The Colonial Fleet

The Colonial Fleet is a direct descendant of the Cylon War, which forced humanity to set aside its petty prejudices to meet a common threat. Though its commander-in-chief is the President of the Colonies, the Fleet's day-to-day operations are managed from its headquarters on the Colony of Picon. The Fleet is divided into two branches, the Colonial Navy and the Colonial Marine Corps (CMC), which are complemented by a wide assortment of reserve units drawn from each of the Twelve Colonies. It also maintains a sprawling network of research stations, munitions depots, and anchorages throughout Colonial space.

The Twelve Colonies

The Twelve Colonies of Kobol are twelve distinct worlds located in Star System Cyrannus.

About 2,000 years prior to the Cylon Holocaust, the Twelve Tribes of Kobol left their home planet after conflicts with their gods led to some sort of calamity only hinted at in religious texts. Having settled in Cyrannus, the early Colonies lived (and fought) more or less as sovereign states. Some (like Caprica and Virgon) prospered; others (like Sagittaron and Aerilon) did not. Two millennia of inter-Colonial tensions and warfare finally came to an end forty-one years ago: after joining together to resist the Cylon rebellion, the various independent governments agreed to unify as a federal republic, formalizing the so-called Articles of Colonization signed during the middle of the war.

The vast majority of the Colonies' fifty billion inhabitants were killed by the Cylons on Warday.


Society and Culture

The Cylons

The Cylons were created by Man.
They were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies.
And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters.
After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared.
The Cylons left for another world to call their own.
A remote space station was built…
Where Cylon and human could meet and maintain diplomatic relations.
Every year, the Colonials send an officer…
The Cylons send no one.
No one has seen or heard from the Cylons in over forty years…
