The Battle of Ragnar Anchorage takes place during the mini-series. After the Destruction of the Battlestar Atlantia Commander Adama take command of the Fleet. He orders all Colonial vessels in range to converge on Ragnar Anchorage. It is Adamas intention to re-arm Galactica (Ragnar is a Munitions Depot) and take it into the fight. Instead of Colonial Battlestars and other military support ships, a fleet of 75 civilian ships shows up.
After a heated conversation with the New President of the Colonies The Commander decides not to take Galactica into a potentially suicidal fight with the Cylons. Instead he decides to use Galactica to protect the small fleet of 50,000 human survivors.
Its been one Year, The remnants of Humanity have settled on a Planet Called New Caprica, the Cylons have not see seen since they settled. In Orbit Galactica and Pegasus have a skeleton Crew and form the defense force of the planet (along with other fleet ships too big to land on the planet).
A Dradis Contact pops up to the horror of Dee Five Cylon Baseships have jumped in and are making their way to the Planet. The Fleet in Orbit Jumps Away, but not before Admiral Adama Vows to return.
Four Months Later a Resistance on the planet has formed and they have just made contact with an orbiting Raptor from Galactica. Help is coming, A plan is being put together to get the survivors off the planet. The plan, use raptors to launch a bunch of drones together to fool the Cylons into thinking Two Battlestars Just Jumped in. While the Raiders go to intercept Galactica would then jump into the Planets Atmosphere and launch Blue Squadron to help cover the Resistances escape. The Plan was to Jump out of the Atmosphere and engage the two Basestars whiles the grounded Colonial Ships jump away.
Intel said that there were to be only Two Basestars Guarding the Planet but instead another Two Show up, Galactica cant take four, The Basestars pound the ship taking out FTL and Maneuvering Thrusters. Luckily Pegasus Shows up and Takes on the Basestars while Galactica gets her FTLs back online.
On the planet the ships are starting to jump away still being covered by he Vipers, above the planet Lee orders and Evacuation of the Pegasus, the ship has sustained serious damage, he knew it was going to be a one way trip. The crew up out in Stand by raptors while Pegasus Slams into the nearest Basestar, the ship explodes sending its Port Flight pod into another basestar, destroying that one too.
The Rescue is a Success, most of the people on the planet have be saved, but not without loses, The Pegasus has been lost and its stated that at least 2000 people were left on the planet. Also the damage Galactica Sustained at this battle stays with it for the rest of its life.
