The Valkyrie-class Battlestar Scorpia has been away from the Twelve Colonies for two years on a scientific expedition. On its return to Colonial space, it finds itself Late to the Tragedy of the Fall of the Colonies. Her captain, Commander Mathias Lorne, decides to go out and search for survivors and resisters to the Cylon occupation, then cast off into deep space, where the Galactica is supposedly still in existence. Along the way, though, many things will be revealed, for there is more at stake and the history of the Cylons here is not exactly what you think you know.
