Woooot! I love it. The CIC is sooo clean. No random swivel glass doors like on Pegasus (though the glass kept on breaking for dramatic effect). I assume the Valkyrie is from a class of battlestars between Galactica, 40 years ago, and the Pegasus, a semi-recent family of ships.

The Valkyrie looks quite slick. Especially the flight pods - classier, smoother, and more refined than Galactica AND Pegasus, in my opinion. Thanks so much for the pictures!

Very obvious throwbacks to TOS Galactica, namely in the head and landing pods; which, considering Galactica has been heavily retrofitted...makes sense even if it was built after Galactica.  I for one appreciate the references to the classic battlestars.

I really miss Zoic the inhouse cgi keeps slipping up IMHO they magically added guns to the top of the Pegasus pods, the exo II space battle wasn't up to Rez II or Cap Hand standards, they "refined" the baseship so that it looks like its half the size and half as menacing.   Now this...

This is the ugliest ship i think ive ever seen, not only is the hull homely but the greebling looks like theyve never seen the galactica or pegasus.  Even the TOS battlestars looked better then that, and saying that this thing is a throwback is an insult to them ;).  Thing looks like a bloated humbacked prehistoric salamander with an itty bitty pointy head and kazzoo engines borrowed off the Merc.  The weapons look like they ripped off the Death Star turbolazers from episode IV.  Since 75 and 62 have the same types of weapons you would think theyed be careful enough to stick with "canon" looking cannons.  Plus the hull plating looks lazy as hell, i mean i know its proly a one show ship but cmon give it a little effort its almost as bad ass those half assed DS9 kitbashes like the Yeager.  I was really really looking forward to the Valk and i really wanted to like her but man i think using another Mercury class woulda been better then that monstorcity

canon = true to a design concept
cannon = projectile weapon

It's obvious the Valkyrie was intended to look different. Given how different the Galactica is to the Pegasus, that such a third variation existed isn't a surprise to me.

Ya the Valkyrie is suppose to be probably like a smaller variant of a battestar. From the looks of it it is very small compared to Pegasus. The Pegasus is better in my opinion.....

The V doesn't look like it is really a fighting battlestar rather it looks like it is for scouting battlestar or recon battlestar. Who knows?

That shot at the top-right looks like the behind of an SF Mara!

The ship itself seemed to have been designed like a more self-sufficient fighter, for a potentially longer mission.

Re: the Valkyrie, compare the size of the flight pod to the size of the body and head of the ship. Now do the same for the Pegasus, and Galactica. Does that help with judging the size, assuming the flight pod runway is roughly constant size?

Fish, I checked out the link you put up in the 3x08 thread, and am quite impressed with the shots.  In one shot, you can see a long barrel of some kind under the head area.  Check S3_307_279.JPG on page 7 to see it.  There are a couple more at the top of page 8, but the rest of the Valkyrie shots are on pages 14 and 15, including a closeup of the missile port which fired on Bulldog.  Modders may wish to save these for reference until the DVDs come out.
