Battlestars have been the primary defensive platform of the Commonwealth for 10 years.
These impressive ships act as an assault carrier in wartime. During peace they have become
the olive branch of military showing the force of mankind.
USER DEFINED COMPONENTS (Modified Cargo:1,559.75, Cost 1,104.5Mcr)
1  2nd Type 22 Meson Spinal Mount (2,000.00 tons, Crew 20, Cost MCr 600.00),
1  Dual Spinal Mount Weapons Carriage
            (4,000.00 tons, Crew 0, Cost MCr 500.00, requires 40 Hardpoints),
1 Fuel Purification Superfuel Refinery Upgrade (375.00 tons, Crew 8, Cost MCr 4.5),
2 Landing Bays 4,000.00 tons)

Each Battlestar carriers a minimum force of 75 interceptor fighters, Vipers, and 1000t of fuel.
The cargo capacity of the vessel is 1,559.75 tons. 8,000 tons of space are split into two 4,000ton
high speed, internal recovery, landing decks.  These decks are capable of holding larger vessels.
In pressing times a deck can be used for other purposes while the other deck recovers the fighters. 
Either can also hold cargo. The Commander (captain) has a 6t cabin, there are 9 single cabins for
officers, 10 single and 260 double occupancy cabins available.      .                                                                                                                                                                                
1. Fuel Home Rules:
- Fuel Purification on battlestars can choose to produce Superfuel (double jump fuel). The cost of the
Purification system is doubled. If used, the time to purify fuel is doubled. Purification System
Maintenance is doubled. Crew is doubled.
   (375t, 8 crew, 9Mcr)                                                                                                                                                                               
- Use of the 1/2 fuel rule will relinquish 45,000t of jump fuel. Or keep it as fuel/cargo containers.                                                                       
2. Dual Spinal Mount Home Rules:                                                                                                                        
 A Dual Spinal Mount Weapons Carriage has been integrated:
- The carriage is the size of 2 spinal mounts but requires the appropriate amount of hardpoints
(aka, structural supports) connected to the ship hull and the weapons.
- Only 1 spinal mount can be fired in a turn but they can alternate.
- Each spinal mount has a seperate crew.
- Energy Points are only provided to fire 1 at a time in this design.
- The cost is equivalent to 1/2 of an enclosed spinal mount weapon.
- Damage against the spinal mounts should be randomly rolled between carriage, weapon 1 and
weapon 2.
- Firing Both near simultaneously: (where there is a will, there is a way)
- Should energy be diverted to fire both, a roll must be made on the internal ship damage table.
This is a result of the structural damage to the ship.

A referee can return to core rule ideology by converting the 2nd spinal mount and carriage to
6000t cargo, 20 crew, 40 hardpoints, 1.1Bcr.
