This is the Battlestar Tyranus, our mission: Raid any possible Cylon Threats. After the attack, we still keep the objective in mind. Destroy the Cylons and find this so called refugee fleet and find another place to settle in. But most of my crew decides to enjoy the thrill to blow a BaseStar off the face of the map. I Dont even know how many quatrons we have been in space, but we still have the fighting chance to beat them. If any FTL capable vessel recieves this transmission, head to the Wasteland Quadrant II, make sure no Cylon follows you.

Pretty Good

Being a die-hard fan of BSG, I liked it, but it lost me a little on some of the details.
Very nice work overall.
I would have wished for a little voice acting with it, or maybe some more explanation of the purpose of that battle.

Read the Author Comments, their mission says it all.


It's quite nice, actually... The 3d models look more like google sketchup than swift3d, but ok... Oh, and for the person that posted before me, there were 12 battlestars like the galactica, but there were also more battlestars, there weren't only 12...

3D =)

...the storyboard of this animation is quite made up, cuz there is originally only 12 battlestars, each represents the 12 of 13 colonial planets ( e.g Galatica = Caprica )...
but nice animation anyways, i'm not quite sure if you did this with flash only... (the basic gunfiring is flash, but the ships are probabaly not...) what other programs did you use?

The other 1 is swift 3D... its fun and all that good stuff, enjoy.

I'm not sure I know what to say.

Alright. So. I'm rather confused.. was this the reimagined series or the original.. it didn't look like either.. I mean.. the battlestar looked lot like the original series with it's general shape, and the CIC was in a cockpitish place at the front..but.. It had the reimagined bullets and missiles rather then the lasers of the original series. It had the newer basestars.. why were the Cylons naked? They wore clothes in the series..and what model were they? Didn't look like any of the female models, 6,3, or 8.. and why didn't they get blown into space when that missile hit? and the same for when that Colonial officer ran by in the hallway and a hole was blown into the wall. There should have been air rushing out or something, and why didn't the Battlestar just jump away right after launching the nuke, rather then risking it and slowly moving away at sublight?

I gave it a 3/10 because you at least had decent drawing and 3D skills, but soundwise and in overall this was a pretty bad movie.

Making the sleekier one is a bit of a challenge and i did not have the time to do so because of time constraints. Also about the humanoid ones... There was an episode where there were Boomer clones and naked. And you did not seem to take note on the mission statement of the Tyranus (Hunter killer mission). And besides, there were alot of battlestars around. So making my own would be ok...

that was kick@$$

this is the only thing about BSG on here...even tho its wasnt about galactica it was still awsome...u should make some more

critiqUe109 responds:

Thinking about it but, it sure would be nice for anothr one maybe. And uniqueness is something im suprised about lol.
