The Day the Bombs Fell

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.

The Dilemma of Hippocrates

Dr. Arrius examined the Sickbay. “This is going to be a problem… this is going to be a major problem.” She continued to think about what they had to do to make this sickbay self-sustaining. She began to think. “We need a way to reuse everything here. Plastics, cloth, metals, everything is repurposed.” She said […]

Reporting and Drinking

Things had been insane for the past two days, and even that had been an understatement. Hit both unexpected and unprepared the Achilles had gone through hell to get here.  After giving the overview one more look Alethea walked into the CIC where she expected the XO to be. Upon seeing the man she approached […]

A Visit to the Doc

It had been a long fifteen days since Solaria and her fleet had left Ragnar and the Twelve Colonies behind to jump to the Prolmar Sector. In that time, the crew had been so busy very few had managed to get any downtime. One of them, the ships Commander, had noticed his shortness of breath […]

Lunchtime

Dr. Arrius had just picked up a plate of food for lunch when she brought it over to the tables and began to look for a table to sit dow. She then noticed a very familiar viper pilot and walked over while he was preoccupied with his own lunch and set her tray down in […]

Flowers for a Lady

It had been a busy day and he was bone tired but he had one more stop to make.  He stopped by one of the tech’s work stations.  After a bit of haggling, and a half a month’s pay he had a small bouquet of flowers to deliver.  He had a reason now to be […]

Time To Go

The airlock door to the CIC quickly cycled thanks to the Marine on station and Commander Hanson strolled into the CIC, looking more refreshed than he had previously. He felt energised again after his short rest, enough to lead the human race to safety. At least for the time being. He stepped around the Command […]

Resilience

OOC: Occurs before ‘The Medical Quintet’ To Dr Callahan’s eyes, the scan of Ayesha’s head appeared normal. There were no obvious areas of hemorrhage, the brain appeared symmetrical, the ventricles looked intact, and there were no displaced skull fractures. But then again, she was neither a radiologist nor a neurologist, and so to reassure herself […]

Roses Are Red

The medical center was currently quiet after the excitement of the past few hours. Ayesha was laying in a bed by the far wall. Her left arm was in a cast. And well hidden under the bland hospital gown were bruises and the rest. Ayesha was bored to put it mildly. She was not hearing […]

Follow Up

Jamie slipped a hand past the edge of the dark blue curtain, which was closed over the cubicle ahead. He gingerly knocked his fist against the wall, a request for permission to enter. It’d been a number of hours since he brought Lieutenant Myers to sickbay, and was wondering how well the pilot was doing. […]

Even more alone then before

Ranulf should have been sleeping but sleep would not come.  He was too wired with Adrenalin despite the long day he had just lived.  He was going through a series of kicks and hand strikes on the heavy bag just trying to burn off the excess energy.  His mind was in a swirl as images […]

It was between breaks in the patrols and it had been a while since Ranulf had left the CAG and Arrius once they began discussing things he did not really want to be privy too.  To think someone would betray humankind to the toasters and be willing to see millions murdered and entire planets laid […]

Achilles Personnel Change

Men and women alike parted like the seas of Aquaria as a cluster of Marines marched down the corridors of the Patrolstar Achilles, armed to the teeth and under strict orders from Solaria Actual to ensure the protection of the woman they surrounded. They had met their ‘objective’ on the hangar deck once she arrived […]

[CIC, SOLARIA] The lights in the CIC flickered as the ship emerged from her FTL jump and the crew, a little disoriented at first, began to come round. Among them, Commander Hanson gathered himself and then looked about the CIC before his gaze settled on the DRADIS console above the command table. “Report!” he called […]

The Medical Quintet: Let’s Get Down to Business

Nathan was weary. Today had made all the previous bad days he’d had seemed like child’s play. As soon as he was happy enough with the state of the Sickbay’s operational status, he’d relieved himself for a small respite, only a couple of hours, but stims were off the table for Nathan and he needed […]

They had jumped and for the moment they were again safe. Emergency jump co-ordinates had been relayed to the fleet as well as the second emergency jump after that. The Nav officers across the fleet were already falling into a familiar short hand. Engineering was taking point on stripping several of the ships that wouldn’t […]

Several of her escorts helped her with what she needed to show the commander. She then knocked on the door. Hanson was sat at the desk in his new quarters when he was interrupted by the […]

The First Casualty

Dr Ashley Callahan kept the distance between herself and the bed, of which Viper pilot Lieutenant Ayesha Myers now lay over, having been transferred across from the paramedic gurney. As the designated ‘team leader’ of the resuscitation, she aimed to delegate tasks to the medics and nurses, while not becoming too physically involved herself, in […]

“Baseships are opening fire!” Wolf declared in a panic as she looked about at the suddenly terrified faces of the people in the CIC. “Order the fleet to jump to emergency coordinates!” Hanson beckoned from his stationary position as he watched on the screen. “All batteries open fire. Clear a path for our Vipers. Combat […]

DRADIS Contact

There was now a sizeable fleet forming at the Nogura Fleet Depot, especially with Colonial Heavy 679, the Olympia and the Patrolstar Achilles in tow. Upon the return of all teams on the Depot, the Commander had dispatched the XO to the Achilles to take temporary command and ascertain the situation on the ship, leaving […]

Persephone entered the bay and approached one of the Viper Mk. 7’s. She pulled back the canopy and climbed into it, trying to power the Viper up; Nothing. “Well this is a frakking Caprican tragedy.” The doctor, who appeared to be like your average civilian then climbed out and began to open up panels and […]

A Weary Heart

Jamie had thought he’d gotten himself together, having forced himself to focus on the duties he’s been given by the CMO, and to not think of anything else. But it was during quieter times when his thoughts would come back, and all attempts to hide behind the strict military facade falls apart. “Excuse me. Sorry, […]

15 hours since the loss of the Twelve Colonies. Less than a day, but to Jamie it felt like it had been a long while since he was last on the Raptor, flying in the skies over Argentum. The sudden change in his life had been, and continues to be, difficult to accept. He was […]

Jamie was beyond exhausted. After having dropped off Crewman Lewis in Sickbay under the care of Dr Callahan, he had gone, as ordered, directly to the quartermaster to receive his new assignment and living arrangements on the Solaria. It appeared that he, SFC Matheson and SSgt Loza had been the last few Fleeters to trickle […]

Abandon All Hope I

Captain Nathan O’Hare, almost ironically, hated being in space; specifically aboard a Raptor. They were cramped and had no facilities that would stimulate him, or allow him to do his work. Usually, he consulted and assisted with the administration for the neurology department, located within the Argentum City Colonial Fleet Medical Center. Since finishing his […]

An Official Welcome

The ship’s main medical facility was larger than Jamie had expected, although he saw only its casualty receiving (CASREC) unit, and so it was his guess as to whether sickbay extended further with adjacent wards, an operating suite, and perhaps even a small intensive care unit. The CASREC appeared slightly spartan, yet equipped enough for […]

Sisters of Hadria

Sister Byrtus was sitting on the bed in the slightly cramped cabin of the Olympia. Across from her sat two younger women, eyes closed. The three were members of the Sisters of Hadria, a religious order. They had been aboard a transport ship, an old, transport ship that had failed. The distress call had been […]

The DRADIS console began alarming. SSgt Loza’s attention was immediately drawn towards it, as several blips appeared on its screen. Colonial signatures, just adjacent to the gas giant Hera, on the side of the asteroid field. Those blips were a welcome indication of hope amidst the despair. “Sir,” she reported to SFC Matheson. “I’ve got […]
