Which is better?

Postby Meste17 » Wed Nov 27, 2013 1:10 am

I see 2 different versions of the famed warship. However, both seem to have different technologies, which raises the question in my head: "Which is better as far as tech goes? And which is more believable?"

Now this is NOT a vs debate, as it is an honest question of which Battlestar Galactica, old or new, do we like better? I say I like the old one better, it has lasers while the new one has something called, "Kinetic Energy Weapons," but are they really the same? -deep in thought-

I like the new one since it seems like a real living breathing warship. Maybe the most realistic ship we have ever seen in scifi.

Continual damage, diverse crew. Realistic accommodation.

The only other scifi ship that comes close is the ship in Star Gate Universe.

Good point. Makes you actually think that our tech could ACTUALLY be based off of that! :D ^_^

The 303/304?

I always found it interesting that Ancient and Gou'ald designs became so easy to understand that they can break codes or security within seconds.

I like the look of the original better. The smoother, more silver skin.

Ahh... different from the Galactica crew too. The Destiny crew was not meant to be there.
