Which MK VIIe? The Diaspora MK VIIe is our own design and isn't something seen in the show.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
AFAIK that's not the VII-E, it's a retconed normal mkVII

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
There's no two-seat Vipers in the new BSG as far as I know, so it's definately not a strike fighter variant. I'd say Mk.VI or Mk.VIII would be a possible title for the retconned "advanced" Viper.

I'd still like to see bombs on a Viper, though...  :nervous:

It's just not different enough to call it that. It's simply a retcon, one among the many inhouse did.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Well, from some images in-series, I'd assume the Viper Mk.III wasn't that much different from the Mk.II. The cockpit diagram presented to the trainee pilots was that of the Mk.III cockpit, after all.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Huh? Nothing regarding the viper mk3 was ever seen in the show.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
First or second season I think: you never actually see the Mk.III's hull, but you see the cockpit diagram. This is when Thrace is training the new pilots. Also, it's been a pretty long time since I've seen the series. I could be remembering something improperly... But I don't think so.

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
I distinctly remember Starbuck showing them the Viper mk2 and saying that they've never flown anything like it "...so don't think you have". All the trainees were trained on the mk2's, showing them diagrams of a mk3 cockpit would be silly in two ways: 1) why show people the cockpit of a fighter version they'll never fly, since they're trained on the mk2's, and 2) showing a mk3 cockpit would mean they have to make the mk3 cockpit first. Just for that? What's the point, when they never show the mk3 viper and already have the mk2 ready?
Pretty sure you remembered it wrong. Nothing regarding the mk3 was ever seen in the show.

That was the Mark II.

The only Vipers ever mentioned or seen in the show were the Mark II and the Mark VII.

Yes, you are the only one.  All of the retcons were awful, be they Vipers, Centurions, Raiders or Basestars.  The in-house team had terrible taste and there was no reason to screw up what were wonderful designs.

Whoever doesn't share that opinion is wrong. Plain and simple :P

That's the Viper MkVII design we saw in the show, no clue why the people on that site assume it's a MkVIIE.
Either they used real military Planes as example for that naming, or they are BtrL fans, 'cause the MKVIIE is a older design by Starslayer, which was introduced years back on GW, Starslayers MkVII is a 2 seater/ Bomber, though.

He should sue them for stealing tha names. :P

maybe another little video trailer of the theseus or basestar or viper (or whatever you want  :p ) must be great for our hearts   ;)

Funny you should say that. I was planning to upload some pics I took earlier this week anyway.
