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.

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. They are also sufficiently armored to withstand multiple nuclear blasts without being crippled. 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.
