I'd be up for this, but preferrably as a player.

What kind of game would be best suited though?

Battlestar Galactica
Though I'm not interested in running it, The answer to your question of what systems would be best suited, I can think of several.

Cogent would work, though it would require a lot of improvising on the GM's part.
GURPS would work, and would require no alteration.
Traveller could be used again with little to no alteration.
RIFTS particularly the Three Galaxies setting, Cylons and Human looking Cylons could be represented by Machine People. It would take some work, and obviously the magic and Psionics would have to go.
Star Wars could easily be adapted.

Ultimately I've seen no game that couldn't be run under any system with some work. How much is all that is the question.

Battlestar Galactica
Id be willing to run it but due to RL stuff, I can only post 1 to 2x a week.

Also toying with either Rifts/Palladium rules or WEG rules. This would be an Alt Universe deal where the Galactica & Pegasus were destroyed and the survivors have taken refuge at the Ragnar Anchorage - it would be a few days after the destruction of the Colonies.

Does this peak your interest?

Gonna look at both systems and see which one would be better to go with - WEG is much simpler than the Rifts/Palladium rules obviously but want to refresh myself with the WEG since its been awhile since ive played that system...Stay tuned!

Wonder if it would be best during the First or Second Cylon war?

It really boils down to preference.   I personally feel that the original series has a much more epic theme than the remake.   I'm also not sure that a system game would be necessary, you could free-form just about everything.

Re: Battlestar Galactica
I am starting a game called Battlestar Andromeda after the New Year and people are back. The game is based off of the reboot so it will be gritty and dark like the 2004 series. It's not quite ready yet as I have to finish the RTJ form and tweak a few things but I expect to open it for players to apply to in a few weeks.

Almost put in an RTJ just with what you had, Wynternight.

Looking forward to you posting the game in 2019.
