"To all personnel of the Colonial Fleet and Colonial Marine Corps, this Major Gray, acting Tactical Officer. Today marks the four hundred and ninety-second day since the Cylons attacked our homes. We have lost much, but we have endured. We have regrouped and rebuilt. And we have struck back, liberating our first planet from the enemy. A long and difficult road lies ahead; a road that will test us all in unexpected ways. But it is the road we must travel — the path that leads to freedom for all human kind.

Our victories — the liberation of Picon and our successful resistance on Aerilon and the other colonies — have forced the Cylons to change strategy. No longer confident in their ability to defeat us, the enemy has instead thrown the brainwashed children of the "Allied Planetary Forces" against us. Make no mistake — this is a desperate effort to weaken our resolve. We must remain steadfast. The only way we can truly save these misguided souls is to defeat the Cylons that control them.

We have also discovered unexpected allies: those we call skinjobs. We assumed they were a new creation of the Cylons, but we have now confirmed that this is not true. They are in fact a much older race, related to the humans who once lived on Piraeus. Like our own people brainwashed into serving the APF, the skinjobs were corrupted and controlled by the Cylons. A few of them learned the truth before the war, and have been fighting alongside us since day one. Now this truth is propagating through their ranks, and many more are joining the fight on our side. This process will take time, and no doubt there will be difficulties. But for the sake of all humanity, we must put past enmity aside and work together to defeat our common foe — the Cylons.

And finally, I'm sure you’ve all heard rumors about our next step, so let me put them to rest: We are going on the offensive. Information will be released when the time is right, but I can tell you that we are going to hit the Cylons where it hurts, and we are going to hit them hard. I don’t have to tell you what we’ll be up against – it’s probably going to be rough. But every single one of you has proven you can take it. Believe in yourselves, believe in each other, and believe in our final victory.

We /will/ prevail. So say we all."
