The Engagement on the Armistice Line, or more commonly known as "The First Toaster Brawl" by the Colonial Fleet, was the first engagement between the Cylons and the Colonials during the 2nd Cylon War. It was notable for being the first battle in which the Cylons were massively defeated. It was also the first use of Heavy Raiders as a boarding ship by the Cylons, and would be the starting point for a series of conflicts between Battlestar Group 11 and the Cylons.

The battle began after Battlestar Group 11, on a recon mission, was ambushed by two Cylon Basestars. Thinking that they could hack into CNP using the backdoors provided by Caprica-Six, the virus was somehow diverted just seconds before it paralysed the Group, thanks to the technical crew onboard the Phoenix. The two Basestars then proceeded to open fire. A Nuclear Raider guaranteed the destruction of Gunstar Sentinel while Firestar Snake and Strikestar Rebel also fell to superior Raider numbers. However, a pair of nukes finished off one Basestar and the other went down shortly after, along with the Mini Basestars and almost all of the Cylon Fighter craft present.
