"ONE OF THE OLDEST IF NOT ALREADY THE OLDEST ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

"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."

The COLONIAL GUNSTAR TRIREME is Carrying on A Proud Tradition that was begun by our Ancestors Centuries Ago: A Fast, Mobile Ship with A Skilled Crew.

The First Ships, called 'Triremes' Were Built by Hand,Powered by Hand(as well as the Wind),And Manuvered by Hand; They were Manned by Men Who were Motivated to give EVERYTHING they had to Ensure their Homelands were Safe,Even Against Overwhelming Odds:

They took Their Ships Headlong into A Massive Enemy Fleet;and, With Ingenious and Creative Tactics, they inflicted Massive Casualties,and Turned the Tide Against their Numerically Superior foe to the Point of Forcing their Retreat.

Several Centuries Later.......

Today's Trireme is Technically Known as A CYGNUS CLASS MK. I (Mod.7) Gunstar/Escort.

This Design was Introduced During the FIRST CYLON WAR;Hundreds were Built; Their Main task was as Escorts to Battlestar Groups;Basically,Screening Vessels to Protect the Flagship from Incoming Enemy Fighters and Missiles; Many Proved Their Mettle,And Many were Lost In Battle; Another Task was to Patrol and Protect Colonial Borders From Invaders,Pirates,and Smugglers; Many A Pirate Thought twice About Engaging A Cygnus-Class Gunstar in their Area.

Today,The Design,Although Noted as 'Past It's Prime', Has Been Uprated,Modified,and Improved Upon;There are Cygnus Class offshoots that have been Enlarged and 'Super Stretched' To Perform More than their Designed Tasks with more Efficiency and Survivability; However,the Standard Cygnus Mk. I is still a Viable Escort and Gun Platform; It has Received numerous Upgrades to keep it in the Colonial Fleet:

These are the BASIC Specifications; Others are Added/Upgraded/Deleted as Situations Warrant.

In Overall View, The Task of the Trireme is Basically The Same: To Attack and Defend; With A Capable Crew,The Ship Can Carry out Whatever Task(s) It is Called Upon to do;To BE Capable,A Crew Must Know Their Ship,and What It can Do; That is the Job for All of us,so the Ship Can Remain A Vital Part of the Colonial Fleet.
