A faux-cover for the story Battlestar Hermes: Faststar

Battlestar Hermes: Faststar
is the title of the follow up story to Battlestar Hermes: Salvage. Work on the story began as soon as Battlestar Hermes: Salvage was completed and like it's predecessor is published on


The story will begin a few days after where Battlestar Hermes: Salvage left off. The basis of the story will revolve around the discovery of a surviving Colonial Faststar operated by the Ministry of Intelligence (MoI) and will see the return of Galit Malka and Keene Barron from Ride of the Valkyrie. Galit Malka reveals to the crew of the Hermes the location of a secret base with enough weapons to "fight a war" but Bowman suspects there is more to this base than what she is telling them.

Character DevelopmentEdit

Personal storylines will include;

1. Chloe Burmeister coming to terms with her 'condition'.

2. Commander Bowman and Colonel Dytto establishing the parameters of their new relationship.

3. Unlike Battlestar Hermes: Salvage greater emphasis will be placed on what is going on in 'The Slum' and will include the discovery of three members of the Basileus Crime Syndicate terrorizing civilians with the help of two corrupt Marine guards.

4. Bowman's guilt over his feelings for Galit Malka. The history of his relationship with his wife, Brooke Bowman, will be told in a series of flashbacks.

Plot OutlineEdit

Act I Edit


For five days the Cylons have pursued Hermes

It has been five days since the operation to gather supplies from Scorpia. Since then the Battlestar Hermes has been under daily attack. Each time they are attacked the Hermes jumps away however on day five the malfunctioning FTL, a result of the 'FTL hiccup' the crew used during the fight above Scorpia, forces them to fight. During the battle a man is murdered in 'The Slum' by thugs. Following the battle Bowman concocts a plan to determine whether the Hermes is somehow being tracked by the Cylons or if an agent has penetrated the ship.
