Tahmoh Penikett: (About why the producers didn't kill off his character in the Battlestar Galactica Mini-Series) What do I think? I don't know. I've been told... that they liked my work in the Mini-Series. So I take that... as a beautiful compliment and I just hope that's the real reason. Obviously there was also an opportunity there with the storyline. It was a neat idea to take them out of the ship and I think that Ron, whether he jacked that from Star Wars, you know. Kind of like, you know Empire-Strikes-Back-type of thing where you cut it up between the planet and the ships... or not. But I think it's a brilliant idea and he went with it.
