The Basestar is a capital ship for the Cylon faction. There are currently only two Basestars in the Veil Sector, one serving as the main hub in 242 Apollid and the other protecting the reclaimed base in 47 Tartalon.
The Basestar in 47 Tartalon may be rented at a cost of between 5,000 to 10,000 Merits "according on galaxy control", for a duration of 1 hour or until it is destroyed. This can be done by talking to Number One in the Basestar in 242 Apollid.
Note that in a particular server, only one player can rent the basestar at a time. Thus, it highly recommended that a player renting out the Basestar to consider ask other players for support.
The Basestar is the ultimate Cylon weapon. Vastly out-powering any line and matched in strength only by the surviving Battlestars.
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 easier engage and destroy fleets of small ships.
The Basestar is pre-installed with the following systems:
