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.
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.

- Although Homeworld only shows two ion cannons firing, it apparently has four arrays
