The Blackbird (also known as the Laura in honor of the Colonies’ President Roslin) is a custom-built stealth-capable fighter from the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series. According to executive producer David Eick it is not a Viper, though some parts for the craft were derived from scrapped Vipers.
The Blackbird is designed by Chief Galen Tyrol in the second season episode, “Flight of the Phoenix”. Despite being a capable engineer, the chief has no experience in building Vipers from scratch. The Blackbird’s engines are of a more primitive design than the rest of the fighters. In addition metal is at a premium and was needed for repairs on existing Vipers.
Shortly after neutralizing the Resurrection Ship, the Blackbird collides with a wrecked Raptor and is destroyed. Despite possessing additional materials to make a new Blackbird craft, no new Blackbirds were commissioned, and no explanation has been given for this.
