During the Cylon War, when only the twelve Columbia class battlestars and four previous experimental battlestars were in service, the administration of President Alexander J. Dallas authorized the emergency conversion of twelve Valen Class Light Cruisers into Battlestars. These twelve ships would become known as the Delphi Class of Light Battlestars. Eight of these battlestars, Glorious, Samar, Gladiator, Etain, Coronis, Altair, Rhodes, and Queenstown were lost in action during the Cylon War. Three of the four remaining ships, Nereus, Mycenae, and Rodney served for a period of time after the war but were ultimately decommissioned and scrapped. The only ship to have survived both the war and the cutter's torch was the Battlestar Delphi. For some time the Delphi served as a front line battlestar until time and technology passed the Cylon War veteran by. The time came finally to decommission the veteran battlestar. Since that time the Delphi has been berthed at the Hargrove Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility located in orbit around the colony of Scorpia. The Colonial Fleet Bureau of Ships recently offered the Delphi for sale to be scrapped. A preservation group from the colony of Tauron put in a bid to save the Delphi for a museum ship and memorial to those lost during the Cylon War.
