So would we dare design our own BSG Battlestars for oBSG and nBSG?

Can't say I've ever seen them shown to be so large. Though I also haven't ever look to measure them.

Well they got what they deserved then eh?
Mark wrote:Adama asks if any of the other ships could launch their Vipers, to which he receives a report that they didn't. Yet Rigel reports that out of the 67 Vipers returning to Galactica, 25 fighters belonged to Galactica. Obviously, the other battlestars launched some of their Vipers, but in few numbers and not in time. Additionally, there might have been patrols from other battlestars that were deployed at the time, but returned to the main fight.
So, according to this dialoge, Galactica was WAY undermanned.
The addition of two damaged squadrons from Pegasus COULD have brought that number up to about 150. I concede my arguement....but we still don't know what the STANDARD capacity of fighters are.

a Colonial Blaster would have a power output of approximately 315 kilowatts...Cylon Blaster Rifles were able to vaporize a similar mass as the Colonial hand gun, and probably had an output of roughly 1.5 megawatts.
Captain Seafort wrote:Exactly - so why would it be any different with a single Basestar against a single Battlestar, when the odds would be much more heavily in the Cylons favour?
The internal arrangement of the Eastern Alliance destroyer in "Greetings from Earth" means that it's wingspan can't be much less than 50 metres. When it leaves the Galactica's landing bay in Baltar's Escape, its wingspan can be seen to be about half the width of the bay. From there it's a simple matter to calculate that the Galactica is about a kilometre wide and two and a half kilometres long.
