"ESTABLISHED IN JULY 2000, MAKES IT THE OLDEST FAN CLUB ORGANIZATION FOR BATTLESTAR GALACTICA"

THE WEBSITE IS GOING THROUGH CHANGES AS IT IS MIGRATING AND BEING RECONSTRUCTED FOR ITS UPCOMING SILVER ANNIVERSARY NEXT YEAR


"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens.

NOTE:  **THE WEBSITE WILL GO THROUGH SOME CHANGES FOR THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLUB ORGANIZATION - JULY 1, 2025**

Battlestar Dreadnought Specs and Background

Battlestar Dreadnought (Heketokares-Class Heavy Battlestar): Specifications: Crew: Approx. 6,000 ships crew + 200 dedicated commtechs Propulsion: 8x Enhanced sublight engines, RCS Clusters Role: Super Carrier/Battleship Hybrid Armaments: 10x Primary batteries (5x Dorsal/Ventral Spine Triple Super-Heavy turrets); 24x Secondary heavy batteries (6x2 twin turrets port/starboard); 40x Tertiary medium batteries port/starboard (10x2 twin turrets port/starboard); many duel AAA/PDC batteries (groups of 6/12 networked batteries); 10x VLS Missile tubes (Nuclear Capable) Defenses & Features: ECM/ECCM; Drone decoy system; Advanced Fleet CIC facilities Aircraft: Full Viper Mk VII compliment, Full Raptor compliment, Aviation facilities: 4x flight pods; 4x flight decks; 160x Viper launch tubes; 4x flight pod hangars; Viper construction facilities Dimensions: Length 2584.2 meters; Background: the Heketonkares-Class Heavy Battlestar is a true goliath. Produced during the 50 year armistice, 5 years prior to the Fall of the Colonies. It truly lives up to its class namesake the “Hundred Handed” goliath of legend. The secondary guns are equal to the huge forward batteries of the Mercury-Class. Its primary turrets are the biggest over made by colonial shipyards, each barrel firing 800cm diameter shells that can shred a Basestar in very short order. & that is w/out the 600cm & 400cm batteries being added. Its unique turret layout offers equal coverage on all arcs other then directly forward. It also has a large aviation compliment in 4 separate flight pods that are recessed into the Dreadnoughts incredibly thick flanks making them very difficult to damage. The Massive forward head section is divided into upper, lower jaw & teeth. The top section is the most heavily armored & contains the ships bridge; incredibly powerful sensors & electronics are buried in the two side sections. The luxurious crew accommodations are sandwiched between the two massively armored sections in “the teeth”, all studded by banks of AAA guns. The primary role of the Dreadnought is to be the Command ship of a large Armada providing heavy artillery & strategic CIC support. It has nearly all-around heavy gun & armor coverage making it ideal for anchoring the center of a fleet formation. This behemoth features dedicated Fleet CIC functions w/ a large dedicated communications staff. Its secondary battery placement makes any attempt to flank the fleet a highly dangerous endeavor. The only truly “safe” attack vector is directly from the prow & this is covered by numerous PDC banks & incredibly thick armor plus the armada it would be at the center of. This makes the Dreadnought a true force multiplier in large scale fleet engagement.
