During the Cylon War, Admiral Stryker wrote a list of rules that became known at the Stryker Doctrine
1: Even those the Cylon are machine never underestimate them or assume anything about their behavior.
2: Cylon will always have you outnumber, get over it…so must rely on better tactics and strategy.
3: Do not fight long battle with the Cylon…longer the battle more it favor the Cylon.
4: Battlestar should never be unescorted by anti-fighter warships leave them more vulnerable to attack by Cylon Raiders or enemy fighters.
5: Battlestar should range from light to heavy, never built only one type; Lighter Battlestar should be built in greater number with Heavier be fewer but used as command ships.
6: The Colonial Fleet should always maintain two hundred and forty Battlestar; any less will not allow a war to be fought both on the offense and defense sides.
7: Never fight a purely defense war, as the war will only in a defeat.
8: No computer’s network, all computer should operate independent from each others; network’s computer are too easy hack by the Cylon.
9: Strike Fast, Strike Hard, Strike Often.
10: Move Fast, Think Faster you will live longer that way.
11: War is a risk; if you are unwilling to take risk during the war then there is no point in fighting that war because you have already lost the war.
12: Never trust a Tolan
