The Best Chiefless Episode?

Dante once described Smokey and the Bandit III as “the best Burt-less movie ever made.” Might we describe A Measure of Salvation as the best “Chief-less” BSG episode?

Kidding aside — where’s Aaron Mr. Douglas? I know he doesn’t need to appear in every episode (and I realize that he did show up briefly in the hangar recently), but I just can’t get enough of the Chief. Doesn’t he seem like the kind of character you’d actually hang out with? The kind that’d go to bat for you — even if it made no sense to do so — just because he’s loyal to his friends?

What about Cally? And little Nick? I hope they’re doing well.

And (on an almost completely opposite tack), where’s Starbuck? Assuming the above disclaimers still apply, isn’t Starbuck just about the center of the BSG universe? Somehow when she’s not involved things just seem more plain.

Can’t wait for next Friday…

    And what about Dean Stockwell? And Tigh?

    Oh well, there was a lot of people missing in this episode…

    Chief was in the episode, on deck, directing everyone when the Glactica jumped in to infect the Cylons. Not much of a speaking role, but not chief-less at all.

    You gotta love the Chief. I wonder what his and Calli’s working relationship is like now. (Or is she staying with little Nicky?)

    Speaking of Starbuck, I guess she get in Lee’s graces again, considering she was magically back in a Viper.

  5. Lt. Slingshot says:

    I hadn’t thought of it until I read Pike’s post but any chance it’s just a coincidence that the writers chose the name Nick for Nicki Clyne’s baby boy?

  6. Pike says:

    LT, RDM said that the actors came up with the name, and he thought that it was an interesting choice, too.

  7. The 13th Cylon says:

    Perhaps it was because his dad looked like St. Nick in training with that beard of his for a while.
