24 missile tubes? That's twice the number on the Columbia. Packs a punch.

Are the missile tubes conventional, nuclear or both?

I think that tubes are nukes only, since the Theseus seems to utilize the same weapons like Galactica and Pegasus, which can be switched to fire, either Flak or missiles.
There would be no need to have dedicated missile launchers except for nukes, which are much larger then the average missile.

 :nervous:

Or something.

I thought that the missiles only fired from the forward tubes on the Galactica?

Nope, in the episode "Resurrection Ship" in the scene where Gal and Peg circle around the Basstar, you can see
Gal's dorsal batteries firing missiles.

I'm skeptical on that one, looking at the trails from the guns in the battle, they all seem fairly linear, i.e. shells with a tracer effect.

I don't think we have a number set. If you're asking because of the modeled nametag, the final release will have an alphamapped plane for that, so that fred-ers can swap names easily.

Putting anything in the wiki at the moment is really premature as we've not released anything yet and reserve the right to change anything about the ship still.

They are big enough. They simply don't look it.

Even though Brandx0 isn't making the model, eps200 reminded me:

It's not to the correct dimensions seen in the show.

I suggest you call up RDM and tell him to fix his version then. We were here first. :p

Judging from the size of the launchtubes, the size of the hangar is perfect.
The respective counterparts of Gal and Peg aren't much bigger.

btw. I'd like to see the Theseus from the side... :nervous:

You will. Once it's in the game and released you can see it from any angle you want. :D
