The browser-based massively multiplayer online game based on the hit sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica promises what NBC and developer Bigpoint to include "tactical space combat and adventure". The game will initially launch exclusively on SyFy's website for a 30 day period this fall, before being available elsewhere.

Players will be able to choose to play as either the humans, led by Admiral Adama, or the Cylons, and the game will be a blend of tactical space combat, exploration, and mission-based gameplay. According to the press release, Battlestar Galactica Online will feature 3D graphics in your browser. Images and sounds from the TV show will be integrated into the game.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
