The Basestar is the largest and most fearsome Capital class ship available in the Cylon fleet. The flagship of the Cylon fleet is normally based in 47 Tartalon, this ship may be controlled by a player for a maximum of 1 hour and can shred entire fleets with it's massive array of missile launchers.

It can be rented by paying up to 20,000 merits (depends on amount of outposts your side has, the less the cheaper) from Number One/Cavil inside the CIC of primary Basestar located in 242 Apollid. The player then controls the Basestar for 1 hour or until it is destroyed (which ever occurs first).

The Basestar can be a tide-turning asset to any fleet and in the right hands it can wipe out a large portion the sector map if players are not expecting it, or fail to respond to calls for Outpost Defense. The most exciting fleet battles occur when the Colonial fleet fields the Battlestar Pegasus at the same time and they meet. This can cause massive battles over sector control.

It should be noted that while this is the toughest ship in the Cylon fleet, it is advisable to travel with other ships as support as the Basestar is not able to take on multiple ships on its own and survive for long.

This ship cannot be upgraded/advanced.

Update 55.5 saw some changes to this ship. With this update, the Basestar Missile Batteries are now unable to target escorts.

Update 56 saw some further changes to this ship. It saw some changes to the stats for its weaponry. Also it saw an increase in the rental price.

A potent symbol of Cylon might, Basestars represent the pinnacle of current Cylon technology. Armed with massively powerful missile batteries and multiple point defense batteries, a Basestar can easily engage and destroy fleets of small ships."
