    Adama: Don't worry about Pegasus. I'll take care of that motherfrakker myself. Just have Roslin bathed, perfumed and in my bunk for when I get back.

    Yeah, the Pegasus would win, hands down. It's just a bigger, vastly superior ship to the Galactica. I wished they kept it in the series.

    Love that Gecko.

    Obviously by the numbers Pegasus is the superior ship. If you were Adama, how would you defeat it?

    The best way to take on a superior ship like the Pegasus would be to fire first and try and take out the engines. It would be my hope to knock out the power to the ship so that it wouldn't be able to fight, leaving them no choice but to surrender. Which is along the same lines of what you've stated in a previous post.

    Maybe bring the Galactica in close behind the Peggy, right on top of the engine section, where there are no gun batteries, and just keep bashing until they lose power.

    Bear in mind I would be trying not to destroy the Peggy completely; it would be a big advantage to the Rag Tag Fleet to keep this monster in the ranks.

    I've been working on the Pegasus model kit by Moebius for the past week, so I've had this ship a lot on the brain, lately.

    Galactica. Despite size and power issues, Galactica has a greater concentration of experienced tactical minds.

    Yeah Kongo,

    I was thinking to hyperjump about a shiplength behind the Peggy and immediately fire Galactica's upper guns at Peggy's engines with the goal to disable and reopen advantaged talks to grab Chief and Helo.

    Since you've got the model, is there no sternside defensive capability on Pegasus? Or Galactica for that matter? How far along are you on the Beast build? Best of luck.

    I'm just starting the Beast, meaning I've just got the primer paint on the unassembled parts. The problem is that I'm also building two other projects right now (a starship from Star Trek, and Green Lantern--both are almost done), so the Beast still has quite a ways to go.

    But the model shows no defensive grid on the engine section whatsoever. The same for the Galactica, as well. The engine section appears to be the weak spot of these monsters, but I'd imagine it would still be a super bitch just to reach this area without taking a lot of flak from either the Bucket or the Beast (as well as their respective Viper squadrons).

    And thanks! I'm debating right now whether I want to build it as the Peggy, or maybe as another ship in the Mercury-Class.

    The TOS Galactica would destroy them both without breaking a sweat. It's more massive and can take a lot of punishment, has a greater fighter capacity (at least greater than NuGalactica) and has long-distance high-energy weapons that could carve open anything seen in NuBSG.
