The Baseship is issue #5 from Eaglemoss' Battlestar Galactica: The Official Ships Collection, a series of collectible models from the Battlestar Galactica multiverse.

Description

From Eaglemoss' product page (United States):

The Cylon Baseship was an ominous opponent for Colonial Warriors with its range of powerful weapons, Cylon fleet and shielding capabilities. The double saucer-shaped ship of the Cylon Alliance was a warship of immense proportions, crewed by Centurion troops under the ultimate command of the Imperious leader [sic].
The ship comes complete with a 16-page[1] collector’s magazine providing an in-depth profile of the ship, exclusive behind the scenes articles, original design sketches, and an interview with the series developer, Ronald D. Moore [sic].

From Eaglemoss' product page (United Kingdom):

With its range of powerful weapons, Cylon fleet and shielding capabilities, the Cylon Baseship proved an ominous opponent for Colonial Warriors and is the next instalment [sic] in Battlestar Galactica The Official Ships Collection.
In the Seventh Millennia of recorded history, the Cylon Alliance destroyed the Twelve Worlds of Man. Key to their power was their fleet of Baseships. The double saucer-shaped Baseship of the Cylon Alliance was a warship of immense proportions, crewed by Centurion troops under the ultimate command of the Imperious Leader.
The magazine features an in-depth look at the ship, its history plus concept artist Ralph McQuarrie's stunning designs.

Errata

Erroneously interspersed within the magazine are insignia and emblems from the Re-imagined Series exclusively:

  1. Colonial seal on the back cover, in the background of page 2, and across the page spread of 8 and 9;
  2. Galactica seal on the front cover next to the ship's name;
  3. Emblems for each of the Twelve Colonies of Kobol[2] in the bottom margin of pages 8 and 14, and the upper margin of page 9;
  4. Primus' squadron emblem on the top of page 3, and the left margin of page 8.

Additionally, the magazine does not include a Ronald D. Moore interview (despite the claims on the Eaglemoss U.S. sales page for this item), as this an Original Series offering.
