Behold, the glories of the Internet: Someone has hacked a 3D graphics engine (from the X-wing vs. Tie Fighter line, by the looks of it) and put together this dandy little machinima video of a fleet of classic Battlestar Galactica vipers and battlestars going toe-to-toe with some Star Wars tie fighters and Imperial star destroyers. While the conflict doesn't actually settle which franchise is cooler or who would necessarily win such a battle (for my money, it depends on the commanders involved; Thrawn versus Cain would be route in favor of the Empire, whilst Piett versus Adama means the Colonials win in a shutout), the eye-candy is worth the price of admission. Enjoy.
