Looks like a fighter-vs-fighter game ala X-Wing. I'd be much more interested in a larger scale game ala Armada.

I agree.

Agreed

Though I would prefer to see Babylon 5 fleets given this type of treatment

Has potential to be a bit different from X-Wing.

What I wonder is if they will have 'turn and bank' for the 70s ships and 'pivot and vector' for the 2000s ships.

The designers said in an interview that the game will encompass the capitol ships as well. But yes I thought BSG lends itself more to fleet battles with a stand representing a squadron of fighters.

Very interesting! I managed to get quite a few of the Hasbro fighters when they came out. I wonder if they will work with the game mechanics?
