Colonial One, formerly Colonial Heavy 798, is an Eversun starliner now used as the seat of government for the President of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol. Colonial One is the civilian counterpart to the military leadership aboard the Battlestar Galactica.
Colonial One is small enough to fit inside of Galactica's flight pod This makes Galactica a "safe haven" and also reduces contact with outsiders who would otherwise have the chance to make a move on the important visitors that frequently come and go from Colonial One.
A large main cabin aboard the ship provides seating accommodation for dignitaries and press alike, while forward of this are small, more personal quarters reserved for ministers and their guests. Despite its conversion for government use, Colonial One retains its own docking bay, large enough to take a Colonial shuttle, and also boasts a cargo hold big enough to house a Viper-sized craft. Additionally, the ship boasts at least four cargo bays, three of which were converted to hold passengers.
Following the destruction of the Colonies, the ship's normal passenger capacity was reduced to accommodate the offices and cabins required by government personnel. Civilian passengers on Colonial One resided in converted sections of the liner. However, the configuration of passenger accommodations seems likely to have changed following the events of the Battle of New Caprica and the abandonment the human colony there. Colonial One appears to be carrying a larger complement of civilians, just as Galactica is carrying a larger crew of military personnel (from the destroyed Pegasus) mixed with civilians. For example, as Roslin negotiates with Tom Zarek over his future role in the presidential administration, two children are playing in a corner of the President's office. This overcrowding is presumably due to the loss of several ships before and during the evacuation of New Caprica, as well as the need to spread out the remaining population among the existing ships.
The Moebius Models kit is a detailed representation of Colonial One from the Battlestar Galactic miniseries. The kit features screen accurate details, stripping decals and optional landing gear.
