It's pretty much a certainty.

I suspect at least one big box expansion to cover the rest of the series. I can then see some small box expansions to cover specific story arcs not fully covered already - such as Razor.

The poor design of Pegasus suggests a third expansion is going to happen. While I can't think of any off the top of my head, there were comments implying another expansion was on its way AND would expand the effects of the expansion (I believe they have some special plans for the effects of Cylon Leaders).

That being said, the disappointment of Pegasus will leave many casual gamers hesitant on buying another expansion. With luck Corey and Fantasy Flight will make sure this expansion is balanced and not rushed to be printed too much.

In what way is Pegasus poorly designed? It has certainly revived BSG for my gaming group.

We don't tend to use New Caprica when we play BSG. Theoretically, I like it -- I like that the game has an endgame -- but in practice, it just adds too much time.

Other than that, though, I think Pegasus is a great expansion. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Most reviews will say Pegasus broke the system or at least flame it in a few directions. This is just personal opinion (and you can read my review on here for the big picture - which had quite a long number of replies making it a notable debate) but this is what it did for me:

PRO
- Treachery Cards
- Plastic Basestars
- New Crisis Cards


CONS
- Pegasus Board (very OP locations - Cylons get nothing to balance it)
- Executions (removed MUCH secrecy which made the original great)
- Cylon Leaders (can be left alone - leaving that player removed)
- OP Admiral Cain (Adama and Saul are made quite redundant with her)
- New Caprica (nice but, as my friends say, its a mini game to be played once the humans have won the original game - i.e.: made the needed distance and made their final jump --> to New Caprica)


The next expansion will likely fix much of these (such as making Executions more penalizing - I don't believe anyone has had a game where the Humans have lost from not having enough character sheets available from mass executions --> suggesting the next expansion WILL kill characters off a lot faster). Just wait and lets see
