The multiplayer trailer is a bit choppy in places.

I think it'd be cool to do something that combines the best of the footage compiled so far, and illustrates all the potential of the final build. Flak storms, asteriod fields, Scar, hot landings... hell, did the launch tubes ever get completed? Set it all to a good BSG music piece and it ought to be a sure-fire winner.

should be a montage of sorts, with some clips of continuous play, but a bunch of short clips of pure awesomeness.

one thing ive found i can do is just fly down the launch tube and then turn around.  just hit your burners pointed out and it looks just like the show almost.
