Galactica (2003 Video Game)
From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide
The battlestar Galactica is the central ship in the video game Battlestar Galactica, released in 2003 by Vivendi Universal Games.
The setting of this game depicts Galactica as a veteran battleship in a setting that makes it a prequel of the events of the Original Series by approximately 35-45 yahren, but with significant differences to both continuities.
The player takes on the role of "William Adama", a character that shares the name of his Re-imagined Series character, but whose history and continuity as a Viper pilot follows more more closely the technology and backstory of the Original Series. As such, the battlestar Galactica shown in the game is generally the Original Series version and seems mostly, but not fully, integrated in the Original Series continuity.
The young Adama grows into leadership throughout the course of the game. Confirming Adama's progression is the appearance of the Imperious Leader Erebus, Adama that, according to "sacred prophesies" he will "lead the last surviving humans to the location of the 13th tribe". The age of the battlestar as stated in the game implies that Galactica has fought for at least half of the Thousand Yahren War.
The Galactica of the game is predominantly based on the Original Series version of Galactica, but with notable changes from TOS canon, to reflect her in-game approximately 500-yahren service and the fact that she has had to rely on alien technology (a game exclusive) for upgrades and repairs. Text from the game notes:
Given the ship is based on the original, it is reasonable to assume her size and capabilities mirror those of the Original Series battlestars.
Five battlestars are mentioned in the game:
