- Watching the Battlestar Galactica marathon on Scifi, what was your
favorite episode, if you had one? Why?
Looking back, i think the one with Starbuck's Father, played by Fred
Astaire, was the best. Not very action oriented, but a good storyline.
Questions or comments?

i thought it was pretty dire and i tended to nitpick some of the
for instance i couldnt figure out why they didnt just arm the rest of
the ships and if the point of it all was to find Earth and get help
why didny they stop at that Earth like planet they found that already
There were some episodes though that were great and i really enjoyed
the pilot film
- As space opera, it hit its mark . . . as far as the science fiction
elements, it had alot to be desired. If would be a good take on
things if they took some of David Drake or David Weber's military
scifi and tried to mix that in.
Now that i think about it, the fleet/people were living under martial
law, dictated by the Council they had on there, but not really,
because they were always in trouble. You would think that eventually,
there would be some safe sector of space in which they could refit
and rebuild, not necessarily Earth. I can't believe every parsec of
space was controlled by the Cylons. THey were bound to run into
people who wouldn't like the Cylons intruding into their space, like
in Star Trek, who has the Romulans, Klingons, Cadassians, Ferengi,
etc constantly causing problems.
They never gave an explanation, really, as to why they were being
hounded and chased beyond the fact they were organic and the Cylons
