To the diehards, many of us knew the answer already for most spacecraft but it’s debatable with Star Wars‘ physics. Regardless, with fiction, everything moves at the speed of plot. The distance the Galactica jumps is incorrect because the book The Science of Battlestar Galactica stated the “red line” is about five light years.

I guess the author(s) didn’t want to investigate some other well-known franchises: the Whitestar from Babylon 5Maia from FarscapeDiscovery from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Red Dwarf, the Sulacco or Nostromo from the Alien movies or the Yamato from Star Blazers.
