Demeter

Demeter

Basic Information

The Demeter was a military research vessel stationed near Sagittaron. It had a small crew of approximately 700, mostly science officers and operations staff.

Deployments

Commissioned twenty-two years after the end of the First Cylon War, the Demeter was a floating research facility dedicated to propulsion physics. Over the years many breakthroughs now used commonplace in Vipers and Raptors were developed on the Demeter. It was the home of the now-infamous Reactionless Drive project, a project which remained highly classified even after military funds were cut off.

Notable Events

* One of three research facilities responsible for improving Raptor FTL drives.
* Shut down after a propulsion "accident" destroyed three Vipers. The files on the incident have not been released.

Character Ties

* Ensign Nadiv Roubani: The Demeter was Roubani's first posting after flight school, serving under then-director Major Edward Lahasse.
