Should Cylon ships be in this page, or on "Cylons"? Because I think Cylons is kind of full and it would be better to list them here. --The Merovingian (C - E) 11:23, 3 June 2006 (CDT)

I agree with you Merovingian, I think we should put the ships of the cylons (Basestar, raider, heavy raider, ressurection ship, etc.) There are 2 options, either put the cylon ships in the cylon portal, or put it in the ship portal:

1. (Ship Portal) If we were to put it in the ship portal, then we would have to edit the the portal to include two sections in it like: Colonial and Cylon, and then have all of the colonial ships, and then all of the cylon ships.
2. (Cylon Portal) With this idea of putting it on the cylon portal, maybe you could in the cylon portal have Cylon Models "Cylon Models of the Original Series" (model 0005) and have "Cylon Models of the Re-imaged Series" as sub heading/level 2 headings (also add the CGI Model); and then have Cylon Ships ; "Cylon Ships of the Original Series" (model 0005) and have "Cylon Ships of the Re-imaged Series" which would include (Basestar, raider, heavy raider, ressurection ship, etc.).

But with this idea with putting it in the cylon portal, would be too much as you have already said. so i agree with putting it in the ships portal. I also think we should also have the viper mark 1, mark vii, and the raptor in the ships part currently now, as those ships are the integral part of the whole of the show.--Lgamser 22:13, 4 June 2006 (CDT)

Again on the ships portal, if we do put the raptor and viper on the portal, we will ahve to delete the viper and raptor categories, cause i see no point in just listing the different vipers (101, 453, etc) found in the different episodes of the series. Just have ONE article for viper and raptor and just list the different raptors in the series and where they were found, as well as the viper article.--Lgamser 22:13, 4 June 2006 (CDT)


I have put the viper mark 11 and v11 and the raptor on the portal, what do you guys think?... i think we should get another better image of the viper mark 11, it doesn't fit in well with the white background--Lgamser 23:15, 4 June 2006 (CDT)

Its a good picture but i think for that page it would look better if it were a pic taken in space, in "action" --Mercifull 03:23, 5 June 2006 (CDT)
I think this pic would work well. I tried adding it but it wouldn't work. --Talos 09:44, 5 June 2006 (CDT)
Viper Mk II

I think we should get another picture of the clyon raider, as it is too white in color, can somebody try and get the raider in space for the black background which fits in with the black theme of the website, and maybe another picture of the original series prision barge (i know it is hard to get), as it has the line on the right side that you can see on it.--Lgamser 06:26, 9 June 2006 (CDT)

I cropped the line off of the TOS prison barge. --Steelviper 10:00, 9 June 2006 (CDT)
