The Colonial Gun Star is the pinnacle of combat engineering design. When Colonial engineers started drawing up the blue prints for this military vessel the goal was simple. Develop a ship able to bring the fight literally to the enemy foot steps and knock on the door. After several design developments Cygus Ship Yard (CSY) created a marvel master piece meeting Colonial Military Fleet exact specifications. Every aspect of war was used and incorporated into the Gun Star making it a multi-purpose/role ship. Its redesigned weapons system gives this ship its muscle making it superior in firepower. Enabling this warship to handle various missions its overall design makes this ship fast and highly maneuverable yet long-endurance in combat.
Primary mission of the Cygnus Class Gun Star is as follows intended to escort or give direct support of larger military vessels in the fleet, convoy or battle group and defend them. It's secondary mission to perform as a Command Control and Communications platform.
There are five different types of Classifications for each Gun Star in operation. You are the Chapter leader and as such you can choose the "Classification". For CDF HQ purposes and easier tracking all Gun Star chapters will fall under CYGNUS Class".
Cygnus is a small escort designed to work in conjunction with a battlestar group. The main role of the gunstar is force protection — in this case, to protect the lead battlestar by setting up an extended perimeter. The gunstar is well-armed, but not designed for protracted fights. The through-beam landing strip is meant only for standard ferrying and victual activities; she carries no fighters
In the slide show, is a number of pictures of our beloved Gunstar, Trireme,GSR-020, How could I go about getting one like it? Also, two pics of, I presume, our flagship, Raven. I would like one of her as well, if I may. Make no mistake, I was brought into this world loving the original Battlestar Galactica. I went to a drive in theater with my brother to watch the movie, and I have been hooked ever since. I was skeptical with a rewrite, as they usually go terrible. BUT! to my glad heart, it was just as good, if not better than the original. Truly what it was supposed to be as a saga. I want to do this up right, and participate as I can. I live in Southern Ohio (Ohia) to ussens from here LOL. I would like to speak more to you, in private, if I may. You have my email, contact will be appreciated. And I am still looking for a good call sign. Thank you all very much for adding me to our family -- So say we all.
Thanks for the welcome, Commander. I am interested in spreading the word that my company, sommers, provided the original Chromaflair material for viper uniforms and there has been demand from fans but we have not stocked this color in years. Now, we are putting together a list of interested people as we might run this unique color. Thanks for your feedback
Sorry about taking so long to reply. I think, when looking over the various battlestar "crews," I didn't understand the differences between the battlestars. What are the advantages and disadvantages between battlestar "crews," if any ?
Understood! One Question, though: In the discussion threat regarding Operations aboard The Raven here it is stated that: "OP's always take place on a Saturday night at 10:PM EST." However, the dates that were sent to me by Cpt. Morelock is the 13th, 20th, or 27th - all of which are Sundays. Because of time zones, 10:00 PM EST means 04:00 AM for me - so in the case of the 20th or 27th that's 04:00 AM from Sunday to Monday. This is fairly inconvenient because of work. I will be able to report for duty at this time once, but for the future, it would be good to know whether or not the rule stated for Operations regarding The Raven still stands in general. Operations between Saturday and Sunday would be much more convenient!
