A Base Star is the name of the Cylon ship that carries Cylon fighters and troops in the 1978 Battlestar Galactica. Ralph McQuarrie, the legendary illustrator who worked on Star Wars, designed the look of the Base Stars. He began with a typical flying saucer shape, and doubled it to create the iconic look.

The double-saucer Base Star can be seen in a museum in the reimagined 2003 series as well.
