The Battlestar is the largest ship built by the Colonies to combat the ever-growing and expanding menace of the Cylons. Due to the very real and present danger of hacking from the Cylon forces, the ships were downgraded to simple computers, instead of the ultra-fast semi AI of the past.

Length 1414 Meters, width 555 meters, height 177 meters. The flight pods are 615 meters long x 110 meters wide x 210 feet (64 meters) tall.

The Battlestar is loaded with a full complement of 4 squadrons (48) of vipers, and up to 12 raptors. The hanger bays can hold larger ships, but typically are used only in this capacity for emergencies.

Finally, the Battlestar is also equipped with a powerful point-defense system, consisting of 514 individual Point Defense turrets.
