In the original Battlestar Galactica, the Galactica came across the Battlestar Pegasus, which had been sent away to fight at Gamoray before the great Cylon attack. The Pegasus was under the command of Commander Cain. After a pitched battle with three basestars under the command of Baltar, it was never confirmed if the Pegasus was destroyed or not. Adama simply says that if Cain survived, he would maintain radio silence to protect the fleet. The story was presented in a two-part episode, "The Living Legend".
