Rising Star is a medical transport and is the location of the first birth of a Colonial since the Fall of the Twelve Colonies (TRS: "33").

Ellen Tigh is placed aboard a MEDEVAC Raptor hailing from the vessel by a copy of the Humanoid Cylon known as John Cavil shortly before it departs from Picon during the Fall (TRS: "No Exit", "The Plan"). She slips in and out of consciousness aboard the ship for three weeks and is attended to (and cryptically mocked by) Cavil before William Adama locates her (TRS: "Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down"). She later procures a day-long stay there for her husband and herself, where she apparently meant for him to meet with agents of Tom Zarek (TRS: "Colonial Day").

'Galacticas chief medical officer, Dr. Sherman Cottle, is aboard the Rising Star at the time of the attempted assassination of Commander William Adama (TRS: "Scattered").

The ship's name is notably absent on the voting tally board on Galactica and the voting tally whiteboard on Colonial One (TRS: "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II").

Rising Star survives the exodus from New Caprica, passage through the star cluster to the algae planet and the Battle of the Ionian Nebula before it would be flown into Sol after the discovery of Earth (TRS: "Exodus, Part II", "The Passage", "He That Believeth in Me", "Daybreak, Part II").
