"Could have"? :lol: Even Apollo thought Starbuck was getting a bit carried away with that little stunt.

Now, 75 ships is a rather arbitrary number for a squadron, as a squadron can be 8, 12, 14 or more fighters. We just don't know unless some dialoge indicated what the strength of the squadrons were.


In Living Legend, Baltar stated that a Basestar carried four squadrons, and in Hand of God Tigh stated that they carried 300 fighters. You can't get much more explicit than that.


Idk, the fighters are pretty self explanatory....though the weapons themselves on the Battlestar Galactica are.....somewhat dubious. I mean I saw at least 36 laser batteries on the portside flight pod, just above the Viper launch tubes, and then another 36 below. That'd be 72. If you double it for the other side, that'd probably be 144 lasers on the flight pods alone. Idk if my calculations are correct. SOMEONE tell me I'm wrong right now. -_-

I guess there isn't any way you can provide a visual? Counting how many you saw?

Just saying.

Actually, I can actually provide SOME evidence, in the form of a link I saw that only confirmed SOME of it. If you want the link you'll have to message me so that I can send it to you.

Its ok. Put it here. You do not have to label it but screen shots work well.

Well let me take some time to find it again. I know it's on the BSG wiki hold on a minute. -_- *headdesk*

Okay, well take a look at this here then.

It will be the very first picture that you see, detailing the launch bay. :D

Hey while we're on the subject of Battlestars, does anyone know the FULL list of Battlestar names? I'm hoping to make a fanfic name for a battlestar (just for fun)

Better yet, anyone want to help make a name FOR this battlestar? :D
