...Valkyrie uglier than TOS Galactica?  no way...that thing was king of Cheese.  thought I readily admit that the V is no Beast or Bucket.


She is def uglier then ye old Colombia class, given the right attention i bet i could "TNS" the TOS galactica so that it would A) comfortably fit into TNS and B) make the Valk look pants(note A is considerably harder to do then B since Valk already is pants)

I have a gap in my knowledge...what is the 'Columbia class'?  is that the current Galactica?

Old TOS Galactica iirc.

Valkyrie 'is one ugly baby', to paraphrase Laird... that squashed head look terrible.
I could do 10 years of this easily. I think this is some of the finest usages of television I\'ve ever been a part of in my life bar none. I\'ve been doing this for 42 years. I\'ve done some really good work on television and in motion pictures, but there\'s nothing like this show. I can honestly tell you that. By far, one of the finest dramatic pieces of work on humanity I\'ve ever seen in my life."

I think {BSG is} so passionate, textured, complex, subversive and challenging that it dwarfs everything on TV.

It is definitely much smaller than a "regular" Battlestar. It looks as modern as the Mercury, only smaller - obviously intended for different missions. Also, in the show, Adama's transfer to the Galactica is considered a demotion, even though it is a larger class, so the Valkyrie is definitely state of the art, if smaller.

I didn't hate it, they don't really have to be beautiful, especially since it's not like it's gonna be around forever.

The TOS Galactica was the orphan bastard child of a thousand battleship model kits that were in the wrong place at the wrong time. You can't make something look like pants compared to it, it is the very definition of pants.

She looks pretty good in this shot that was posted on SFM a while back, with a some regreebling work and some minor modifications the design could be made TNS and certainly better then the Suckstar Valkyrie.

Well when you 3Dify it so you can play with the textures of course it looks decent. The original one was off-white and no specular.

The actual TOS Galactica model is still out there somewhere, IIRC.

I don't believe we can judge her size, saying she's a smaller battlestar.  A Battlestar is a Battlestar in my opinion.  Each has something different to offer.

However, she does look like the broken up Battlestar we see in orbit around Caprica during the Mini-Series.

Thaw was the galactica model cut in half. On the DVD it is clearly visible... gloriously visible.

How the hell could a Battlestar be cut in half like that. Its too clean. Almost as if it was cut in half with a knife.

SUPER TURBO LASER! um... no? ok well then... that is sort of weird, but remember it was a background shot deal... if you wanna get technical, maybe that area took a lot of damage, and the structures just broke and buckled, causing it to break... i act like i know what im talking about :-)

Looks like it was snapped like a Kit Kat bar

Keel snaps, the rest of the ship isn't designed to support the stress...get one good hull flexing and it'll break along the keel break

Looks like when the nuke went off inside, it blew up the reactor and that created a shock wave that sliced it in twain.
