Rising Star was a civilian passenger vessel which escaped the Fall of the Twelve Colonies.

Biography[edit | edit source]

At the start of the Cylon attack, Rising Star was in orbit over Picon, and assisted the Colonial Fleet in picking up stranded refugees rescued from the surface on Evac Raptors.[1] Among these survivors were Ellen Tigh and Galactica Cavil, with Tigh being treated in its sickbay with other refugees. Rising Star was aided by a Raptor crewed by Lt. Sharon "Boomer" Valerii, which sent jump coordinates to a refugee convoy let by President Laura Roslin. Not long after arrival, the fleet was discovered by a Raider patrol, and all FTL-capable ships - Rising Star included - jumped to the gas giant, Ragnar, to safety. Rising Star then left the Cyrannus system behind to follow the battlestar Galactica in its search for Earth.[2]

Design[edit | edit source]

Rising Star was designed with a streamline approach to enable atmospheric flight, with ground-side civilian spaceports being commonplace in the 20th century. As a passenger transport, Rising Star was not built for long-term flight, and required periodic assistance from Galactica, including water replenishment. Like much of the fleet, Rising Star lacked any defence capabilities, and was a likely target for Cylon Raiders.
