The Baseship is issue #5 from Eaglemoss' Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection, a series of collectible models from the Battlestar Galactica multiverse.
From Eaglemoss' product page (United States):
- The Cylon Baseship was an ominous opponent for Colonial Warriors with its range of powerful weapons, Cylon fleet and shielding capabilities. The double saucer-shaped ship of the Cylon Alliance was a warship of immense proportions, crewed by Centurion troops under the ultimate command of the Imperious leader [sic].
- The ship comes complete with a 16-page collector’s magazine providing an in-depth profile of the ship, exclusive behind the scenes articles, original design sketches, and an interview with the series developer, Ronald D. Moore [sic].
From Eaglemoss' product page (United Kingdom):
- With its range of powerful weapons, Cylon fleet and shielding capabilities, the Cylon Baseship proved an ominous opponent for Colonial Warriors and is the next instalment [sic] in Battlestar Galactica The Official Ships Collection.
- In the Seventh Millennia of recorded history, the Cylon Alliance destroyed the Twelve Worlds of Man. Key to their power was their fleet of Baseships. The double saucer-shaped Baseship of the Cylon Alliance was a warship of immense proportions, crewed by Centurion troops under the ultimate command of the Imperious Leader.
- The magazine features an in-depth look at the ship, its history plus concept artist Ralph McQuarrie's stunning designs.
The collector's magazine for this item features:
- Page 1: Front Cover
- Page 2: Stand Assembly Instructions
- Page 3: Design Spec
- Page 4: Ship Profile
- Pages 8 - 9: Orthographic Views and Callouts
- Pages 10 - 13: Behind the Scenes - "Leader of the Pack"
- Page 14: Ralph McQuarrie - "Insect Race" (feature on the Ovions)
- Page 15: Advertisement for Issue 7 - Viper Mark VII
Erroneously interspersed within the magazine are insignia and emblems from the Re-imagined Series exclusively:
- Colonial seal on the back cover, in the background of page 2, and across the page spread of 8 and 9;
- Galactica seal on the front cover next to the ship's name;
- Emblems for each of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol in the bottom margin of pages 8 and 14, and the upper margin of page 9;
- Primus' squadron emblem on the top of page 3, and the left margin of page 8.
Additionally, the magazine does not include a Ronald D. Moore interview (despite the claims on the Eaglemoss U.S. sales page for this item), as this an Original Series offering.
