Traders: I will not accept trade offers for just this item, as I do not own the base game yet. Please do not send me an offer if you aren't willing to part with the base game. Thank you!

Likes: Adds many new options to play with. New characters are always good. The Pegasus board adds some interesting features. The treachery deck can be quite fun. The cylon leader role also helps to fix those situations with a weird number of players.

Dislikes: Hard to exclude some parts once integrated.

I'll think of something witty to put here...

I think this expansion taken in entirety makes the game worse. However, you can cherry pick the good parts for an improved experience (No Cylon Leaders, no New Caprica).

The good bits:
* New characters (except Cain who is overpowered and Ellen Tigh, who is overpowered with New Caprica, but I no longer use NC) - Dee and Kat are fine though.
* Plastic basestars, though mine didn't come with any,
* Better support for 4 or 6 players (Cylon leaders are a better mechanic than the sympathiser, but still nowhere near as good as 5p),
* Fixes some problems/imbalances from the base game but introduces new ones. However you don't need to buy the expansion to implement the fixes - house rules have the same effect.

The bad bits:
* New Caprica board - a lot of the human plays are automatic (spam civilian ships).
* Victory condition - the Admiral did not need to be given even more power, especially a Cylon admiral. He should have been given less power, not more.
* Battlestar Pegasus (Cylon ships are much less of an issue now, damage tokens hardly matter, some of the Galactica locations are now obsolete). The airlock is a "nice" alternative to AQ though.
* Execution via crisis card can sometimes reveal a Cylon by semi-accident. One game I was a Cylon admiral in seat 1, and a crisis came up that executed me on the first or second turn, based on another players decision. I hadn't had time to do anything bad yet, but got outed anyway. :/
* Cylon Leaders (The best thing about BSG is figuring out who is a Cylon. Leaders removes 1 player from the equation. The agendas are far too random.)
* Too many types of skill cards. There were 10 types, now there are 26, this causes more confusion than it is worth, IMO. A lot of the new ones aren't very useful (very situational), and get in the way of finding XOs, Repairs, launch scout etc., though balance wise that may be a positive thing.

However, you can still pick out the best bits, but it's questionable if it's worth your money unless you're a big fan, especially when the base game is so good without it anyway. (I got mine second hand in a trade, Spring 2011)

The Cylon leaders add a lot to the game, especially in finally killing the silly metagaming strategy where human players try to drop down a resource in order to get the sleeper Cylon to be a sympathizer.

However, the Pegasus and Caprica boards—especially the latter—add little to the game, and detract from it in some ways.
