Welcome to Battlestar Wiki!

Welcome to the Wiki, Jb2680. Tell us about yourself on your user page. We have a template that lets you put some information about yourself in a nice-looking box.

Battlestar Wiki is an encyclopedia on officially-licensed stories, aired episodes, and other products of the Battlestar universes. Make sure that your contributions fit Battlestar Wiki's purpose, avoiding what we aren't.

Our editing standards and conventions policies may differ from other wikis, especially in verb tense and voice, capitalization and the like. Please read this policy. We have an editing tutorial and wiki markup codes to help you.

Our policies on original research differ from places such as Wikipedia. We allow some research based on aired episode content, but don't allow speculation that isn't supported from episode events. Battlestar Wiki does not allow fan fiction articles.

Battlestar Wiki's many projects help improve our content. Are you an Original Series fan? Help out in the Original Series Article Project. Non-English versions of Battlestar Wiki also need contributors, and helpers for our podcast transcriptions are also welcome. New projects should be brought to our Think Tank, where we hash out large-scale ideas before implementing them.

Any questions about an article can be entered on the article's talk page. General questions about the wiki can be brought to the Quorum or the administrators' noticeboard. Please sign your posts on any talk page by simply entering four tildes (~~~~), which will be automatically replaced with your name and a time stamp.

Remember that talk pages are for questions about the article connected to that talk page, and aren't for long discussions about the show. To chat as much as you'd like about the show (or other topics), why not set up a free account on the Battlestar Forum bulletin board?

We look forward to your contributions to the Battlestar Wiki community! --Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 17:46, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

Regarding an edit to "Resurrection Ship, Part I"

Hi! I like the edits you've made to the "Resurrection Ship" guide pages, but I did have a question. Is there a particular reason why you had removed the following question from the guide page on "Resurrection Ship, Part I"?

Where did they get a little tactical model of the Resurrection Ship to be used in the mission planning session? For that matter, where do any of these models come from?

Looking forward to hear from you! -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 17:51, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

It's a valid question, but for my part the answer is rapid prototyping. --Serenity 04:51, 19 August 2007 (CDT)
True. Once they had pictures of the Resurrection Ship (pics that Cain appears to have acquired weeks, maybe months prior to "Pegasus", as they were following the Cylon fleet in question), making a model shouldn't be too hard. The same goes for the Raiders and baseships, really. We don't see Raider models until "The Hand of God", which takes place approximately 2 months after the events of the Miniseries. All in all, plenty of time to hand-craft them if it were necessary. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 05:39, 19 August 2007 (CDT)
Slight problem with that... the pics that Cain got were very low-res at best, and shot at a long range. Thrace's pictures were the only ones that were crisp enough for an accurate model to be constructed. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 08:44, 19 August 2007 (CDT)
