Into the Belt
Reports have come in that the Battlestar Athena, under the command of Commander Vorn Krace, former teacher at the Colonial Fleet's War College, has been sent on patrol in the Origin Asteroid Belt....
The Origin Asteroid Belt was, in past years, mined for tylium, the valuable fuel that powers all our ships. Since the costs of the mining operation in the belt became too high, forcing Colonial Mining Corporations to pull out, there have been scattered reports of pirates in the area, possibly using the belt as an outpost of some kind. It is unknown if the Athena has come across any pirate operatives in the belt yet, but we have been assured by Fleet Command that any pirates found will be rooted out and face their crimes.

Current Omega Group Missions
One year after it's mission into the Origin Asteroid Belt, the Battlestar Athena has encountered some changes. It's commander has been promoted to Rear Admiral, and given command of a Task Force for the Top Secret fleet Omega Group - known only to the Admiral himself. Various crewmembers have left, while others have been promoted to more prestigious titles and positions. All that is about to be torn apart, however as the Cylon Holocaust begins...
Omega Group Ships
There are those that believe in 'free will' and there are others who believe in 'destiny'.
Our people forged the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, pushing back the darkness to build a future, a safe haven amongst the tractless gulfs of space. In our arrogance, we created the machines to serve us, but they tired of their chains and turned on their masters. In one night of blood and fire, the Cylons murdered millions and swore their undying hatred for humanity. The Twelve Colonies were united against them, and together they forced an Armistice and exiled the Cylons to the stars.
The Colonies thrived in peace and prosperity and the horrors of war became a distant memory. Beyond the Armistice Line, an old hatred stirred once more. A plan, forty years in the making was being put into action. Humanity's children were coming home.
At the edge of colonial space, a single Battlestar carries out its mission, unaware of the danger that will soon engulf them.
