Battlestar Sword, was a new Atlas class Battlestar that suffered a massive explosion to its computer core six months before the attack. This explosion crippled the ship and due to the cost cutting measures of the Adar administration it was decided instead of repairing the new ship, it would be better to have her scrapped. She was offered up for sale and her hull was bought by Valcin Industries to be scrapped. Unknown to anyone in the fleet, Valcin Industries run by Victor Warrington had plans to rebuild and use her for the corporation space fleet. Days before the attack, she left the colonies to head for the secret facility with a dozen ships. The family of the crew was allowed to go with them and they will be returned by Victor Warrington on one of their long contracted liners called Picon’s Light.
When news of the attack comes, Commander Wallington takes the inactive and starts a full fledge rescue of ships and civilians from the devastation while his father jumps the two of the three stations to a new location after the Cylons attack their positions. Refinery two is set to self destruct if any ship other than a colonial fleet or civilian unit.
During the rescues they also gather up older fleet units and several damaged Battlestars are put into his father’s repair ships. The Battlestar Goliath, and the Battlestar Nebula are recovered. Goliath was to be destroyed during a special weapons test, and recovered. Nebula lost her bow to several nuclear missiles and is being rebuilt while parts of the Battlestar Thor which had been recovered are being rebuilt in another dock.
