I am helping a dear friend of mine, writing a fanfic, crossover, and I need help with some backstory, along with the basic logistics of the mission in general.

The story can be found here:  (Please Review! WE NEED FEEDBACK) I.e. - this is the de facto Site of fanfiction on the Internet.

http://fanfiction.net/s/4352751/1/

The perticular chapter arc that I need help with is going to play out as such:

One jump before the jump to Alpha Halo, there is a contact on the Baseships sensors. As Cylons DO NOT use DRADIS ["Direction, RAnge, and DIStance"]. Anyways, after a very empty Battlestar Pegasus is comendeered, they set out to rescue the Heritics on Alpha Halo.

Once there, logistically, how long would a Cylon Baseship, with a compliment of 800+ Raiders (and nukes!) & the Murcuray-class Battlestar (with Cylon healing goo) be able to hold off Covenant forces near Installation 04?

Would they be able to hold out for at least a plausible 20 minutes?

Please give me your honest opinion.

And not just one sentence.

Well, considering that in Halo lore Covenant ships can most of the time kill UNSC ships in one single shot, or at least in a few ones, and that the armor of BSG universe ships seem to be somewhat similar to those of the UNSC, I would say as long as it takes the covenant to get in range of their plasma weapons.

Isn't the typical Halo vessel quite a bit smaller then a behemoth like the Pegasus or a Cylon basestar?

Wouldn't know exactly, but I think a halo supercarrier or cruiser may even be larger. A frigate or corvette on the other hand would be smaller, yes.
