This issue takes place on the day of the Cylon attack on the Colonies seen in "Humanity's Children".


Didja Know?


Battlestar Galactica: Ghosts is a 4-issue mini-series published by Dynamite Entertainment.


The issues of this mini-series were not individually titled. I have chosen to apply the title "Orion's Pride" to this issue after the name of the smuggling ship that escapes the holocaust here.
