As in the original series, a battlestar serves primarily as a starfighter carrier.  The ship also has [[nuclear weapon|nuclear missiles]] (used extremely rarely) and [[kinetic energy weapon]] main batteries for directly engaging Cylon capital ships.  A battlestar is also capable of producing an obscene amount of [[point defense]] fire, creating a "flak wall" that protects the ship.

Battlestars in the new series have FTL engines capable of jumping light years in a few seconds.
  
 
Two classes of battlestars are given detail in Neo ''Battlestar Galactica'': the unnamed class of the ''Galactica'', and the ''Mercury''-class, such as the ''Pegasus''.  ''Galactica'' is 1438.64 meters long with 14 main KEW batteries, while the ''Mercury''-class is 1789.8 meters long with 4 stationary frontal KEW batteries and 30 side KEW turret batteries, along with a compliment of 200 Viper Mark VII fighters.
