    Default "Launch All Vipers"

    Hello, I'm doing a school project that is going to employ a Battlestar Galactica theme and it's going to be in Spanish. I have had zero luck figuring out how to say... "Launch all vipers!" in Spanish. All the online translators I've tried have failed the reverse input test and I end up with a phrase that makes little sense If someone could help me with this I'd really appreciate it, as it will certainly set off the project and I'm sure get a lot of laughs and appreciation from the audience P.S. if you don't watch BSG, "vipers" are fighter planes named after the snakes (I assume) so they're launched like rockets. "Launch all vipers!" is a famous phrase from the show. Thanks in advance! M.

    I would use: "Lancen a los vipers"
    Lanzar = To Launch / To Send
    Keep vipers as it has more punch, just be sure to keep the same sound to it.(VAYPERS)

    Consider this example.
    I'm driving a 64 Mustang
    Yo manejo un caballo salvaje americano modelo 1964
    this doesn't quite work, does it?

    so, I would use ...Manejo un Mustang 64

    good luck

    You might find this link to the spanish language Wiki useful.

    Perhaps ˇLancen todos los Viper! ˇDespegen todos los Viper!

    I would go with Mario Verber it is not uncommon to use the same word in Spanish that you use in English, like Mr. Verber said though remember your accent "Lancen a los Vaypers"

    Heya,

    Yes, I did my project and it went really well. The class thought it was really funny and everyone got the BSG references

    To everyone that offered insight, thanks for all the help!
