The Cylons were created by Man.
They were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies.
And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters.
After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared.
The Cylons left for another world to call their own.
A remote space station was built...
...where Cylon and Human could meet and maintain diplomatic relations.
Every year, the Colonials send an officer.
The Cylons send no one.
No one has seen or heard from the Cylons in over forty years....

Until Now.

Two years ago the scientific vessel the Hephaestus, along with a handful of other vessels, left Caprica towards the Thetis galaxy. The mission was mundane: scientific, exploratory and archaeological. It was also only supposed to last for 18 months. When the Thetis expedition did not return on schedule, President Adar sent the Battlestar Astraea to retrieve them. After all, it was his favorite nephew Alexander that was on the Hephaestus crew and no expense was spared to bring him back home. A simple retrieval turned into something so much more when they returned home to discover that the Colonies were in ruins, the Human race nearly obliterated by the Cylons. Now the small fleet of ships is on the run from an enemy they don't understand and what the Thetis expedition discovered on their journey just might provide the key to humanity's survival.

Battlestar Astraea is a play by email rpg set in the universe of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. Our timeline starts at the beginning of season one. Our ship is a Mercury class Battlestar, but how can one Battlestar and a handful of civilian ships prevail against an enemy that obliterated the twelve colonies without even blinking? Is this the beginning of the end? Or the beginning of something else?

If you're looking for a sim that's a little bit different, one with plenty of intrigue and character development, then this is the place for you!

We hope you will join us.
