Battlestar Galactica Online is a free-to-play, browser-based MMO made by Bigpoint Games based on the Battlestar Galactica television series.
Battlestar Galactica Online takes place during Season 2 of the television series, where most of the space battles of the series happened.. While it will line-up with storyline elements seen in the show, there will be parts that fill-in-the-gaps for game-play purposes.
In the beginning of Battlestar Galactica Online, the player plays through a standard tutorial , during which the plot of the game is shown. After completing the tutorial, the player is able to customize their character to the extent of their chosen faction Human or Cylon and select the ship they begin with. The player can collect resources and eventually buy larger and more powerful vessels, which come in classifications of strike (small craft/fighters), escorts (medium ships), and line (heavy ships).
