Author's notes:
There are less action in the first chapter as I'm covering a lot of background stories. From chapter 2 and beyond the writing in Italics indicates flashbacks. If you haven't read In Your Arms you may want to read that first as the character building and background were done in it, and I also have a few references to that story.

Selamat membaca, semoga enjoy :)

Seperti cerita gw yang sebelonnya, ini latar belakang tv seri Battlestar Galactica (klo mau baca dulu sebelon baca fanficnya):

The story arc of Battlestar Galactica is set in a distant star system, where a civilization of humans live on a series of planets known as the Twelve Colonies. In the past, the Colonies had been at war with a cybernetic race of their own creation, known as the Cylons. With the unwitting help of a human named Gaius Baltar, the Cylons launch a sudden sneak attack on the Colonies, laying waste to the planets and devastating their populations. Out of a population numbering in the billions, only approximately 50,000 humans survive, most of whom were aboard civilian ships that avoided destruction. Of all the Colonial Fleet, the eponymous Battlestar Galactica appears to be the only military capital ship that survived the attack. Under the leadership of Colonial Fleet officer Commander William "Bill" Adama (Olmos) and President Laura Roslin (McDonnell), the Galactica and its crew take up the task of leading the small fugitive fleet of survivors into space in search of a fabled refuge known as Earth. – source

Specific background that relates to this fanfic for those who haven't watched the series:

Galactica crew met with Battlestar Pegasus and joined forces. They found a habitable planet and decided to settle on the planet, called New Caprica. A year after, the Cylons found them and started the Occupation. During the Occupation Kara Thrace was captured and kept in a cell replicating her apartment on Caprica by Leoben Conoy (Cylon model #2), and forced to play happy family with him and Kacey, a little girl he claimed to be Kara's daughter from her ovary (taken while she was at the Farm). Bill Adama launched an attack to free the Colonials on New Caprica, leaving Lee in Command of the fleet onboard Battlestar Pegasus.

Main and supporting characters in this fanfic that I need to mention (warning: these are characters' descriptions from the series. Contains spoilers - I'll try not to reveal too much):

Commander Jack Fisk, who was Pegasus' XO took the job as Commander after her death, but he was killed when he was involved with the fleet's black market. Fisk was succeeded by his former engineer, Barry Garner, who became the Commander of Pegasus, but his rash judgement and lack of experience eventually led Pegasus to an ambush, and he died saving the ship. After Commander Garner's death, Admiral Bill Adama promoted his son, Lee Adama as Commander of Battlestar Pegasus.

Warning - just another warning for this story, this is for mature readers. Contains violence.

Berikut ini keterangan untuk chapter 2 :)

Julia Brynn: Kacey's biological mother, a survivor rescued from New Caprica.

Lifestation: medical facility on Battlestar Galactica.

I've decided that for the flashbacks the writing would be in Italics and different colour.
Notes on Chapter 2:

I thought I should explain a few things for those who haven't watched the series, so here it goes :) Contains spoilers!

Abortion became illegal on the Battlestar Galactica universe in the episode "The Captain's Hand", with the human race on the brink of extinction, they (as Laura Roslin said in the pilot episode) needed to start having babies.

As for the Cylons, they can't die as they'd "download" their consciousness into a new body - in the series, Kara "killed" Leoben many times over and he kept coming back in a new body. When Kara was captured and held at the Farm on Caprica, her ovary was taken, and when Leoben held Kara in prison on New Caprica, he brought in Kacey and told Kara that Kacey was her daughter. Eventually Kara believed it but then was heartbroken when Julia revealed that Kacey was indeed her biological daughter, taken by the Cylons.
Keterangan untuk chapter 3

Kat: Louanne Katraine (Kat) was a pilot aboard Galactica, one of Kara's nuggets. Galactica's CAG during the colonization and occupation period of New Caprica.

Hotdog: Brendan Costanza (Hotdog) was a viper pilot aboard Galactica, one of Kara's nuggets.

Seelix: Diana Seelix (Hardball) was a deckhand, and later became a viper pilot.

Knuckle draggers: slang for mechanics or deckhands

Makasih dah ikutin ceritanya :)

Buat chapter terakhir bagian terakhir, kalo blon nonton filmnya, here's an explanation (CONTAINS SPOILERS):

On the series the Final Five Cylons (well, it's 4 to be more accurate since Ellen Tigh was not in the fleet at the time) were hearing music which they believed to act as a "switch" that made them realize of their true nature as Cylons. Kara saw a pianist on Joe's Bar and started playing the tunes the Cylons had been hearing, it was something that she used to play with her father as a child.

Thank you again all :D All comments and feedback would be very much appreciated.
