In Battlestar Galactica - Starship Battles, players take control of Colonial and Cylon spaceships and face each other in furious dogfights and daring missions. The innovative game system features easy to learn rules, a unique set of maneuver cards for each spaceship, and two exclusive devices - the control panel(included in the Starter Set or as a separate accessory ?BSG501A) and the rotating miniature base (included in each Spaceship Pack). Each Battlestar Galactica - Spaceship Pack is a ready-to-play model, painted and assembled.
The Raider is the primary Cylon assault craft, first encountered during the destruction of the Twelve Colonies. The ship is actually a bio-mechanical, self-aware living creature, with a complex system of organs, veins and biological fluids inside its main body. The Raider is armed with two kinetic energy guns, and it may sometimes carry conventional and nuclear missiles. Capable of FTL jumps, Raiders are also very maneuverable and hard to keep in sight for more than a few seconds.
