    Who was that guy that didn't like Starbuck? I can't see how he's not wrapped up in this in some way or another.

    You're right about some of those. The abuse, killing Zak and leaving Sam back on Caprica as big things to screw with her head and make her tragic but the rest tend to stem from these three key factors. She chooses to do some of these things to herself whereas Sharon's situation is unique and out of her control (mostly). I'm not trying to get you to not like Starbuck (1) because that would never happen (2) because I actually like her too and want to understand her as well.

    I just feel that Sharon's character is more interesting right now. But I can see her not being as interesting/tragic later after they explain and wrap things up while Starbuck can probably always have something intresting/tragic about her.

    P.S. The whole poll system is confusing me right now. Not just this poll but others seem to be messed up too. Like being able to vote multiple times. Anyone know why that is?

    Tragedy aside...ask yourselves, who would you most want to spend the day with?

    I'll never say Grace Park doesn't have talent...surely she has it in spades (after all BSG couldn't work with one weak link). However, there is a certain quality to Katee Sackhoff that just makes her captivating...like Jodie Foster and Maggie Gyllenhaal you probably wouldn't notice her on the street...but on screen there is a magic that happens. It's an innate sparkle...

    All these things just will entrench me firmly in the Katee/Kara corner...

    I guess some Saul supporters showed up since last I looked. It does suprise me that he and Starbuck are equal in the poll.

    Hey Saul isn't that bad. He isn't cut out for the top command, but he doesn't want that job. He's good at what he does and he makes the decisions that need to be made that no one else wants to make.

    Obviously this sorta thing is pretty subjective...But ask yourselves, who is the only human to have flown a Raider...and captured the Arrow of Apollo...won in hand to hand combat with a Cylon and managed to do all this without losing her sense of humour or losing her will to keep up the fight...I think we all know the answer!!

    Well when the shipt was on fire and they were going to lose the entire ship who was the only person willing to make the order to decompress part of the ship? I think we know the answer and without that order there would be no show because there would be no ship.

    But it had to be done and Adama said it was the right decision. Would you rather have a few people die or everyoen on the ship?

    How about Keikeya? That dude was important to keeping moral standards and innocence alive.
