "a refugee from Triton," not "from <i>the</i> Triton", suggesting there may be also a settlement named "Triton." Then again, Battlestar Galactica is often referred to as just "Galactica" (e.g. "... it's not safe to remain on Galactica").
# According to information released by [[Zoic]], the ''Triton'' was one of the second batch of seven battlestars constructed at the time of the [[Cylon War]], the others being: ''[[Solaria]]'', ''Pacifica'', ''Acropolis'', ''Prometheus'', ''Argo'' and ''Poseidon''.
# 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 ''Triton'' 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

Though not specifically seen on screen, the name of the ''Triton'' is mentioned in connection when the Cylons attack on the fleet at [[Cimtar (TOS)|Cimtar]] ([[Saga of a Star World]]), along with the ''[[Acropolis]]'' and ''[[Pacifica]]'' - so it can be assumed that these three were the  three unnamed battlestars seen with the ''[[Atlantia]]'' and ''[[Galactica]]'' at Cimtar.
