See topic. It would be interesting if there was a chance to regain lost Vipers and/or Raptors at least once per game.

I don't remember it ever being stated that Pegasus had a "Viper factory". Which episode was this in?

I thought you can repair Raptors right now via cards, though I'm not sure how many cards there are that allow that. I know I've done it before though.

I think the Ragnar Anchorage destination allows you to repair raptors.

Vipers can be repaired with the "Repair" engineering card, of course.

It was mentioned in "Scar".

i don't remember the episode, but it was early into Peg's initial appearance. I think maybe The Captain's Hand or Scar.

This is the info from Wikipedia:
Pegasus has vastly superior weapons, flight decks, and armor compared to Galactica. Its forward weapons battery can devastate a Cylon basestar with a single salvo. It is armed with large anti-ship KEWs, anti-fighter/missile batteries and nuclear weapons. It has much larger flight decks than Galactica, two on each side of the ship for a combined total of four flight decks. Pegasus had four fully-operational squadrons of Vipers at the time it encountered Galactica, and automation systems that allowed the production of new Vipers to help replace Galactica's losses. Unlike Galactica, Pegasus had flight simulators on board to facilitate the training of new pilots.

what they said above....

anyway, yeah, i know there is a way to get raptors back via ragnar, but, if there is a new destination deck due to the Peg expansion having the journey start up from the fleet leaving Kobol, then, Ragnar wouldn't make much sense. And, while you can REPAIR Vipers with Engineering cards, there is no way to replace lost ones. And since it seems like there will be a chances for a lot more dogfighting, thanks to stuff like the Cavil-cade ability, it would be nice to have.

I've had a suspicion that the Pegasus expansion may come with 2-4 extra vipers to give galactica a helping hand with all the extra space battles. arrrh

yeah, i guess just throwing some extra Vipers in would make more sense than a whole new game mechanic. i overanalyze too much sometimes.

haha the Pegasus should be able to build new craft, but only after flipping over a civilian ship (Cain has to scavenge the parts from somewhere after all... )

I'd like them to make better use of the Raptor minis as something besides a gambling chip.

Seeing as the viper factory *wasn't* addressed, how about this as an alternate location (to replace Main Batteries):

Return up to 2 destroyed vipers or 1 destroyed raptor to the "Reserves", then roll a die. If the result is 4 or less, draw and destroy a civilian ship.

Is anyone really having a problem with running out of vipers? In all the games that I've played, I've never really seen this be much of an issue. The pilots have a lot of cards that can help the vipers avoid being destroyed.

I've certainly seen it happen!
