Captain Hunt with the gameball

Basketball is a physical game invented by Humanity. It is a multi-player game, with a lower limit of 2 people for an active game. A ball is thrown and 'dribbled,' and the players attempt to throw the ball into the round hoop on the opposite side of the court.

It is a popular sport on the Systems Commonwealth vessel Andromeda Ascendant, as Captain Hunt brought the sport with him on board the ship when he assumed command. It is played in Andromeda Ascendant Hydroponic Garden, which is the crew's de facto recreational area. ("Home Fires", "D Minus Zero")

While Beka, Trance, and Harper rarely played with Dylan, the Nietzscheans in his crew such as Tyr Anasazi and Gaheris Rhade would frequently play with him. However, they often used ploys and violence to try and win the game, in keeping with their Nietzschean philosophy. ("Home Fires")
