This game is free, and was just released. Strangely no one here has posted it from what I can tell. I put through a file host request to get it unmetered.
Its a 1.3gb download, built on the freespace 2 engine with some upgrades I believe. Even though its fan made, it probably is the best Battlestar Galactica game ever made.

- Due to the size of the Windows installer it may take a long time for the installer to actually start. This may last several minutes (up to five minutes in some instances). There are reports that virus checkers may extend this delay so you may wish to turn them off during the installation process. - This problem hasn't been reported yet for Mac but might exist there too. - Multiplayer is currently very much in beta. Also, in order to enhance the eventual multiplayer experience, the team decided not to finalise the balance between ships. Feedback from players is very welcome. The true multiplayer experience will be available in the next release. Till then, if you wish to experiment, here's how to get started. - Some Windows users are reporting issues with joystick detection in-game. Going to Control Panel -> Game Controllers and selecting "Advanced" then setting your controller as the preferred device, has been reported to fix this.
If this is in the wrong board, feel free to move it, I wasn't sure where to post... there wasn't a board for fan made space combat games...
