Battlestar Galactica Online open beta kicks off in just a few days

In the realm of major sci-fi or fantasy franchises, it’s increasingly likely that each one will get its own MMO in turn. Just on the horizon is BigPoint’s free-to-play and browser-based Battlestar Galactica Online, and for those curious to give it a spin, you’ll get your chance starting February 8 at the latest. Word was just recently posted on the game’s official message board along with some stipulations on language settings and word for current closed-beta players. At best it could be a nice little time-killing space combat game, and at worst a closed tab, right?
