More a commuter shuttle than a deep space craft, Colonial I is dwarfed by many of the larger ships in the fleet. Despite its size, it is the political center of the fleet, and the capitol of the new human society emerging among the survivors of the Cylon Massacre. It is the home of President Laura Roslin and her government, which is housed in the converted upper decks of the ship. It is a prime target for the Cylons, and heavy fuel requirements and a tempermental jumpo drive render it particularly vulnerable.
