Humans don’t make great pets — andneither did the Cylon. However if you were to ever to try and convince a human to feel a certain way when they started off dead set against it, Starbuck would be the last person you should pick.
Still, it’s interesting that they Cylon seem to be fixated on her so much. There are many possible reasons why I could imagine:She is a great warrior of the Human race. She is strong of mind and spirit. She is also crafty in a way that confounds the Cylon time and time again. Yet when they have her in their clutches, they try to bend her to their will with the whole Three’s Company thing down in the detention area.
This demonstrates either a total lack of understanding about what makes her tick –or perhaps they just don’t know how to deal with someone wired the way Starbuck is and are trying to provoke certain responses to get their bearings on the road to frak her mind. What will be telling is how she reacts when she climbs (as we all hope she does) back in the cockpit.
