:eek:
Has anyone else noticed how she's eerily similar to Orky BFG ships?

No. And to be honest, after looking at the images, I still do not.

Really?

Large carapace-like head, complete with mouth, eyes, and even pupils, blunted nose, long outboard weapons arrays at the base of the torso... the orky battleships even have similar engines.

Oh well.

I still can't see any similarities...

I see you, brother!

Orks seem quite fitting for the Battlestars, given the general poor quality of the Colonial Fleet! To represent the Adama's and associated Cast just give it a bucketload of Crew Skills...

Batter-star Orktica!

I dissagree!

i sort-of see some kinds of similarities, but for the most part, no, not really.

it doesn't quite fit, IMO.

I see it loud and clear... And it seems Lee Adama pilots like an Ork, too!

I see some, but more along the lines that the BFG is similiar to the 70's version of BSG (in essense) not that the 06 version of BSG is similar to the Ork ship.

But that's my impresion, your mileage may vary.

It does a BIT, save the Prk one isn't as long.

And with a bit of jiggery pokery:

that's closer, but the whole tail fin assembly really destroys the image.

It has similarities but its way too refined to be orkish

I mean for starters its fairly smooth.
Secondly its fairly round aswell

some similairities but not enough IMO.

I've always said Battlestar Galactica needs more Orkses.

It looks sort of like Battlestar Pegasus does. But it looks very little like Galactica itself. And the fin really does ruin the whole thing.

Turns out it's more like a Ramship.

few similiarities but in general i plain disagree.

It's general shape, kinda resembles the Pegasus...but on the whole I don't think it resembles it that much...

I've always said Battlestar Galactica needs more Orkses.

It would a lot more interesting show if it had Orks.

President Roslyn: "Warlord Adama, this behaviour is unacceptable. It's against the democratic principles we as Americans...I mean Colonials...believe in and fight for."

"Shuddup! Yer givin' me a headache with yer pointless wafflin" said the Warlord as he cleaved President Roslyn's head off with his massive and blood encrusted choppa.

And then with a smile:
"Now to go n kick some Tin 'Ead butt."

Oh and the Pegasus does look a bit like an Ork ship.

In looks Orks are pretty similar at least in the Prow to the Battlestars but as far as loadout goes Im of the mind that the Tau are closer. Lots of launch bays that can spit out many squadrons at a time out the sides of the ships, and are decidedly nastiest when you're caught in their prow arc. Think of the Pegasus being like a Hero class- good launch capacity and enough guns in the forward arc to make any cylon ship think twice.

In a related topic my thoughts from Lee Adama using the Pegasus like an ork warlord would when I first saw it: "So now we get to see how a Battlestar dies..." Minutes pass "Oh wow... How they die!"

I liked the death scene of the Pegasus. Personally I'd have handled it differently but hey I'm not a high paid Hollywood writer. :)

I've found a replica of the galactica that's about the size of an imperial cruiser.
I'm using it as an improvised tau capital ship for my "counts as" colonial fleet.

Pic pls! Also where did you get this BSG replica?

i do not really see a strong similarity. The Galactica looks like a lot of things.

But i am going to name a ship in my BFG fleet "Da Battlestar Galorktica."

I see it. And I've thought the same thing for some time. Although I dont think it looks so much like a Kill Krooza as a Savage Gunship. The Savage has the same sort of head on the front.

Yay! BFG Orkses!
