Share Your Answers To BSG’s “Small Questions”

Since we decided to push our “big questions” podcast back closer to the Razor release, we spent some of our time in the last podcast instead discussing some of the “small questions.” We took a stab at answering them in the ‘cast, but truthfully your answers are as good as ours.

If you have a minute, feel free to share your answers — or give us craaaap about ours — in comments here.

The questions:

  • If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
  • If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
  • What job would you like to have in the fleet?
  • Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
  • Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
  • Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
  • What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
  • If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

I can’t wait to hear your answers.

    1) Ship of my own- Fat Lee… Really, though, it’s the funniest thing ever on BSG. I still laugh at the awfulness of that storyline.

    2) Ship to live on- Galactica. It’ll make it to Earth, even if all the others blow up. They’re not going to switch the name of the show to “Astral Queen”.

    3) Job- work at Joe’s Bar.

    4) I’d really be- the guy who cuts the corners on all the papers… that is until the shortage.

    5) Stuck on a planet- I want Racetrack. Really, I’d be wasting my time explaining why.

    6) Baltar or Starbuck- Neither! Baltar’s evil(ish) and Starbuck’s dead(ish).

    7) BSG Red Shirt- It’s a toss up. Any of Ander’s minions on New or Old Caprica or any of Zarek’s before and during Kobol.

    8) Box- Helo. Has he ever done anything to prove that he deserves algae? “No algae for you!”

  3. Timbuck says:

    1) Ship to have: I too bow to Sean’s choice and why! I originally said Raptor so I’m sticking w it. Not as dangerous as a Viper but still cool. It has FTL and you could drive your friends around. Plus, you can have sex in a Raptor.

    2) Ship to live on: The Galactica. Safest and best armed. The Rising Star/Cloud Nine would be more fun but it could be easily picked off by a nuke or kamikaze.

    3) Job? Viper pilot too dangerous and I could never have those uber-abilities. Maybe a CIC/bridge officer like Gaeta. Hopefully my console wouldnt explode.

    4) person you would actually be: Mid range officer like Bridge guy above. I would spar w Starbuck since I used to take karate and aggressive chicks are a turn on.

    5) character w you if stuck on a planet: tough one! Starbuck is way practical but has those manic crazy streaks. Chief is the best option. Plus he’s a cool dude. Anders is my very close 2nd choice. Plus, he would attract hotties and I could get his throwbacks.

    6) Would I have a relationship w Starbuck? I would try. I’m psycho-chick magnet. [If I was a chick I would go for Baltar, but only season 1 Baltar. He was cool back then.]

    7) BSG’s redshirt: the Viper pilots who never have speaking roles.

    8) whom to box? (human) Ellen Tighe. She’s so destructive to Tighe! She’s small “e” evil sometimes. (Cylon) I would say Leoben if I was in their world but not as a fan of the show. Simon should be boxed for sheer creepiness!

    9) Not on the list but in the podcast-who’a ass would I like to kick? Hadrian. The playing God thing was soooo annoying. Power corrupts. [Or whiney/Fat Lee in season 3].

  4. Grand Puba says:

    1) If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    – Pegasus. It kicked ass. Why was it sacrificed for an obsolete model?

    2) What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    – Captain of the Pegasus. I am sure I would have kept the ship intact during Exodus.

    3) Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    – Chef aboard Galactica.
    “Today’s menu.
    Hors D’oeuvres will be Sautéed Algae with Caramelised Algae.
    The Soup course will be an Algae Bisque

    The Main Course will be Roast Algae des Landes with algae jus and dauphin of algae.

    The Vegetables of the Day will be fried algae with algae relish and mashed creamed algae.

    The Desert will be Wild Algae Jelly with an algae syllabub.

    Todays Specials
    Saddle of Algae with creamed algae and glazed summer algae jullienne,

    Deep-fried Algae with minted algae purée, deep fried algae slices and algae sauce or

    Poached Organic Algae with a hollandaise algae sauce.

    Disadvantages would be the average life expectancy of a chef with a history of airlocking people they consider to be collaborators.

    Tigh – “Airlock the b*****d. I’m not eating any more of his Craaaaaaaaap!”

    4) Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    – Racetrack hmmmm Racetrack. she also is very good at finding food supplies that aren’t algae, weapons and maybe a ride home.

    5) Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    – They are both out of their gourds. I would prefer Racetrack or Sharon or both?.

    6) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    – As stated previously the Marines. There seem to be an awful lot of them for a obselete battlestar even counting transfers from Pegasus.

    7) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    – Tory Foster. The way she walks. talks , looks and acts make me want to accidently discharge a weapon in her general direction. I am so very pleased she has turned out to be a Cylon. Tory Foster the airlock awaits.

  5. Altair IV says:

    1) Ship of my own- RISING STAR. I like the name.

    2) Ship to live on- MAJAHUAL. It’s a mining ship. My guess is that deep space mining ships would have comfortable crew quarters and amenities as they would have been designed for long duration missions. A lot more fun than say an interplanetary commuter ship.

    3) Job- I think I’d like to be either an astronomer or other space scientist examining data on planets surveyed along the way, OR a marine assigned to ground combat operations. I wouldn’t like strong arming the civilians in the Fleet role the marines seem to get stuck with, but I’d have no problems blasting toasters on some forest planet. (This assumes they wouldn’t get me first!)

    4) I’d really be- a technician keeping the whole thing running. That’s what I do in this universe and it can be interesting.

    5) Stuck on a planet- Sharon (a.k.a. Athena). Every time I see her I just drool uncontrollably. She may be a robot and have a hidden agenda and just might kill me at any time, but so what, I’ve dated worse.

    6) Baltar or Starbuck- Depends on what you mean by ‘relationship’. As far as romance etc. I could only imagine at most only brief fling with Starbuck. Still I think she and I could be friends. She strikes me as someone who rates personal loyalty highly. So do I. I’d be prepared to back her up knowing she’d do the same for me. Still I would have a hard time emotionally trying to buck the system the way she does without blinking. I think I could work with Baltar. He’s arrogant, egotistical, intelligent and completely untrustworthy. I’ve had bosses who are worse.

    7) BSG Red Shirt- Marines seem to get bumped off pretty easily. Same with those Old Caprica survivalists. And of course there are Cylon Red Shirts too, the “Red Eyes” and toasters (or do I repeat myself).

    8) Box- Easy. Tory Forster. I just hate them Federalist Party types!

  6. Bugs says:

    As a scientist I’d want to work with Baltar. I want my own head-Six too, it must come with the job.

  7. Moe says:

    1) Ship to have: The cargo ship that has all the cigarettes. Protected at all costs by the rest of the nicotine dependent fleet. Would be the Bill Gates of the RTF.

    2) Ship to live on: Colonial one. Love that Pan-Am, Air Force One aesthetic. I’ve gotten to fly first class a few times. The only way to go.

    3) Job? Anything that had a window. Please keep me off the Tyllium ship! Actually when you think about it there would be massive unemployment while the fleet was in space. People would be begging to deliver laundry just to have something to do.

    4) person you would actually be: Laundry delivery person it is! Get to stretch your legs talk to everybody. Stop by the galley to snag an algaeburger between stops. Whats not to like?

    5) character with you if stuck on a planet: Call me shallow – Dee. (At least she is a com expert and could call for help)

    6) Would I have a relationship w Starbuck / Baltar? I’ll pass thank you very much.

    7) BSG’s redshirt: That analytics site had red shirts accounting for 73% of STTOS deaths. Only close equivalent nameless civilians.

    8) Who would I box? Lee. He just serves no purpose that is not better filled by someone else. Leader – Dad, Fighter Jock – Starbuck, Conscience -Helo, etc. I think they are keeping him around to be Aaron to Adama’s Moses.

    Cheers

  8. The Fair Melissa says:

    Now, I haven’t yet listened to the podcast, but here are my answers (there are no small answers, just small questions)……

    1) Ship to have? My very own ship? I would have to go with a Viper. Because it’s sleek, it’s fast and it can make some pretty impressive moves.

    2) Ship to live on? Definitely Cloud Nine. I’m all for alternate realities, especially the ones that aren’t drug induced. Not so much a fan of the whole getting nuked by Gina part, but hey, life is life.

    3) Job I’d like to have? Viper pilot. I think I would enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with taking out toasters. If that doesn’t work, I’ll be the bartender in Grand Puba’s restaurant. Today’s special – Algae smoothies! Also, don’t forget to join us for happy hour. It’s Ladies Night – no cover for the real ones and the Head Sixes. $3 Algaetinis (algae and ambrosia with an algae garnish).

    4) What job would I honestly have? I’d be disabled and living on a government pension. I hate heights. No? Fine. I’d be like the poor chief from Pegasus – some technologically challenged civilian put in charge of fixing the dradis. Yes, that’s why it never works properly.

    5) Character I’d like to be stuck with on a planet? That’s a tough one. My first choice would be Anders, but he doesn’t strike me as the smartest dude in the room. However, if I could get an entire Anders series, then that would be tolerable.

    6) Would I have a relationship with Starbuck or Baltar? I think Starbuck would be fun to hang out with – get drunk, smoke cigars – but Baltar? No. He’s too full of himself as a scientist and as a “human”. I would comment more, but we do have young eyes that read these posts. Let’s just say that I think his vanity would get in the way of a good time.

    7) Equivalent of the red shirt? I’d have to go with the civilians (I know that really doesn’t count) but for a race that is staring down the barrel of extinction, they do get a little footloose and fancy free with the killing. Can’t we all just get along?

    8) Who would I box? Well, it certainly wouldn’t be D’Anna – what a breath of fresh air she was – I like my power hungry cylons this side of crazy. I’d box Cally. So not a fan of her character.

  9. Shaymus22 says:

    1) Spinny circle wheel ship!
    2) Spinny circle wheel ship!!
    3) Viper pilot
    4) Janitor
    5) Starbuck
    6) Who hasn’t? (“Oooooo, burn!”) 😛
    7) Someone who is too innocent
    8) Probably Brother Cavil, since with him out of the way, the fleet’s chance of survival will skyrocket 🙂

  10. Dave says:

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose? – Galactica – why the hell not>>> the frakker has Vipers adn junk

    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on? Rising Star i think

    What job would you like to have in the fleet? Military liasion to the President (tho I think Adama may have that locked down)

    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be? A reporter probably

    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet? Sharon – hot and good in a fight (providing she doesnt go all Cylon on me…)

    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar? Starbuck – hot

    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?” Marines (helmets are a dad giveaway)

    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose? thats tough, cuz I like them all……maybe, Brother Cavil

  11. Dh71 says:

    1. Galactica, I love that ship.
    2. Live on? Cloud nine; least likely to go stir crazy (i.e. most like home)
    3. Executive Officer on Galactica
    4. Medic lacky for Doc Coddle
    5. Stuck ohn a planet? The Chief
    6. Are you kidding? No contest, Starbuck!
    7. Marines or deckhands, both will do.
    8. Who to box…hmmm, Kat, never could stand her attitude. Well, I guess they kind of boxed her anyway…

  12. DocP says:

    1) If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    Doesn’t really matter so long as I can put go faster stripes on it.

    2)If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    The one with all the crazy baltar women…I gotta think at least one of getting pretty desperate (bow chicka bow wow)

    3) What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Whoever sells Tighs his alcohol, he’s seriously gotta be seriously well off by now.

    4) Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    I’m pretty sure Id have been jetted off the ship within the first couple of days.

    5) Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    If I pick one of the cylon women can I have 1000 of them since they count as one character?

    6) Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    Baltar- He is seriously too awesome, If I didnt get jettisoned my character would definitly be one that follows him around like a puppy dog.

    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Mauve?

    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Starbuck – we get it, your an angry angry person, don’t take it out on us.

  13. Pike says:

    1) Any ship to have? Raider. Boomer doing her auto-show girl routine sold me. Plus, it’s not at all clear if the Heavy Raiders have any intelligence at all.

    2) Ship to live on? Not Colonial One. The actors hate that set, it must be hell to live there. Probably Cloud Nine.

    3) Job I’d want? Owner of Joe’s

    4) Job I’d end up with? Dishwasher at Joe’s

    5) Character to be stuck with? Athena. She’d keep my sorry ass alive. The fact that she’d fall in love with me inside of fifteen minutes is just gravy.

    6) Relationship with Kara or Gaius? I love watching her, but IRL I’d avoid Starbuck like the plague. Baltar is interesting enough, especially late in season three, that I’d probably hang out with him for a while.

    7) BSG Red Shirts? Nuggets and Marines. The latter are more typical of Red Shirts, in that they usually don’t get much speaking time before they off it.

    8.) Character to box? Box cylon style? Ellen if she was still around, Cavil if she wasn’t.
    Box “take off the dog tags” style? Dee. (This one’s for Billy, bitch!)

  14. Max Peck says:

    * If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    Pegasus

    * If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    Any Babestar (sp) with the naked Sharon’s doing tai chi…nuf said.

    * What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Viper pilot… Sean had it right…good at it or not, you’re cool…

    * Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    underling in CiC…(previous life experience…)

    * Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    Have I yet mentioned naked Tai Chi Sharon ? (Ferris Beuhler style
    ” Ohh Yeah…”

    * Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Isn’t that were Hotdog got his rash? No thanks on both counts…

    * What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Third row ready room Viper pilot of the week… (Sean looking at you now…)

    * If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Toss up between “Butterfingers” Gaita or Dee… only so I can move up to their positions in CiC…

  15. Leon Kensington says:

    1) Galactica- What is the show called?

    2) Galactica- Again, what is the show called?

    3) Marine- They never see any action after Eye of Jupriter.

    4) Season 1 Lee- He is the closest to how I am.

    5) Anders- He survived HOW many days on Caprica and New Craprica

    6) Starbuck- Hot, and not Baltar.

    7) Civies- They are always the ones that are dying, even in an episode with no death, the popclock goes down. They’re the frackin red shirts.

    8a) Dee- After killing Billy, she deserves it!

    8b) Tori- Reasons: 1) Ended up getting Baltar elected
    2) She doesn’t deserve Anders
    3) She’s Tori!

  16. Nick says:

    1) Ship to have – Pegasus. I’m sorry to say it, Pegasus is more badass than Galactica.
    2) Ship to live on – Pegasus
    3) Job i’d want- Viper Pilot
    4) Job i’d have – One technicians on Galactica’s CIC
    5) Character to be stuck with – Starbuck. She can kick butt, take a beating, has mad survival skills, and can commandeer anything that flies.
    6) Relationships – Baltar: HELL NO! Starbuck: Romantic? Nope. As a friend? Absolutely! Starbuck hurts her lovers but lays it all on the line for her friends.
    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?” – The original 7 cylons. Which one of them hasn’t been killed at least half a dozen times?
    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Baltar. Though I would much rather see him airlocked than boxed. The more he gets beat up an tortured the more women seem to flock to his bed.

  17. The Alpaca Herder says:

    I’ve only gotten a third of the way through the podcast so far, so following the lead of others:

    * If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    A raptor that routinely landed on Galactica.

    * If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    Not sure.

    * What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Galactica’s BOFH (the initialism can be found on Wikipedia)

    * Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    The Pimply-Faced Youth (“PFY”) to Lt. Dualla who would otherwise be Galactica’s BOFH

    * Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    Seelix. She can use weapons, can fix things, has some medical background, and is realistically attractive looking.

    * Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Nope.

    * What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Nuggets.

    * If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Doral. He’s probably the biggest loose cannon among the Significant Seven.

  18. Phil says:

    * If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    Viper

    * If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    The hoola-hoop looking ship. I don’t know what it is but its gotta be cool.

    * What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Viper pilot.

    * Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    Dradis operator on a raptor. Who am I fooling, I’d be an over-educated civilian Shanghaied into service on the refining ship.

    * Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    Athena…for her survival skills…

    * Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Nope, more issues than National Geographic there.

    * What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    There are no Red Shirts, unlike ST almost anybody can bite it at any moment.

    * If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Already taken care of: Boxey.

  19. Gray says:

    1) Pegasus. The crew may not be very popular, but darn it if it wasn’t a nice ship.

    2) See above. State of the art, with guns. Comfort and security.

    3) Who would I be? Probably a miner on the tyllium ship. But if we’re keeping it limited to main characters, I’d probably be a Tigh or a less badass version of Starbuck in that I’m kind of a loose cannon until the hammer falls and then I pull it together pretty well. Then, crisis averted, it’s time for a nightcap.

    4) Starbuck or Lee. Or both together. They seem to be able to get out of just about anything. And occasionally, they manage to pull other people out with them. However, if it wasn’t a particularly dangerous planet…a beach, say. I’d take Anders.

    5)I would have a relationship of the “you are personally responsible for my safety, don’t frak me over” variety with Starbuck. I’m wouldn’t be gettin’ involved in any way with Baltar.

    6) Not sure

    7) I’d box Dee, ca. her I -love- Apollo- phase.

  20. Audra says:

    Pike said: Box “take off the dog tags” style? Dee. (This one’s for Billy, bitch!)

    LOL!

    and Grand Puba and Melissa – I love your new food group…lol

  21. Ty-The-Giant says:

    1)If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    Colonial One… nice big ship, lots of windows, cargo bay, jump drive, and it can land on a planet without to much touble.

    2) If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    Again, Colonial One… But I would like to check out the ship with the spinny part.

    3) What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Viper pilot, I always wanted to be a fighter pilot when I was a kid.

    4) Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    6’4 and blind as a bat… I am probably to big I to fit into a viper, and I don’t have the eyesight for it. Which is also the reason why I didn’t join the Air Force.

    I would probably be the lawyer they hired to go after Baltar. The one who got the job because all of the other lawyers in the fleet where defending Baltar or dead. My lawyering skills, and my own moral relativism have not developed to Romo Lampkin’s level. At least not yet.

    5) Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    Papa dama, entire crew of Galactica would move heaven and earth to get him back. If I was with the chief, I may have to wait.

    6) Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Baltar? no way. Starbuck, I’m kind of married to her right now.. minus the raging alcoholism and the sleeping around (wait? what else is there?). I feel for Anders, but I can’t say I would have done anything different. Like him, I made my choice.

    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Marines. In the valley of darkness, both marines get shot in the head, and everyone else walks away without a scratch, even Jammer? The same thing on Cloud nine… does that seem right to you?

    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Brother Kavel is gross and creepy. Maybe it is a part of his job discription… But I think that is why he took the job. He likes to hurt folk… power, control… pain.

    He isn’t just following orders. But I wouldn’t want to box him. I like the character.

    I’d box Lee.

    -Ty the Giant

  22. Ty-The-Giant says:

    Pike–

    I almost fell out of my chair…

    “Boomer doing her auto-show girl routine” … “Athena”… “This one’s for Billy, bitch!”

    Genius!

  23. Audra says:

    Ty-The-Giant said: “Brother Kavel is gross and creepy.”

    SEE! I TOLD you he was gross! Nobody in the podcast wanted to back me up on that. hehe

  24. Radio Picon says:

    1. If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    Galactica, I don’t really know the others, now since Cloud 9 is gone.

    2. If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    again, Galactica, who can beat an office like Adama’s?

    3. What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    maybe a communications officer

    4. Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    ugh, Gaeta (hides head in shame)

    5. Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    Number 6! I think it is very advantageous to be stuck on a planet with a supersmart machine with a heart.

    6. Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    I am completely gay, but I think I would rather be with Starbuck than Baltar. She’s more a man than he is anyway.

    7. What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    I have never understood what “Red Shirt” means.

    8. If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    I guess Doral could go.

  25. Pike says:

    R. Picon sez: “I have never understood what “Red Shirt” means.”

    Ah Padawan…

    In the original Star Trek, the security guys wore red uniform shirts. Invariably, you’d have Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and “Ensign Ricky” beam down to a planet. For dramatic purposes, one would not make it back. Guess which one.

    This is actually a common usage in dramas, where a minor character is killed to highlight the danger, but the major characters make it out OK, to highlight their skill. Star Trek just happened to give a visually distinctive look to the minor characters (their were major characters in red shirts, but they rarely took part in landing parties.) Thus the term was coined.

    1)If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    A Viper.

    2) If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    Colonial One. I could hang out with Roslin. And those seats look very comfortable.

    3) What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Viper pilot. Then I could be around Starbuck.

    4) Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    I’d be on the tyllium ship. Coughing.

    5) Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    Starbuck. But didn’t you guys get to pick 2? If I get a second I would like Racetrack–as noted above, she finds everything.

    6) Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Um, Starbuck, please?

    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Everyone after the main credits.

    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Baltar. Except then the show wouldn’t be as intersting. But he’s evil. But he’s a good character. But he’s evil. The press corps.

  27. Gray says:

    Oh wow. I always assumed “red shirt” was in someway related to the athletic red shirt. Like here’s that freshman red shirt from Houston coming in to play for Jones.

    This makes more sense.

  28. Yorick says:

    * If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    > Scar, ’cause Scar’s totally badass. I would only require a little tree air freshener to put on the rear view mirror for the smell

    * If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    > Not the Olympic Carrier for one. Probably Galactica or Colonial One

    * What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    > I’ll have to go with Viper pilot…

    * Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    > the closest one to my job would be working on the viper engines for Chief

    * Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    > well, Scar… duh

    * Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    > Can we say both at the same time? I’ll probably have some chance of escaping without them noticing when they start playing “Who’s the most unstable?”

    * What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    > Centurions. I can totally imagine Six telling a couple of them “OK you have to act as if you’re very bad at aiming until they shoot you” Centurions: “Oh Craaaap”

    * If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    > Fatpollo

  29. Number 13 says:

    Audra- Cavil’s no so much gross as he is the type of guy that looks like a possible pedophile*. Sorry Dean, you’re a great actor, but you’re rather creepy looking- especially in that coat and hat. But you are right on when you say he’s creepy.

    *I’m kidding, of course.

  30. The Alpaca Herder says:

    Number 13 — It almost seems like Dean Stockwell’s make-up is done specifically to make him look like an extremely creepy old man. When Mr. Stockwell guest starred on Enterprise he did not nearly look as bad as he does when set up as Cavil.

    Everybody — Is anybody thinking about running a quick stats analysis on these answers later this week? Unless I am mistaken it does look like there are some consistent answers and there are also some very creative answers.

  31. Jaelstruth says:

    I have a small question. What happens to all the old cylon bodies? Do they bury their dead? Do they decompose into goo? If they didn’t do something with them there’d be huge piles of at least a few of the models. Toss them into space maybe? I’d hate to run into the planet whose gravity collected too many of them in orbit.

  32. Dainin says:

    As to a job… well, as a lawyer perhaps with Romo Lampkin 🙂 The old story is… in a small town a lawyer practiced his trade and was going broke, until another lawyer moved in and they both got rich. So either with or as an adversary going up against Romo would be a gas. And we’d no doubt make a few cubits on the way.

  33. John P. says:

    Okay, the obvious BSG equivalent of the “red shirt” has to be — hands-down — Leoben.

    Eeevery time you see him, there is an inherently *massive* chance that he’s going to bite it in the near future. Besides, he almost qualifies as an über-redshirt because his throw-away deaths can happen multiple times in one episode!
    (btw, feel free to use that umlaut enhanced “u” for your future copy and paste needs, Chuck 😉 )

  34. Dawn in AZ says:

    1. I would have loved to man Pegasus. Everything was state-of-the-art compaired to all the off-network/hands on stuff on Galatica.

    2. Cloud Nine- all the way.

    3. I hope I’d have a job. What does most of the fleet do all day anyway? If I were a refugee, I doubt I’d have a job at all. To pick something, I’d teach or be a reporter.

    4. This is an interesting question with so many strong women to chose from, but to me Dee seems the most real and relatable. She is brave, loyal and slightly flawed.

    5. The easiest question to answer- Anders of course- the pyramid player in shiney armor. He’s cute and can put together homemade explosives.

    6. I think intimate time spent with either Starbuck or Baltar would be well spent, but for one night only!

    7. Seems like this is a Marine nickname, but I was going to say the nuggets.

    8. I’d like a shot at Ellen Tigh.

    Great idea Chuck!

  35. Radio Picon says:

    Pike, thanks for the redshirt explanation. Yes, I totally get that now…the extras they hired on Star Trek TOS for away missions always bit it in the end.

    I just listened to the podcast and now realize we could have included Cylon ships. I would have a Raider, I would totally live on a basestar…Colonial design is sort of like a Ford to the Cylons’ Mercedes.

  36. gafra says:

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    Raider. Reason: Raider=Ferrari, Heavy Cruiser=family van, Basestar=Winnebago.

    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Cloud 9! I’d plant a vineyard and go into competition with the Chief as a supplier of booze.

    What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Viper repair dude. No chance of unemployment there….

    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    Probably on Cloud 9 on holiday!

    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    Hmm. Cally. Practical AND cute.

    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    None of the above. I’m rather attached to my sanity.

    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Colonial Marines

    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Cavil!!! and Ellen.

  37. BoxytheBoxed says:

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    gafra, i am partial to winebagoes, but id take raider, so cylons didnt shoot me, yes im a wenii like that
    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Galactica, it has guns
    What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Starbucks kid friend
    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?Why Boxy of course duh
    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    Cally, would be willing to bite off ears, but sharons got supercylon strength…but so does tigh…ummmmm ill take Hotdog
    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    Everybody knows Boxy is the next starbuck
    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Boxy, 1st space station guy, centurions
    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    i like all the cylons, so Ellen

  38. Ty-The-Giant says:

    Dainin-

    Where do you practice? I graduated from law school last year.

    -T

  39. Gizzmogeek says:

    1) Which Ship do you want?
    The black stealth ship the Chief created that Starbuck flew. It kicked butt.

    2) Which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Galactica – It survives everything.

    3) What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Viper Tech

    4) Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show?
    One of Chief’s nameless techs.

    5) Who to be stuck on a planet with?
    Starbuck. She can keep you safe, resourseful as hell, and she’s a nut so she’s entertaining.

    6) “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    Starbuck. Definitely. Everyone on the show has a few screws loose but at least she’s darn entertaining.

    7) Who’s a “red shirt?”
    Any viper pilot in my book. Marines a close second.

    8) Who to “box”?
    Hands down, Tory. I can not STAND her character. Too bad Billy (the actor) didn’t want to stick around, as I presume he would have been the cylon instead of her. I’ve been presuming that was the goal all along, to have Billy be a cylon, which would have been awesome as he was there with Laura from the beginning. Since they had Tory step in, she has never really worked for me. I will say, Whiney-Lee is a close second for boxing.

    Oh, and I have to comment about Cavil. I totally agree with Audra and Number 13, the man gives me the creeps big time. Bleck.

  40. john b says:

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Seems to me that the ship that haseverything in th “Black Market” Ship, I cant rcall the name.

    What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    It would be cool to be a pilot, but maybe of a Raptor, rathor than a Viper.

    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    I would be one of the thousands of nameless Civilians who keep things going by doing the dirty little jobs that have to be done (just like here on Earth).

    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    One of the Hot Chicks (LOL).

    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    Can either of them really have a “Relationship” with anyone?

    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Nobody is safe on this show.

    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Doral the Cylon “Gophor”

  41. Luc says:

    Ship to have: Sean makes a good case for the heavy raider, I’d go for that. It’s not a very good looking ship, looks like a Cylon float for a bad parade, but good legs, plenty of space and weapons, intimidating.

    Ship to live on: Cloud Nine, I’d get real fed up with looking at the blackness of space ALL the time. Plus it has a bar.

    Job I would like: That dude in the little cubicle who gives the “thumbs up” to the fighters before they go all vroooommmm into space.

    Who I would probably be: The dude who scoops the craaappp of the giant mutant gerbil who spins the “Spinny circle wheel” of the “Spinny circle wheel ship” Shaymus22 mentioned.

    Character to be stuck on a planet with: Fat Lee, I could use him to forage from Truffles.

    Relationship with Starbuck or Baltar? Sure, neither is ever boring and I don’t get offended easily. I dont expect Baltar would ever help me move, but he would probably bring a good bottle to the housewarming.

    BSG equivalent of a red shirt? A red shirt with the corners cut off. All kidding aside, they thankfully are not as obvious as Star Trek about these things. In the original Star Trek series, was there EVER an unknown crew member on an away team who didn’t have some horrible horrible thing happen to him? Ever?

    Character to box? Doral, him and Simon are the least developed Cylon characters, but Doral wears those awful outfits who make my eyes hurt.
    I would not box Cavil. Yes he is very very creepy BUT a lot of fun. That wink at Tigh was soooooo bad… I hope to see much more of him in the final season. Tigh vs Cavil showdown, anyone?

  42. Raemani says:

    I decided not to read anyones response before I answered (well other then the GWC Crew, since I did listen the podcast. So if I duplicate an exact idea it was not intentional.

    # If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    My first thought on this was a raptor, and I will stick with it – you can carry people and have FTL, but Sean does make a convincing point with the Heavy Rader
    # If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Galactica – you know you will make it to earth and seems to have the most room, or at least it did until New Caprica. Granted you still don’t have much room. If it weren’t already blown up Cloud Nine seemed nice.
    # What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    I think I would want to be a Raptor Pilot
    # Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    I have two choices here – I have a BS of Science – so I would probably end up Baltar’s assistant. Or scheduling flights/pilots somewhere (I am work in Customer Service and scheduling our private fleet for a living)
    # Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    This is a tough one, but I think I am going with the Cheif – he can fix any vehicle we come across, keeps a pretty cool head, is nice to look at (not my favorite on the show, but still cute), and seems to be pretty level headed.
    # Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    Nope.
    # What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Any non speaking pilot
    # If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    I’m going with Leoben – he creeps me out more the Cavil – Cavil is still creepy, but he is tolerable.

  43. Timbuck says:

    How cool is this link? This is some of the best stuff on GWC. Thanks Chuck!

    Raemani–nice call on non-speaking pilots. They dont even live long enough to be cool. Someone above said “ready-room 3rd row pilots”. How true is that! Kudos. Those are the “Red” seats.

    I hope someone counts all these up. Its clear already about some of them.

    And oh yeah, The Spinny Thing Ship is the Audra Ship. She could make a fortune giving tours to us because everyone of us is thinking “What does that Spinny Thing do? I ‘d pay to see that!”. Homage to 2001. Maybe its the Space Gym w indoor rotating track?

  44. Luc says:

    I think the “Spinny Thing Ship” is the laundry ship. It’s usually followed by a flat ship and one shaped like an iron.

  45. Armando says:

    All right, I finally heard the podcast! Been a long week. So, here are my answers before I read everyone else’s comments and then get influenced:

    *If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    I’ve gotta go with Sean on this one. The heavy raider is pretty cool.

    *If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    Cloud 9. Sure, I’ll have to eventually be nuked, but at least I get to live with the semblance of a sky for a year.

    *What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Why president, of course.

    *Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    Being a musician, I’d probably end up being a lounge act on Cloud 9 or some sort of entertainer like that. Sure, it’s not the kind of music I actually do, but I’d learn fast before anyone realizes that I’m a hoity-toity artist and either sends me to the tillium ship or throws me out an airlock.

    *Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    I’d say Chief. He just has his act together. If not him, then season 1 or 2 Lee (no whining).

    *Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    Um, hell no.

    *What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Dana Delaney or any other character with an agenda that is short term.

    *If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    I’d go with Sean on this one too and say Baltar, for the sake of the fleet. If we go with someone I can’t stand, then I’d have to say pre-lawyer season 3 Lee.

  46. BoxytheBoxed says:

    So my last one was more to amuse my fellow GWCers

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    Stealth ship: FTL and stealth, plus a cool paintjob
    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Galactica, it has guns
    What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Id totaly be either Milo on the tilium ship like some kid impressed onto the service, or id be the drummer in the jazz band who evntually gets killed as a red-shirt
    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?Why Boxy of course duh
    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    easy Cheif, practical, smart, and badass
    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    can you?like is it even possible?
    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Not having a last name, being introduced in the beg. of an eppy where you see cylons
    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Baltar
    Audra that ship is called the space Park, its like Cloud 9 but not as nice
    the ship with the domes is the botinical cruiser, it has no FTL its like a flying garden. if i could have any ship ever seen in the show id take firefly
    iuts in the miniseries look at it right after/before laura is diagnosed with cancer look at the sky

  47. adoracion says:

    ship to have– the Blackbird, ‘cuz she’s so sexy and i’m a Goth at heart.

    ship to live–tough one. the Galactica is the Metropolis of the fleet, but then Cloud Nine has imitation sunlight which is crazy cool, BUT then the Astral Queen must be having all that hot prison sex…. (Oz in space!)

    job to have–viper pilot, of course! until i puke from motion sickness…. so maybe a Marine.

    who would i be– Kat. the only Latina badass like myself.

    character to be with if stuck on a planet– tough one. Chief for all the right reasons. Starbuck for all the wrong ones….

    relationship with starbuck or baltar– ugh. Starbuck, and then she’d crush me and i’d hop into a fat suit.

    BSG red shirt– easy. almost anyone who doesnt speak or turns their back while talking!

    characters to box– BOX in the Cylon sense of the word? Sharon. sorry. BOX in the human sense of the word? probly Dee (yes, this one’s for Billy….). although Doc Cottle would be my other pick, just for laughs….

  48. adoracion says:

    Alpaca Hearder–“Everybody — Is anybody thinking about running a quick stats analysis on these answers later this week? Unless I am mistaken it does look like there are some consistent answers and there are also some very creative answers.”

    –AGREED!!

    Yorick–your enttries are HILARIOUS!

    this was so much fun.

  49. dxf says:

    Random idea: How about a Frak Watch? Like, keeping track of how the word “frak” infliltrates other media?

  50. Number 13 says:

    Well, dxf, I know off the top of my head that it was used in “The Office”, “Veronica Mars”, and (maybe?) “Gilmore Girls”. I believe that Bruce Willis said it in the “Planet Terror” half of “Grindhouse”, but I’ll have to wait until it’s on DVD to be sure.

  51. BoxytheBoxed says:

    i heard it on MTV once
    and once in AMazing Race once
    i say it all the time

  52. Kappa says:

    If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?

    Raptor, because it seems like pretty much anybody can learn to fly one.

    If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?

    The Spinny Audra Ship, because since that one was one of the few that jumped away with Galactica and Pegasus when the Cylons showed up at the end of Season 2.5, there’s a chance that if I lived and worked there, I might not have had to go through the Cylon occupation on New Craaaprica.

    What job would you like to have in the fleet?

    Romo’s law partner, or a reporter.

    Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?

    The captain of the ship named *Enkidu,* because I’m one of the very few people who would think it was really awesome to own a ship named after a character from the ancient Sumerian *Epic of Gilgamesh*. 🙂

    Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?

    A sober Tigh. Considering how generally badass he is, and how he held together the resistance on New Caprica, I think that if I didn’t hand over strategic plans to the Cylons or volunteer to walk into a Cylon camp wearing a bomb, Tigh would get me home.

    Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?

    No thanks.

    What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”

    Marines.

    If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?

    Ooh, tough call… I’d say Cavil because, I agree, he is creepy, but as a viewer, he’s too interesting to get rid of. I think I’ll vote for Tory, because, as Adama says, “She’s no Billy.”

  53. The Alpaca Herder says:

    Kappa wrote: “Raptor, because it seems like pretty much anybody can learn to fly one.”

    So, are Raptors just “stick shift” and Vipers automatic transmission?

  54. Architect says:

    Ooo. Questions. Here’s my answers:

    1. I’d like a Raptor. A Viper is really cool but not for me – a bit too much flash. A Cylon Heavy Raider seems a little too big for me. Raptor, for FTL jumps; haul people / stuff around – kinda like a Toyota pick-up. 🙂

    2. The “Space Park” ship just cos it’s really intriguing looking. If the scienctific / military community is so enamored by it to convert it to their use – it’s good enough for me.

    3. Project manager for fleet wide facilities. Someone’s gotta figure out how to convert all those transitional spaces into long term living habitats. Coordinate resources and repairs, and the like.

    4. Probably one of Chief’s deck gang. Although, idealistically I’d like to as cool as Starbuck. She’s one of the cool kids. Ha, ha.

    5. Stuck on a planet huh? Well, that depends. If there were no chance for escape, someone like the Chief would be very helpful. If there was a slim chance for escape, I’d want someone like Starbuck. I think that she’s be able to MacGuyver us out of there. (well, maybe…)

    6. Romantically? Nope to both of them. Although I’d like to be friends with Starbuck, you know, pal around.

    7. I’s have to say – the marines. Which is too bad. I think that they could have created a long standing character to illustrate stories from their point of view. Maybe that would be too militaristic? I dont know. However, whenever I see a marine in any episode that is more than just an extra, something bad’s going to happen to some of them. That’s my def of Red Shirt.

    8. I’d box Cavil. He’s an awesome villian and that’s why I’d box him on the first opportunity. He’s dangerous, man.

    Ah. That was fun.

  55. Deckard says:

    1) Ship of your own
    I’m going with Sean’s Cylon heavy raider. It’s sleek but comfortable. But what do you feed it?

    2) Ship of residence
    One of those botanical ships. It may be an easy target, but the quality of life looks sweet! Also a big fan of Silent Running…now THERE were some cool, benevolent robots!

    The spinny-ship (shall we just christen it the “Audra”?) I will agree does possess a singular beauty in the fleet.

    3) Fleet fantasy job
    Gaeta’s job looks awesome. Get to hang out in the CIC, work the FTL and hang out with hot pilots.

    4) Fleet real job
    I’d be the one bringing Adama his coffee.

    5) Planet companion
    Starbuck. She’s got skills, particularly if it’s the Red Planet or Algae Planet. Though if it’s more of a leisure planet (ah, Kobol), I’d go with Racetrack.

    6) Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    If by that you mean a RELATIONSHIP, then I’d say yeah, with Starbuck. Cognizant of the potential ramifications (say, death in a Viper or a broken heart), it would take a few swigs of that Colonial beer (not champagne) to get over any apprehensions. Boy, I do sound shallow!

    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Not seeing the pattern. Seems pretty much an equal-opportunity demise.

    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Doral. Not sure how he’s working to advance “The Plan.” Now Simon, with his biological expertise, could play a much more significant role as we see the development of the Hylon(z). Oops, that’s a tangent. Yes, box Doral.

  56. Imperius leader says:

    * If you could have any ship in the fleet for your very own, which one would you choose?
    I would choose the “blackbird”
    * If you had a choice, which ship in the fleet would you live on?
    Gallactica
    * What job would you like to have in the fleet?
    Viper pilot
    * Who would you actually (honestly) be in the show — as opposed to who you’d like to be?
    Id most likely be on the tillium ship
    * Which character would you want with you if you were stuck on a planet?
    Athena for two reasons. 1:shes good in combat situations and 2: shes HOT!!
    * Would you have a “relationship” with Starbuck or Baltar?
    No question it would be Starbuck
    * What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    i don’t know how to answer that. and just to be clear its always the ensigns that die and not all of them are red shirts
    * If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    BROTHER CAVIL publicly!!

  57. Starbuccaneer says:

    First post! Been reading for a while, though, and always laugh inappropriately on the bus while listening to the podcast. This thread’s too good to pass up.

    1) Ship of my own:
    While the Heavy Raider is pretty much unbeatable, I would be perfectly happy with the Blackbird: mobility, speed, solitude, and lots of extremely cool toys.

    2) Ship where I’d live:
    Either Colonial One or a ship with sunlight and greenery. I’ve also always been partial to that ship made of the three flat discs.

    3) Fleet fantasy job:
    Colonial Wireless investigative journalist… like D’Anna-the-documentarian, but not (big E) Evil.

    4) Fleet real job:
    Chief of Staff/Special Assistant to the President. But like Billy, not like Tory. Because Billy Kikeiya is one of my favorite characters and Tory is both annoyingly conniving and a frakking cylon.

    5) Who I want with me on a planet:
    Starbuck- look what happened last time she got stranded on a planet: she ripped apart a mostly dead Raider, slapped her initials on it, and flew it home! Also, as was mentioned on a recent podcast, she’s rather a Jack of All Trades. Kara Thrace can do anything and look hot while she’s at it.

    6) Would you have a relationship with Starbuck or Baltar?
    For a *relationship* the answer is no; I’ve got my sights set on Racetrack. But if I could roll around the hangar deck, the pilots’ rec room, CIC, her bunk, Lee’s bunk, or pretty much anywhere with Starbuck, I’d be there already. Hells yes. Especially if she’s got her Season 1 haircut.

    I’ve always thought of Kara as an amazing feminist icon because she’s tough, tomboyish, sexy, successful, and also loves sleeping with lots of men (rather than the more 2-dimensional strong woman who is all those things but loves sleeping with lots of women)– but, since this is my Galactica fantasy, she’d go gay for me.

    7) What’s the BSG equivalent of a “red shirt?”
    Nameless Viper pilots. Saggitarons.

    8) If you had to “box” one of the characters, which would you choose?
    Dee She serves almost no purpose plot-wise. I’ve never forgiven Dee for breaking Billy’s heart and then hopping directly into bed with Lee. Cally’s also useless, but I suppose as the mother a hylon she might have some potential, and I should keep her around for Season 4.

    1.-Ship of my own-I like the ship from the miniseries with all the plants and everything, and yeah, it does get left behind because it doesn’t have a FTL drive but it was still cool
    2.-Job-I’d have Dee’s job, she gets to talk to everyone, but doesn’t have to do any of the actual fighting. I’m a talker not a fighter.
    3.-My actual job would be working on Galacticas child care center taking care of Hera and Nikki because that’s what i do, because as hard as I try to leave the child care profession, that’s all I can do.
    4.-I’d want Anders, why? Because he’s uh, smart? That’s right.
    5.- I would defiantly not have a relationship with Baltar (or Starbuck) but I would like to be Starbuck, she’s so cool.
    That’s all, I skipped some questions because I’m supposed to be writing a Psych essay right now.

    1) I really wouldn’t care so long as it wasn’t cloud 9

    2) see answer to question 1

    3) Presidency

    4) Gaius Baltar, not head Baltar

    5) Gaius Baltar, he can get out of any situation; D’Anna Bears if I were stuck forever

    6) Starbuck: no, unless by relation you mean lock her in a room until her hair reaches an acceptable length and ship you mean lock her in the room for an eon til she learns to keep her mouth shut. Baltar: I already masturbate, but I wouldn’t date myself I know what an a$$h01= I can be

    7) A nameless “skinjob”; they are alive but dont even get a name just like (god why do I know anything about the Lame Trek universe) the redshirts

    8) Laura Roslin; at least I’ll get my wish, eventually; the one fault of the show lies not with the writing but with the SciFinetexecs whom insist on portraying a character we so want to be more flawed as less flawed

    Long Live the One Whos Name May Not Be Spoken, May we achieve salvation through your knowledge, so we may have you answer our prayers

    Lon live the word of he known as GB, and the earthly vessel portraying your image JC

    1. Raptor–so much more useful and practical than Viper.

    2. As a civilian: Colonial One–you could probably at least count on regular meals full of algea goodness!

    3. Communications officer on CIC–you get to be in the know and have a slight bit of power without having to worry about things like “responsibilities” or “overwhelming duty to the human race”

    4. I’d probably be a sad little assistant to one of the priests. I’d probably be polishing the arrow of Apollo and dusting off the scrolls of Pithiai.

    5. Anders, seeing as he’s the only person to have real survival experience other than Starbuck, plus…cylon!

    6. Though I am a huge, huge fan of Baltar–not in a million years. He’s just a little…greasy… Between the two, I’d have to go for Starbuck, but (even if I swung that way) she’s just a little too intense for me.

    7. Any “guest star” role who doesn’t end up being a cylon in the end.

    8. Dee, ‘nough said.
