Oh, yes, I'm certain those will be in. They've already shown off the Bolitho and they'll certainly have the Sobek-class (at the very least) available, if not Pegasus and Galactica as well.

Excellent!! So we get to order the capship around?

Re: About R1 Shattered Armistace... who's gona get on multiplayer?
Yes, you can give the capital ships waypoints and orders in FRED.

But in game?

...no. Probably not. I mean, you could make a mission where you ordered capships around, it'd probably just be awful.

If it's anything like FS2 (which in most ways it is), capship combat is best handled by preset waypoints and careful scripting. The capital ship AI is not meant to work on its own. A base ship, for instance, would get as close as possible and begin circling its target (which makes very little sense.)

In any case, in what possible situation would a Viper jock be giving attack orders to a capital warship?

You might be able to give the Bolitho sensible attack orders, but not much bigger.

However, the ships will certainly be PRESENT in single and multiplayer missions. They'll shoot at the enemy, shoot at you, shoot at whatever you tell them to in FRED. They'll move around and follow their courses, you'll be able to blow off their turrets and disable their engines, all that. You just won't be able to tell them what to shoot or where to go in-game.

But they will be attacking the other faction and deploying reinforcements? Great.

Also, how about my PvE suggestion where a squad of you take down 2 battlestars, 4 gunboats and 100 fighters?

You've basically described a gauntlet mission. We've already said we're including that sort of thing.

Bear in mind that a player is going to have a very hard time taking down a battlestar.

How could such a plot be canon?

Speaking of plot, we seem to have lost it somewhat. Back on topic guys. :p

Re: About R1 Shattered Armistace... who's gona get on multiplayer?
Heh I'm going to throw a nuke at the battlestar. No, 2 nukes (dual launch).

3 of us throwing 2 nukes each... fighters providing cover... while we get up to point blank range and shoot.

BOOM we all die together. However, seeing in the show one nuke nearly took out the galactica, I doubt we will need 6...

Piff

Dont you know anything!!!
That wont work.
You need to capture one of their craft, dock with the mother basestar, upload a virus that disables the enemy fleet and then wipe them out with small fighter craft and suicidal rednecks!!!  :D

The nuke that hit the Galactica in the mini made only a few scratches and dents into the hull.
You'll need more then 6 nukes to destroy the bucket. :)

[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Actually, unlike most shows, Galactica doesn't seem wildly more resilient than any other ship. She only takes one nuke (and a lot of conventional hits, but the clearly add up.)
