    A must have for all fans of Battlestar Galactica and Science Great book although it is padded out with irrelevant photos of the cast from the show if that weren t the case, then it would have 5 stars

    WHAT THE HELL IS THIS This reads and looks like a book for computer game walkthrough in 90s prima strategy guides All pictures are in black and white as if this book was photocopied in low resolution to be done for the cheap I would have thought the writers and the Publisher Wiley would have given technical readouts of the ships with diagrams and cut outs especially on the Battlestars both Peguses and Galactica or diagrams to explain the science like they do with other scifi books Even Physics book of today have diagram to explain.I wouldn t even give it a star AVOID like the plague

    As souveniers go this book is great However, there is a lot of physics, as in real science physics in it for my taste I would have wanted to learn of the show and a little less of the science

    If you are a fan of BSG and you have lingering unanswered questions then this is the book for you, incredibly well written and able to explain away any kind of scientific argument or doubt you may have with the series plot I Feared that it may be difficult to read but it s written in a very witty and humerous manner so much so that its very difficult to put down In summary it s frakkin excellent and you ll be desperatly looking for somebody to share your new found scientifc knowledge with

    Realy enjoyed reading this book, its well written and easy to understand It gives you insights into what would have worked in real life and what is pure science fiction It explains things about the shows plot but its mostly about about the science of the show Even a none fan of the show would learn a lot from this book A realy good read highly recomended.

    A great book that explores both the science and the fiction of the reimagined BSG series There s a whole lot of accurate real world science that the book explains in an understandable but accurate manner I d recommend to any BSG fan who also has at least a passing interest in modern science.

    Disclaimer I m not an expert in mathematics, physics, biology, astronomy, etc This review is entirely a personal opinionWell written, accessible, informative, interesting and fun to read What a great combination to have in a bookUnlike some other science fiction related material, the focus in this book is generally not techno babble Here, the authors don t seem interested in trying to just ram some science or technology terminology together for the sake of convenience.I got the sense that the authors were making a clear distinction between the science, speculation extrapolation based on the science, and It s a TV show I recall they use that or a similar phrase a number of times I would like to give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
