Story Missions are missions that briefly tell the story of the games main setting and are used as a form of tutorials to teach players about the game and how to play. The missions are available from the beginning of the game after completing or skipping the initial two Tutorial Missions. Should a mission be abandoned or failed, it can be attempted again but further missions can not be attempted until the current available mission is completed.
Missions can be activated by talking to Admiral Adama aboard the Galactica.
Missions can be activated by talking to Number One 'Cavil' aboard the Main Basestar.
