The "Battlestar" Osiris from Blood & Chrome. Scale is about a half meter per pixel instead of a full meter since she's quite small. Many details are estimates/guesswork since many scenes are quite dark and hard to make out any detail. I didn't try to recreate the chrome paint scheme. I couldn't find a method that looked right.

Thats no Battlestar, thats a spy-ship.
I mean, look at it, almost no Vipers and lots and lots of sensors.....

Probably set to patrol the Cylon border or so.

I wouldn't call her a Battlestar either, but her crew patches said "Battlestar Osiris".

Possibly it was an early Battlestar design, before the flight pod design became so common. The Cylon War had been running for over ten years at this point. I bet that every old hulk was pulled out of the bone yards and put into service.

I think she's a dedicated scout/infiltrator.

I agree as well. We seen larger "Battlestars" of the Galactica & Valkyrie type when we first say the Ghost Fleet. I also agree that his was an old design that has been shifted to new duties now that the "Big Boys" have come into service.

Great drawing as usual Boss. :thumbsup

If those doors under the name are about Raptor sized, then the Osiris is probably about 350-450 meters (I think Canis said a half meter per pixel). Also, it has been stated that its crew complement is 150 minus the viper pilots. Even then, I still think the overall crew would be about 200 or there about.

Excellent work, Canis. Where are the nuclear missile tubes on this boat?
