Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
Just curious if you guys ever got a StealthStar model yet?
Looking for something artsy to build again  ;)

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
Nope. No stealthstar as yet. It's not particularly high on the list seeing as how it only appeared once and didn't do anything apart from getting blown up. :p

 :wtf: is a "Stealth Star"?

Did you meant the Valkyrie class?

Nope, it's the stealth fighter from episode 3x08 "Hero", for pics, check the Battlestar wiki.

Which oddly enough was the episode where the Valkyrie was introduced.

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
Not sure where you'd get sufficient references to build one accurately anyway..

Whatever happened to that guy in the Stealth-star anyway?

I never liked that ship. No need to add -star to everything.

Agreed. "Battlestar" sounds cool - it was a decoration given to ships detailing a number of successful engagements they've been through. "Basestar" is still ok. But putting the -star everywhere kinda gets cheesy.

cheesystar?
it's basicially the hull of a battlestar, but yellow-white, and has lots of holes for missles and shis to fly through.
gets utterly owned by ratstars though.

Don't forget the Baltarstar either. :)

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
I sort of treat the "-star" suffix as an abbreviation of "starship", in the same way that "-ship" is tacked onto the end of several kinds of naval vessel.

(Series 3 onwards spoilers)
Does anyone else find it slightly ironic that
Spoiler:
the Stealthstar, a purpose built stealth ship, was near useless against the Cylons, yet the cobbled together Blackbird was near flawless? Even accounting for the fact that the Blackbird was, in effect, built by a Cylon it amuses me somewhat.

It's probably the difference of going against specialized border advanced warning systems instead of your basic warship sensor net.

Spoiler:
If I remember well, the SS was not hit... that was a collision, so it WAS effectively invisible...until the accident of course.

Blackbird suffered the same fate.

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
Spoiler:
There's also the fact that the Stealth Star was broadcasting to the Valkyrie, while the Blackbird made it a practice to run silent. And it's always possible that the Admiralty really wanted a war, and the first ship that took a shot at the Stealth Star was Colonial, and only the two that jumped in later were Cylon.

 
Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
The Stealthstar is actually a beauty of a ship, a kitbasher made a really nice model of one.

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
That makes it seem even more ridiculous. If it's a stealth fighter, why add star to the end?

 
Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
Do you know, until this thread, I never even tied in "Stealth Star" With "Battlestar" or "Basestar."

What exactly is so ridiculous about -naming- it that?  It's not like the name itself would give away the position of a stealth craft.

Re: Did you guys get the StealthStar yet?
I think you missed his point there, which was that it's silly to add -star to everything. Especially fighters. Nothing to do with functionality, it's just cheesy.
