The new BSG Online Game will “contain the likenesses of” Chief Tyrol (and some other BSG characters). Chief is listed under the “Human” heading. I guess this is either a mistake or the game is set before the end of Season 3 when the final four were revealed as cylons (?????).


Battlestar Galactica Online Gets Some Familiar Faces
Eight characters from the show to hold house in the SyFy MMO.

When it was announced that Bigpoint – a developer of web-based games – had acquired the Battlestar Galactica license and intended to create an MMO with it (to be called Battlestar Galactica Online), it was met with a mixed response from our commenters. The response was based purely on the fact that it was to be free-to-play and browser-based, and typically browser-based is associated with “cheap and/or ugly”. There was understandable speculation that it would be a standard game with few ties to the much-loved Battlestar Galactica universe.

Today, it was announced that many major characters from the popular SyFy show would have a presence within the game, rendered in fairly impressive 3D, considering it is running in your browser.

According to the announcement, the game will contain the likenesses of:

William “Admiral” Adama portrayed by Edward James Olmos
Kara “Starbuck” Thrace portrayed by Katee Sackhoff
Lee “Apollo” Adama portrayed by Jamie Bamber
Galen “Chief” Tyrol portrayed by Aaron Douglas

Number Six portrayed by Tricia Helfer
Number Eight portrayed by Grace Park
Number One (John Cavil) portrayed by Dean Stockwell
Number Two (Leoben Conoy) portrayed by Callum Keith Rennie

The screens look decent enough, as you can see, though we’ll wait to see it running in our own browsers.
