"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

It is reported that this station is equipped with an advanced tracking system,capable of looking up to 30 km into colonial…

The battlestar thermopylae was one of A hand full of nova class battlestars in service with the colonial fleet just before the second cylon invasion;The Nova class was an upgrade from the mercury class;It survived the cylon onslaught probably because it's commander chose not to activate the new CNP program,which the cylons exploited throughout the fleet.

The thermopylae joined with other  surviving colonial fleet elements,and maintained subspace silence in case the cylons were…

People of the BFC fleet,

Two years ago,the first escort of the raven battle group,the Gunstar Trireme(GSR-0201),was sent on it's journey.

We have stood in defense of the BFC flagship,the Battlestar Raven(BFC-002),In our continuing conflict with the cylons,to keep the colonies safe.

We have added our firepower to that of the raven's,and supported the action of her best asset,The raven air wing.

We have taken our share of bumps and bruises;And returned the same to…

That does make sense, thank's for the clarification!

One Question, though: In the discussion threat regarding Operations aboard The Raven here it is stated that: "OP's always take place on a Saturday night at 10:PM EST." However, the dates that were sent to me by Cpt. Morelock is the 13th, 20th, or 27th - all of which are Sundays. 
Because of time zones, 10:00 PM EST means 04:00 AM for me - so in the case of the 20th or 27th that's 04:00 AM from Sunday to Monday. 
This is fairly inconvenient because of work. I will be able to report for duty at this time once, but for the future, it would be good to know whether or not the rule stated for Operations regarding The Raven still stands in general. Operations between Saturday and Sunday would be much more convenient!

many apologies for this late reply to your message of 26th July,  I'm afraid I have only just read it. I will do my best to honour the legendary Perseus! I have been able to recruit two new pilots already. 

If you need a Viper flight for the Trireme at any time,  I could send a detachment on TAD.

Thanks Leonidas,

Thank you for the welcome sir.
It's been a dream of mine to serve on a battlestar since I first saw the Galactica back when I was only 4 years old, and now my dream has come true.
So, while I am greatful for your offer to serve with you and your fine crew, I just can't walk away from my life long dream of serving on a battlestar.
Bust rest assured sir, while I may be crew on the raven, I and my fellow marines will do our best to protect not just the Raven, but all our brothers and sisters within the battlegroup and the 12 colonies.
