A new update has his the free-to-play Battlestar Galactica Online, which has been in open beta for a couple of months now, which lets players pilot a Battlestar or a Cylon Basestar depending on their faction.
PC Gamer talked to the game's lead designer, Andy Butcher, who clarified that the Galactica will always be under Adama's control. But you can earn "Merits" (in-game currency points) to take command of the Pegasus or the Cylon's secondary Basestar for one hour, or until the ship is destroyed.
The latest update also adds improved visuals and new fighters. If you need even more Battlestar Galactica, keep in mind that you can get your fix in the Diaspora Freespace 2 mod as well. Although after the last season of BSG and most of Caprica, you can be excused for having banished the franchise from memory. Until that new show hits, right?
