Battlestar Libra

Flagship of Battlestar Group 26

The Libra is a Mercury-class battlestar and the flagship of Battlestar Group 26. Commanded by Benito Rodrigues, the Libra and the remaining elements of her battle group lead a fleet of refugee ships on a quest of survival in the fanfiction epic that carries her name.

The Libra is approximately 1,790 meters in length, with a crew capacity of 2,500. Her weaponry includes 30 twin-barrel KEW turrets, heavy bow-mounted cannons, conventional and nuclear ship-to-ship missiles, and planetary strike nuclear missiles. The Mercury-class battlestar can accommodate 50 Raptors and 200 Vipers, although the Libra does not have a full complement of these support craft.

Battlestar Taurus

Battlestar Taurus

The "Raging Bull", formerly of Battlestar Group 11

The Taurus is an historic battlestar from the First Cylon War. It had been mothballed in a hidden reserve fleet but was brought back into service by Admiral Thomas Jacobs and the Battlestar Intrepid fleet. The Taurus survived the destruction of the Intrepid fleet and led the remaining vessels to join the Battlestar Libra.

The Taurus is the same class as the Galactica although it has retained more of its original armor. While mothballed it had been used to warehouse a seemingly random array of materials and spare parts. The effort to return the warship to operational status is an ongoing project.
