Hello there...

The new design was somewhat of a cross between the look of the old class battlestars, and yet with elements of the new one..Aside from that, it has mostly hull plating (to absorb more damage) , as opposed to the Galactica which has more ribbing...

The harder edges were intentional as well, to match the interior style of the sets more.

Comments: Would you be able to comment on the design of the new Pegasus? Was the new design meant to resemble the original series' Galactica and Pegasus Battlestars?

I'm asking in order to make an update to the BSG Wiki: http://battlestarwiki.org/index.php?title=Mercury_class_battlestar Thanks,
