As a side note, the board game Battlestar Galactica is pure fun in a box. Its one of the few board games worth playing that can be found at places like Borders (and can be quite cheap if a 40% off coupon is used).

What's the game like? Arcade?

Not at all. More of a sim/mmo. Your ship has limitations, depending on which class you're running, which you skill up, as per most MMO's.

Right now, with limited beta content it's a bit of a grind for resources and repetitious but it is a beta afterall.
Ah thanks.

I've been playing in the closed beta for a couple months. The space scenes and environment are very well done. Sounds of the ships and special effects are spot-on to the TV series.

PVP is huge in this game. Organizing squadrons to fight over resources or sectors are going on all the time. Epic space battles between cylon and colonials look like something you'd watch right from the tv show.

Don't sell the game short. It's a lot of fun even in its beta state, with a ton of content to come so we've been told.

Seriously god dammit, why can't we get any good space sims? (Yes, I'm familiar with what's available, but it's nothing like the sort of attention my favorite genre used to get). With all the graphics power we have today, they could make one that was damn near perfect... what we all dreamed computer games would be like in the future when we were kids.

Hasn't Derek Smart made this game?

Anyone know what the actual space combat is like? Is it X-Wing style, or more clicky-clicky Eve style? Looks pretty clicky to me, but that's just an impression. It would be nice if their site would give you some information without requiring registration. I dunno, might be worth checking out. For a browser game, the graphics look reasonable enough. Maybe something to play on the laptop when I'm killing time away from home.

It doesn't look that bad. Yeah, the character models and such are pants, but the space parts look pretty good, and they're definitely epic in scale.

If it's F2P, I'll likely check this out.
