Dec 8 2008Amazing Battlestar Galactica Case Mod


There are case mods, and then there are case mods. And then there's this Battlestar Galactic case by L337 modder Boddaker.

This liquid-cooled work of art has a numerous video screens, a side window hidden by a servo-controlled door, and a slot-loading DVD drive that lets you see its disc spinning through its semi-transparent front.

Freaking amazing. You've really got to see the rest of the pictures and video after the jump to fully appreciate the case. Boddaker clearly has some wicked modding skills. AND modeling skills. Dude can really strut his stuff on the catwalk like nobody's business. In all seriousness though, I'm too sexy for my shirt.

Hit it for the rest of the amazingosity.








Battlestar Galactica PC, a masterpiece with stunning attention to detail [dvice]

Thanks to Stirling, who once called a Cylon's mother a robotic whore and lived to tell about it.

shit! how wonderful... where's the rest of the computer?

I mean.. last time they had crap like this they had a whole geek-desk

Seriously, casemods? That is so 90's....

damn.. dats with da sickness


But f***ing sick!!!

I just said "buttf***ing", huh huh

This is an obvious photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like the scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max lost his job but continued leaving the house every morning so Baja wouldn't find out.

That is an amazing computer, but to the above comment. It's for me to win a contest. And I need help from you guys.

This would be cooler if it was STAR WARS. Even Star Trek has a bigger following. I'd even bet there are more FireFly fans.

But Battlestar Galactica? Come on!

Really? Really?

Got Daaaayyyyum!!!!

I like that!

Way to show off, dude. I'm jealous. Although I hand-crafted my case to look like The Enterprise, looks pretty decent, I tell ya.

Next thing you see a case-mod like this, its gonna have hydraulics on the base and shoots fire when you accidentally typed the WRONG password. That mother is tight!

@9 I know what you're trying to do, but I don't think it's going to work.


I'd tap that... With my dick! Not my fingers, that's bullshit!

Oh, and I have a new link on my name.

damn thats gay as balls

Nerd junk.

Ok. first off, awesome, but yes, old.

i'm a firefly fan. but bsg has MANY MORE fans by far than firefly does.

the acting in bsg is better than any in star trek, star wars, OR firefly, as far as i'm concerned. And it also deals with issues just as important as star trek did. and without aliens.

and i'd also like to just state for the record that the vipers are a lot more awesome than anything george lucas showed me in the prequels.

BSG is a great show. If you are on the fence about it, you should watch it from the beginning.


That is sweet....I wonder if he has ever seen a vagina.

Kudos Boddaker. Nice work.

Wow, nicely done.


Just kidding, that's friggen awesome.

For a case like that, I'd show him MY vagina...

Just kidding, maybe one boob.

Ah! Plot twist time!

The computer case is actually a Cylon!

#15, I've only seen a few episodes of BSG, but the acting wasn't any better than the acting in Firefly. As far as I'm concerned, Firefly is what all space oriented adventure shows should aspire to. Well, Firefly and Cowboy Bebop, but the latter is like comparing apples to oranges.

The guy who made this has never felt a breast. That is all.

The case is awesome and so is the show. Everyone accusing the person that made it of never feeling up a boob or seeing a vagina should stop looking at their mom and dad's porn videos and do something productive with their lives... Like making a bad-ass BSG case mod. lol

Total Nerdgasm.

I really don't understand the apathy towards the person who did this case. I am not lying when I say that my wife and I love BSG. I think the case is amazing and she is totally down with anything that is like this. I just think that these individuals that say these things are just like the person that was annoying the south park kids when they did the World of Warcraft episode. Not everyone who is a geek is a virgin or look like they would stand out at a Star Trek convention in a horrible way.

I love BSG because I was a kid when it was initially done & I think they have done a remarkable job on the new series. As far as I know Edward James Olmos said that he would never do a science fiction movie again after he was in Blade Runner? Supposedly it was because he thought science fiction movies didn't do justice to the medium they should. He is one of the best and brightest actors in America and I was floored when I heard he was going to be in the new version of BSG. When someone like him puts his stamp of approval on something (especially a science fiction project) it has to have some merit. The new BSG even makes the game of Triad look good compared to the old series.

Anyhow, quit posting that just because someone is a geek they are "gay" or "haven't played with a boobie". Just because you weren't breast-fed don't take the problems you have out on others just because they do something creative. I always have noticed that these same individuals have probably never even read a sci-fi book even though they act like they are the authority on anything science fiction. And when I mean a science fiction book, I mean something written by Isaac Asimov, William Gibson or Frank Herbert. These people probably think a Harry Potter book is science fiction. Have a little solidarity and quit being so damn ignorant.

I want to buy that!

how much!

that is absolutly the coolest thing i have ever seen

or if u rnt selling... hows about posting blueprints?


This is an obvious photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This looks exactly like the Apple II + we used to have..I wonder how many cans of Krylon spray paint they used, and how long the buzz lasted?

how sad

If you think it's fake, why don't you go through every page of his worklog that he posted on

There's also his website,

I know Boddaker very well from TBCS, for all of you saying its a fake Checkout:

and for all you sad people that think because someone has the vision and skill to craft something like this is a sad old gay virgin need to look in the mirror a bit harder and think about it..

Maybe you should try reading some real sci-fi books by H.G Wells for example, or watch films like Metropolis, They are what started modern Sci-fi
