Battlestar Galactica

Genre: Sci-Fi Shooter
Publisher: Sierra Online
Developer: Auran
Release Date: October 24, 2007

Battlestar Galactica is a videogame developed by Auran and published by Sierra Online for Xbox Live Arcade and Windows PC.

The story is set during a critical time for the human colonists as the war against the Cylons is coming to close. Adama has recently been assigned to the Galactica as a pilot and gamers play through the events that will shape the man who will later be Commander Adama, the captain of the last Battlestar leading a ragtag fleet of humans to their fabled homeworld called Earth. The game, developed by Warthog, is based on the 2003 Sci-Fi channel miniseries.

Play Sequence

Turns consist of three phases, with all players working through each phase before moving onto the next phase. The phases are defined as follows:

  1. Ready Phase - During the ready phase, players ready and restore existing cards, draw two new cards, and may then play a card as a supply card or asset.

  2. Execution Phase - Players alternate playing a card, playing an ability, challenging, or resolving a mission. When both players have passed consecutively, the phase ends.

  3. Cylon Phase - If the Cylon threat level of the face-up alert and reserve cards exceeds the fleet defense level, the Cylons attack. When this occurs, each player reveals a Cylon threat, and each player must then challenge a threat or pass (losing one influence) until no threats remain or everyone has passed.

The player who goes first in all situations is the player with the lowest current influence at the start of the current phase.

Card Type:

  • Bases - Cards which are not part of the main play deck. Each player reveals a base card at the start of the game, and this card determines a number of factors, including starting hand size and influence.

  • Events - Events which have an immediate effect on the game.

  • Personnel - Individuals or characters from the universe of Battlestar Galactica.

  • Missions - A task or mission which a player's fleet can attempt. Players typically resolve missions by meeting the mission requirements using face-up alert units.

  • Ships - Space-going vessels or ships from Battlestar Galactica.


  • Battlestar Galactica features 10 single-player missions, each of which are based on genuine episodes from seasons one to three of the television show.
  • The multiplayer supports up to eight people on Xbox Live Arcade and 16 on PC-based gaming. All of your favorite multiplayer game types are in as well, from standard deathmatch and team deathmatch to Domination.
  • Battlestar Galactica is focused on pick-up-and-play gameplay.
