Short of spooling up the FTL’s and jumping, or having the firepower to take out an entire Cylon Baseship, I think this tricked out tower can do everything the actual Battlestar Galactica could do on the show.
Behind the BSG logo on the front is a side-loading optical DVD drive, visible even when spinning and beautifully lit from within with some crafty LED’s. The case also sports a 10″ LCD screen on one side, 3x 2.5″ LCD’s on the front, and an opening on another side that shows off the gorgeous interior like a sideways garage door.
The top is a scaled down version of the landing strip with appropriately lit details (see video after the jump). I really couldn’t admire the craftsmanship any more than I already have, it’s simply brilliant. Even if you thought Starbuck was just a place to get coffee (I’m looking at you, Mom) you can understand why this PC case mode is truly epic.
Anyway, I think I’ll just save a year’s worth of paychecks to have one of my own built. Then I’ll call Athena/Boomer and say “Hey, in case you needed somewhere to park your Raptor…”
The specs and gallery of more images can be found after the jump.
Also included are 2 videos of the DVD drive and sliding bay doors.
