Battlestar Constellation

Basic Information

The Constellation was a Mercury-Class Battlestar commissioned eight years after the end of the First Cylon War. It had a crew compliment of approximately 3,100 and carried the standard three squadrons of Vipers and one single Raptor squadron. One of these squadrons was the Jolly Rogers (VFA-103). The CAG was known as a young and hard-nosed type who tolerated very low amounts of bullshit in his group. He drove his pilots hard both personally and professionally.
