What galaxy are the Twelve Colonies in? I'm not sure if this is in the right subject or not.

You think they diddled with some sort of NASA?... even during a long sustained war with the Cylons prior to the fall? Maybe, during the time of Caprica they did so it was all old info... I could see that.

Before the war, I'd bet each colony had a separate space fleet; only becoming a more or less unified one during the war (the better to pool resources). And I imagine that during the war, the colonial space telescopes (assuming the colonials had them; as I'm sure they must've) were probably rededicated as long-range enemy observation posts, just as luxury liners were converted (temporarily) into hospital ships during the first and second world wars. Don't you think?

The secure FTL jump distance is about 12 light years. In "33" they did about 250 jumps, so alone in this episode they jumped about 3,000 ly.

I think the colonies are in our galaxy, but about 6,000 ly away or so. Not too far away, but very.

And 6,000 would be a good number. :cylon-pancarte03:
