Favorite Sci-Fi Vehicles: Colonial Viper


Vehicle: Colonial Viper Mark II
Television Series: Battlestar Galactica (1978-79, 1980)

As much as I like the updated vipers in BSG, the Mark II version from ┬áthe original television series will always be first in my heart. Apparently, I’m a sucker for triangular designs, and this is a great one. Even the launch tubes for the spacecraft are the same shape. Combined with those great pharaonic helmets, viper pilots certainly battle in style.
