The Twelve Colonies, after a terrible war peace had finally been established and lasted for decades. Generations grew up in a world that had never known the horrors of mass destruction and unlimited warfare. Despite paradise seeming permanent, Fleet Command knew that there was always a chance that the demon would return some day.
The Battlestar Hypatia had been dispatched on a secret mission, jump to the edge of Cylon territory, deploy a specialized stealth Raptor and make sure the Cylons were keeping up their end of the bargain. Just as the raptor returned, numerous jumps were detected. Within seconds the Hypatia was surrounded by the enemy. Worst of all, through someone who had become a friend and confidante of many in the crew, the enemy was inside too. After a drawn out battle the Hypatia was left without a Commander, two hundred wounded and many more injured. Engaging in a last ditch effort to return home and warn the Fleet about the threat a blind jump was engaged just as the final nuclear warheads were about to destroy it once and for all. Now the Hypatia must ascertain the situation back home and proceed from there, the fight is not over.
Please welcome Colonel Aurore Graystone, commanding the Battlestar Hypatia!
