Default which battlestar do you think is better.

I just got bored and decided to see which battlestar people would like more and why. So what battlestar do you guys think is better then say why, if you want. So which battlestar do you think is better or cooler, Battlestar Pegasus or Battlestar Galatica?

It's already been stated that the Pegasus is superior to Galactica in every way, shape and form. Galactica is an old crotchety war veteran, and Pegasus is a fighting machine.

Default Pegasus? NO WAY!

Galactica: Made of substandard parts and cheap metal.
  • Fought off numerous base-ships and raiders for about 6 months before Pegasus showed up.
  • Destroyed the resurrection ship. w/ peggy
  • Took on 4 (i think) Basestars at the battle of new caprica after FALLING THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE and jumping out.
  • Was still functional after the battle of New caprica (Peggy not so much)
  • survived more battles after new caprica and flying through a radioactive star cluster.
  • RAMMED the Cylon Home Colony and jumped away, then FINALLY was beyond repair.
Pegasus: Best the fleet can offer.
  • Severely damaged during the fall. Barely escaped.
  • Lost jump drives fighting 3 Basestars-barely made it out.
  • Took severe damage against the Hybrid Basestar.
  • Was damaged beyond repair by the same Basestars that Galactica had already done damage to.
  • rammed a basestar (not the huge cylon colony) and exploded.
  • ACCIDENTALLY took out another basetar posthumously.
Edge: Galactica. The only explanaition is that the ship is alive--like a horse or something--and kicks more booty if the crew believe in her.

BUT---why didn't they just have Galactica RAM EVERYTHING? :P

Great thread. Hope that sets the record straight.

You forgot one very important aspect: Crew.

Let's face it, Galactica's crew was better than that of the Pegasus. Remember when Lee first flew aboard Galactica and he asked the Chief if their "auto-landing" system was down because he had to land "hands on?"

I loved the Chief's reply, "Its the Galactica, sir. EVERYTHING is hands on."

The same thing happened when Gaeta had to plot a jump without networked computers. He just pulled out the maps and did the math. Oh sure, I'm sure the Pegasus crew knew how to calculate jumps by hand, but why bother with all that felgercarb when the computer can do it faster with little effort?

Boom. The Cylons attack and Caprica Six' programs renders all their combat networks useless. Cain loses 700 of her crew. Adama lost a tenth of that number after "unarmed" Galactica was hit by a frakkin nuke and caught on fire (Once Galactica had ammo from Ragnar Station, she turned back a cylon strike attack all by herself).

Not bad for a 50-year old ship. Take that, Admiral Cain!

I voted for the Pegasus, she is a brand new Mercury-Class Battlestar. Galactica VS Pegasus = severely damaged Pegasus but galactica is kaput.

But in how they did it all, Galactica is better.

Default "Its the Galactica, sir. EVERYTHING is hands on."

Of course the Galactica

Pegasus escaped by pure luck, Galactica made it by the skills & the brains of her crew. Good old ship with better crew is always beating any high-tech vessel even so shiny and polished as a "mercury class". These are real hero storys

What is a big fighting machine without a brain to lead it properly I may ask ? ... Another salvage I collect in mine shiny Raider

Generally I tend to stick with Mavericks argumentation about the role of the crew.
