The Victorious-type Battlestar is a type of Colonial warship that appeared within two Dimensions: D5 and D8.
Victorious Class - D5Edit
Victorious Class - D8Edit
What became known as the Victorious Class Battlestar, also known as the Victorious Class Experimental Battlestar, was started as an improved version of the Triton Class Battleship. The Triton Class Battleship were originally designed by Marshall Margaritell. He made reference to the six hulls as the Illustrious Class Battleships. However, officially the hulls were listed as NCC-001 to NCC-006 and classified as Triton Class Battleships. When the Cylon War broke out, the six hulls were selected to be converted into the first Battlestars. Upon transferred to the newly created Colonial Fleet, the six hulls was named: Victorious, NCC-001; Leonidas, NCC-002; Aristoclea, NCC-003; Pythia, NCC-004; Dodona, NCC-005; and Themistoclea, NCC-006.
Already under construction by the time of the Cylon Revolt, it was reported that six super tankers were being converting into the first six Battlestars. However, this was a bit of misinformation by the Fleet Admiral Jonas Ingram Stryker, and it worked, as the Cylons were unable to located the six Victorious Class till they were completed into Battlestars.
The Victorious Class carries 120 Starhound Class Viper Mark I and 20 Raptors along with a crew of 5,000.
The Victorious Class was originally designed to be crewed by Centurion Model 005, as the Centurion took over more of a military role from humans. Ironical in that the Victorious Class would lead the fight against the Cylons.
