From the publisher:
After 4,571 days, the Cylon War ended with a sudden armistice. Peace lasted 40 years. But now the Cylons are back, as fierce and combative as ever. They want to exterminate what remains of Mankind. And they have a plan.
The Twelve Colonies are wasted and in ruins. But the Colonial Fleet is there, to face Cylon spaceships and protect what it is left of Mankind.
In BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - STARSHIP BATTLES, players take control of Colonial and Cylon spaceships and face each other in furious dogfights and daring missions.
The innovative game system features easy to learn rules, a unique set of maneuver cards for each spaceship, and two exclusive devices - the control panel and the rotating miniature base. You will be able to relive the exciting combat sequences from the TV series on your tabletop, just a few minutes after opening the box!
This Starter Set includes four beautiful ready-to-play miniatures: two Colonial Vipers Mk. II (including Apollo’s Viper and his pilot card) and two Cylon Raiders, along with their special control panels, playing bases and maneuver decks. Also included are combat rulers, spaceship cards, pilot cards, talent and flaw cards, asteroid and planetoid templates, and everything else you need to play.
You can begin playing with the Quick Start Rules, to handle a simple dogfight where the goal is eliminating your opponents. Once you've learned the basics of flying and fighting with a spaceship, you can go to the Complete Rules and experiment many other scenarios, and then add further details to the game by including some or all the Optional Rules and using Optional Features, which add special elements to the game, from pilots' abilities to the use of asteroid fields and planetoids.
This Starter Set is a complete game, but it is also your starting point for the whole range of Battlestar Galactica — Starship Battles products. You can add more spaceships to your games with additional Starter Sets or Spaceship Packs.
