The history of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol stretches back nearly 4,000 years before the destruction of the Colonies, with much of its ancient history being shrouded in mystery and religious lore. In this archive you will find out about the lives of those who survived the holocaust from a time when peace and prosperity reigned.
The arrogance of the Colonials in re-equipping their military with technologies vulnerable to Cylon interference proved to be their undoing. Forty years after the first Cylon War, Cylon infiltrators subverted Dr. Gaius Baltar's Command Navigation Program, allowing an advanced Cylon armada to destroy the Colonial fleet with impunity. The attack resulted in the nuclear bombardment and occupation of the Colonies and the enslavement of most of the few isolated survivors in a series of Farms. Altogether, less than one hundred ships (mostly civilian) survived the attack. These are the stories of our crew on the day of the Cylon Holocaust.
