Post news RSS Name that Battlestar

A small discussion with the fans to see what names they would like to see on the battlestar classes.

Posted by on

The Colonies have long been known to name their ships no matter how big or small they are. For the mod we want our battlestars to have the input of the public. All Suggestions for Battlestar names which are sensible and good will be approved and put into the mod for use by the Battlestars that will be built.

The battlestars require upto 150 different names, and i know i wont be able to make that many of them up, so i thought why not let the fans decide. Below are Screenshots of the battlestars which require names, in your comment please state to which battlestar you would like the name to relate too, and the class of the ship.

Mercury Class Battlestars

Colonial Vessels

Galactica Class Battlestars

Colonial Vessels

Valkyrie Class Battlestars
Colonial Vessels

Talos Class Battlestars

Sirius Class Battlestars

Tiger Class Supportstars

Vega Class Strikestars

Cyngus Class Firestars

So you have all the ships that i need names for, so lets get cracking, throw me the names that you'd like the battlestars to be, we need loads :)

Thanks

Byron

P.S I hope to do something similar to the cylon ships once they are ready, and also these arnt all the colonial vessels, these are the 100% likely vessels to be in Version 1 of the Release.

Hey Byron,

I took some time looking these up, so I hope you like 'em!

All the suggestions are the latin names of different birds of prey.

Mercury Class: (Kites, harriers, goshawks)- Accipiter, Harpia, Haliastur, Ictinia, Melierax

Galactica Class: (Eagles, hawks) - Kaupifalco, Butastur, Gypaetus, Ictinaetus, Terathopius

Valkyrie Class: (Vultures, buzzards) - Aegypius, Torgos, Aviceda, Leptodon, Necrosyrtes

Talos Class: (Falcons) - Ibycter, Caracara, Micrastur, Alopex, Altaicus

Sirius Class: (Owls) - Aegolius, Jubula, Ninox, Otus, Strix

Tiger Class: (More owls... they have really cool names) - Aluco, Nebulosa, Hylophila, Varia, Ocellata

Vega Class: (Owls... still...) - Grallistrix, Nesasio, Pulsatrix, Surnia, Xenoglaux

Cyngus Class: (Families of Birds of Prey) - Tytonidae, Pandionidae, Strigidae, Cathartidae, Sagittariidae

Like I said, I thought it was a cool theme, but I know some of them are hard to pronounce. Thank you so much for making this mod. I'm counting down the days til March 3rd! Keep up the good work, and best of luck!
