"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."

6.1.2 Contact Position – Spherical Coordinates

The location of all detected contacts (C), including potential targets, is determined in a spherical coordinate system centered around the Battlestar (B).

Spherical Coordinates are defined by three values:

  • (A) Azimuth or Azimuthal Angle

    The signed angle on the reference plane measured from the azimuth reference direction to the orthogonal projection of the line segment BC on the reference plane. In the case of target-acquisition, this reference direction is equivalent to the Battlestar's length axis.

  • (I) Inclination or Polar Angle

    The angle between the Zenith Direction and the line segment (BC)

  • (R) Radial Distance

    The Euclidean distance from Battlestar (B) to Contact (C)

Additional information about any given contact includes:

Classification / Type of Vessel

Movement, Orientation, Velocity

Activity / Status


A typical hostile contact will typically be marked by the Fire Direction Center as follows:

FDC: "Priority Target: Cylon Basestar on 50°A / 20°I, Distance 2200, closing in, weapons ready."

The Raven's Claws

Let it be known that the Raven shall lay fire on all who dare threaten the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.
Ours is the blessing of Artemis, the Huntress. 
For the blooming fields of Aerilon, the Cities of Canceron and the silent ice of Aquaria
we stand between humanity and extinction.
