Pegasus expansion announced for Battlestar Galactica!
Battlestar Galactica | Published 10 June 2009

On behalf of the officers and crew of the's a pleasure to see all of you. Welcome back to the Colonial Fleet.

- Admiral Helena Cain, "Pegasus"

For nearly half a year following the destruction of the Twelve Colonies, the crew of the Battlestar Galactica defended the last remaining human survivors. Then, all at once, salvation appeared in the form of the Battlestar Pegasus. At nearly twice the size of Galactica, with upgraded weapons batteries and a newer, larger fleet of Vipers and Raptors, the fleet was now safer...

...or so they thought.

This fall brings the first expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game. The Pegasus expansion adds two new supplemental game boards featuring the Battlestar Pegasus and the planet of New Caprica, seven new characters, a new Cylon Locations overlay, two plastic Basestars, as well as new Destination, Crisis, Loyalty, Quorum, Super Crisis, and Skill cards.

The new Pegasus board can be used by itself or together with the New Caprica board to create the game you desire – use the Pegasus alone for the additional firepower she provides, or add the New Caprica board to simulate the rebellion on the human colony, bringing the game to an epic level.

New rules introduce the ability to play as a new character type – the Cylon Leader, with a new Treachery Skill card type.

I am a flag officer on detached service during a time of war. Regulations give me broad authority in this matter.

- Admiral Helena Cain

Launch the fighters.

- Commander William Adama

How will the crews of the Galactica and the Pegasus mesh when they join each other on your game table? Will the Cylons be able to subjugate the human rebellion on New Caprica? Will an open Cylon Leader be able to vent the last remaining humans into space, giving the toasters control over the galaxy?

Pegasus will be FTL jumping into your friendly local game store this Fall. Be on the lookout for previews leading up to the expansion's release.

So say we all!


Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is a semi-cooperative game of politics, betrayal, and survival for 3-6 players, based on the hit SciFi Channel series.

This sounds so good that I had to get the original so that I will be able to buy the expansion

Don't want to be vain or something, but the Pegasus board looks a hell lot, like what I have done with the Unofficial Pegasus Expansion (I also have a fourth location, but it's not printed on the board, but a separate card).

Can any official capacity tell me, if this was even slightly influenced by what I've done? I wont sue you or something, just want to know, if it's pure coincidence.

Great, great news!! Time to start another savings envelope.

Yeah, I am doing the same thing... but I am not sure I'll purchase it, and surely not at launch!

I will wait a week or two... because one thing is paramount: it MUST fix the sympathiser rule! Otherwise I will just have 2 broken games, instead of one.

and thats a no go

I like where this is going! It looks like the Cylon leader will be playing out in the open, which is reasonable; considering the storyline of New Caprica and all that went on there. Having a Cylon Leader out in the open will also automatically alter the social dynamics and strategies for each side.

Also, by centering this expansion on the Pegasus and New Caprica storyline it leaves a lot of room for FFG to utilize the other BSG plots and storylines for future expansions. Excellent! At least... I am hoping that is their intent.

Oh lord. Too many awesome games in the pipe. Time to sell some I guess.

Oh, man! Too cool. I really hope they take future expansions all the way to the end of the series. They could even release later versions of the original characters to represent the changing of the character in the show. Can't wait for this. Great work Fantasy Flight.
