A Qwaar-Jet Heavy Cruiser used in the Blood Gulch Starfleet

Formerly lead by Rodney McKay and now under the command of Commander Perkins.

It had been quickly pressed into service to deliver heavy firepower to the enemy's defences in the Second Battle of Chiron in order to allow several stranded Ion Frigates to pull back.

Post-Centauri

It was not mentioned again until later in DYOS XI where it arrived with the rest of the fleet at the Comet Observatory's new location. It was affected by The Hacker's Weaponised Carp attack and was cleared out, with some problems involving friendly fire, until time travel retconned that attack being effective and instead made it a curb-stomp battle in the Blood Gulch Mercenaries' favour.

Abilities

The Galactica is much like any other Heavy Cruiser, except that Rodney found a way to add energy shields to the prow. However, this requires the diverting of the power from the main ion cannons, leaving only point defenses available.

Behind the scenes

  • The name comes from the ship in the sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica because Stylesrj thought it looked somewhat like a Battlestar at the time he named it.
  • Although Homeworld only shows two ion cannons firing, it apparently has four arrays
