If the world as you knew it was destroyed, how far would you go to get it back?
The Cylons have returned to the Twelve Colonies after a forty-year absence. Bent on revenge, they unleash nuclear weapons powerful enough to destroy human civilization... and nearly succeed. The only survivors of the Cylon assault are a ragtag fleet of civilian ships and the last remaining Colonial Battlestar: Galactica.
As Commander of Galactica, you must lead the civilian fleet through uncharted space in search of a new home, while defending it from relentless Cylon attacks. These machines never sleep; letting your guard down for even a moment will cause not only your downfall, but also that of the entire human race.
In Battlestar Galactica: Squadrons™, you will:
- BATTLE waves of Cylons intent on your destruction.
- CONSTRUCT a wide variety of Colonial combat ships from blueprints found on Galactica.
- TRANSFORM your ships into high-performance fighting machines with scavenged technology.
- ESCAPE an overwhelming Cylon onslaught by executing a faster-than-light JUMP!
- DEFEND the civilian population that depends on you for protection.
- And above all, SURVIVE long enough to continue the search for planet Earth, humanity's new home.

Ratings and Reviews
While the game is fun, and a entertaining way to kill some time. It has several annoying points. First the two items you need the most "Generic Cylon tech" and "Cubits" are the least things you earn. Second when you are in "Pegasus Tournament " mode you are outgunned almost every match up, and about one in seven rounds you choose an opponent it gives you a different group, not the one you picked. And last but not least it will tell you lost server connection and the server is working fine or just run you back out to your desktop when you are almost logged in. If they fixed these issues the game would be great.
Fun game. But PVP is atrocious. I'm still exactly where I am rank wise from when I started the game. All the PVP versus options are overpowered. And sometimes when you do find a balanced squad to go against, the squad you fight isn't the same one that you expected to battle. I would give it 5 stars, but I can't do so until the PVP is fixed.
PVP still horrible. Dropped my rating down to one star. Not only is it unbalanced, but the squad you select to fight is often not the squad you actually fight. I chose to fight a squad of 2 support raptors and one Viper Mk 7, but I ended up fighting 2 high ranking Zambis and a viper Mk 7. I'm lower on the leaderboard now than I was when I started the game (with 1 star ships).
Promising but ultimately a huge waste of time
The game looks good and has some interesting qualities but the support is practically non-existent. And for a game that still seems to function like a beta (continual crashes, horribly matched PVP, loss of accounts), one would think Ludia would be interested in helping, and/or keeping their players around. Instead they simply don't respond, via email or on FB. It's like they've just buried their heads in the cylon sand.
I managed to get one good reply from them, and the rest of my requests/inquiries were ignored. Perhaps it's because they have no help to offer, which means yer pretty much on your own.
Keep that in mind, after you've spent a couple months grinding away, building up a decent fleet, only to be unable to log into your account one day.
No help will be available and your cries will fall on deaf ears, because this company just doesn't seem to care. Perhaps their other games are more important.
