Thanks for the explanation! It makes perfect sense when you put it in those terms.

Battlestar Galactica, January 7025 post refit and replacement of bulkhead seals.

She has a new weapons suite with added K.E.W's and point defence weapons, nuclear warheads and extra thick hull plating. Her air wing consists of 360 vipers, 200 of which came from the old Pegasus (14 squadrons in total) - and yet, over 500 years old and in need of eventual replacement!

Galactica got really big boned.

What? She's a grand old lady and I have no intention of saying she's overweight

If you insist on following 'canon' then yes she is, but I never have, in my head she was always this size. If you think she's big wait till you see the new Pegasus!

How big is your version of the Grand Old Lady in comparison with the canon version?

Depends which 'canon' version you mean, and that is exactly the point! there is the Original series Galactica - then the nu bsg version - then add to that all the various fan versions - I did include a size chart in the corner. Incidentally this is based on Allen Knott's Galatea, thanks to him for allowing us all to use his commissions - hope this explains, if not I'm going to hide lol!

Having finally secured the manpower, funds and permission to commence construction on a second new 'Super Battlestar' - a sister ship to the new Pegasus, together with two new Battlecruisers, attention turned to the problem of mapping out and colonizing of the planet Terra. Much more advanced and powerful shuttles, dropships and troop transport craft were designed and constructed, capable of outgunning and out running a Cylon raider.

Unprecedented for such large craft, the engines were completely redesigned and an extra high engine added to bolster power together with new vertical/horizontal thrusters for more efficient V.T.O.L.

These craft had the ability to perform in areas of greater gravity and force, and therefore capable of carrying much greater payloads, and were designed for more prolonged missions than previously performed to provide greater range, flexibility and endurance than ever before......

This is the Combi Dropship capable of carrying a platoon of marines together with tanks and artillery (note the high chassis on the vehicle inside the cargo hold for extra equipment for longer missions)

Image

This is a Module Dropship, capable of carrying various kinds of equipment and supplies to the field, it can also be used to deploy a mobile field operations module or medevac unit

Image

Here she is deploying her payload

Image

This is the Troop Transporter

Image

....And finally the Super Shuttle,

Thanks Kurt, working on a couple more drawings at the moment so taking a pause from the fanfic as these are relevant the next episode.

As mentioned in my fanfic "Pilgrimage to Earth Episode 12 - For those we left behind"

The Cylon Deathfall Base Star....

"commander Jolly knew he had to get as much intel as possible, but what he saw was no ordinary base ship, this one looked different, still the usual twin saucers with a central core, but more, three large arms spreading out from the saucers, it was obviously a more advanced base star than the ones they encountered during the first Cylon war and the armistice, the Cylons had clearly not been idle in the absence of the colonies, this was the most advanced base ship ever built!"
