      There were more than just 4 turrets. They just kept recycling the close up shots of those same ones.

      >no production facilities
      Galactica did have ammunition and food production facilities and was one of only a few ships in the fleet that could efficiently recycle water.

      Pegasus was the better battlestar but it had top be sacrificed because the show was called Battlestar Galactica, not Battlestar Pegasus.

      reading the plot summary because I haven't seen this shit in ages, it seems like the Pegasus was basically used as a diversion to allow the Galactica to rescue everyone from cylon gaza. That makes sense, as it would have been a much more appealing target for the Cylons to destroy.

            It's VERY worth watching anyway, what I told you is hardly a spoiler at all on its own. I didn't mention any actual characters. Some of them die, naturally, I won't say more than that.
            If you find your interest flagging, switch to watching the three movies. They cover 90% of the important points, skip filler, and improve the animation for the final battle which absolutely deserves it. I gave up on Gundam around the Ramba Ral arc about ten years ago, and only got around to watching the movies recently - the third is by far the best, Gundam ties up its plot and themes excellently.
            Also this is a 1978 anime. You might as well complain I spoiled you on the fricking Bible.

        The Trek franchise is worth billions, production budgets for the movies and the various series are astronomical compared to almost anything else. The Galactica reboot was falling apart from the beginning in production and budget. It almost got cancelled several times, barely survived, then hit a wall and they had to terminate it rapidly. One small anecdote from behind-the-scenes: watch all the paper in the series, be it books, documents, forms, whatever. The corners on a lot of it has been folded over or cut off ... an inside joke about how many corners were being cut on a daily basis to keep the series alive for a few more episodes. Galactica is famous for being one of the few shows that somehow managed to stay alive through a massive writer's strike during its production. It's an amazing tribute to how much love and energy went into keeping it alive as long as they did despite a dozen or more black cards turning up in its book of fate that should have killed it long before it concluded.

      I think it’s unfair to hang it all on him. The Cylons had achieved nearly complete penetration of colonial defenses via infiltration even without Baltar’s program. The only thing that saves them is some form of warning.

      Giving Gina a nuke was moronic tbh.

      Wasn’t the last 1.5 seasons during a writer strike or something?

      It’s crazy how fast the show’s plot fell apart after the first season. If I was running the show I’d have it be the first season over and over with slight variations. Cylon should have been aliens kill bots as they were from the original series but without the goofy camp elements and remaining mysterious space Terminators until the final episode. I would have leaned a lot more into capital ship battles with Pegasus throwing down with Baseships ever other episodes taking damage each time, showing the effects of accumulated damage, Cylons attempting to exploit weaknesses all the time, etc. Straight-up fights against the Cylons are basically impossible to win so the commanders have to do something unconventional, deploy new modifications, clever, etc, every single time to survive. I’d make it so that it would really seem like the Battlestar could be destroyed in any battle. As the show progressed Fleet leadership gets into fights over where when and how to commit the damaged Battlestars ie drama over Pegasus vs Galactica based on their different capabilities, damage level, fatigue of crews etc. Maybe the Pegasus absolutely refuses to cross-train with civilians, demands conscripts with full training etc and the benefits vs consequences play out over time.

      In short the show would have been amazing a military space war drama. The weird sexbot mystical human drama it turned into turned me off so hard. Oh well I guess after the 1st season all tv shows are just about the actors, easy work days and just doing whatever the frick.

      Because they wrote the show from season to season, there was no "plan" and it worked for several seasons until they wrote themself in a corner and had to pull a "lol, god did it" to make it work.

      The last season was a kinda a dumpsterfire but I still absolutely love the scene where Adama confronts Tigh after they find Cylon Earth a lifeless wasteland and how the crew is in the midst of suffering a total breakdown in discipline. Pilots fighting each other in the open, graffiti being tagged on the walls in full view of everyone, countless disheveled crewmen just crawled up in the fetal position in the hallways, a handful of officers still going about their duties as if operating on mental autopilot. The atmosphere of despair is very reminiscent of Downfall and I'm sure Roy Moore probably watched it a few times before writing that scene.

      An that's all BEFORE Adama himself is shown to have hit absolute rock bottom, trying to goad Tigh into shooting him.

    Because the show was called Battlestar Galactica, not Battlestar Pegasus. Also most likely they were trying to cut CGI and set costs, so getting rid of the Pegasus may have been a financial decision. In the world of BSG was it wrong to sacrifice the Pegasus? Yes. However you could argue the culture at the time was sceptical of new tech as new tech got crushed in the initial phases of the slaughter whilst the old and sturdy Galactica survived. You could say there was still some lingering mistrust of the newer ships, so keeping Galactica safe was the safest bet. When it comes down to it keeping both battlestars was the best option.

        They used up all of the set space making the Galactica sets, especially the CIC. Pegasus needed to be built in the spare spaces they had left over. The in-universe explanation was that it was a more advanced ship so everything was automated, hence less people and less space needed.

        One thing that really pickled my shit was Lee referencing the Olympic carrier during the Baltar trial. I get the point is he's saying that by the publics logic they should be treating him the same as Baltar and thus Baltar shouldn't be treated like a murderer but it's such a shit comparison. It was an action committed under military time of war on a target that is displaying a clear and massive threat towards the only form of defense the rest of humanity has. On top of that they never even knew for certain if the ship had innocents on it or if the Cylon's were fricking with them. Any person would recognize that destroying that ship is the right action to take even if it would result in the death of civilians. But he conveniently leaves out the fact that the ship was literally a nuclear bomb heading right for Galactica just to make Baltar look better.

            Yeah, the miniseries had a lot of kino moments. Lee was actually the one who made the decision to leave the ships behind, saving Roslin and thousands of civilians. He even made sure they didn't have the jump coordinates, so Cylons couldn't track them. Also

          that didn't bother me too much because the point of lawyers are to be gays and get guilty people off on technicalities.

          When that happened they were already trapped on that shitty planet for like a year or more, with cylons executing people and whatnot. Saul just wanted to remove toaster. I never really felt like there was anything political there

        The cylon fleet?
        The cylon fleet was never build to fight the colonies like they did in the previous war, they were always designed to wipe them all out in one go.

        The colonials would have won, they prioritized armor and overwhelming firepower. Cylons had to breach the colonial network and strike first, which still resulted in multiple ships evading capture.

    Since we're discussing BSG...

    Am I the only one who wonders why no one fricking thought of re-colonizing Kobol? My impression is that the planet was perfectly capable of supporting human life. It was definitely more hospitable than New Caprica where the only thing going for it was a breathable atmosphere (and no fricking plant life for photosynthesis).

      It was a cultural/religious taboo.

      Also, as long as the cylons were chasing them they couldn't stop anywhere, or the basestars would rock up and glass the planet. The only reason they tried to settle New Caprica was because it was in a nebula that hid them from outside scanning (until a nuke blew up in orbit)

    It’s crazy how fast the show’s plot fell apart after the first season. If I was running the show I’d have it be the first season over and over with slight variations. Cylon should have been aliens kill bots as they were from the original series but without the goofy camp elements and remaining mysterious space Terminators until the final episode. I would have leaned a lot more into capital ship battles with Pegasus throwing down with Baseships ever other episodes taking damage each time, showing the effects of accumulated damage, Cylons attempting to exploit weaknesses all the time, etc. Straight-up fights against the Cylons are basically impossible to win so the commanders have to do something unconventional, deploy new modifications, clever, etc, every single time to survive. I’d make it so that it would really seem like the Battlestar could be destroyed in any battle. As the show progressed Fleet leadership gets into fights over where when and how to commit the damaged Battlestars ie drama over Pegasus vs Galactica based on their different capabilities, damage level, fatigue of crews etc. Maybe the Pegasus absolutely refuses to cross-train with civilians, demands conscripts with full training etc and the benefits vs consequences play out over time.

    In short the show would have been amazing a military space war drama. The weird sexbot mystical human drama it turned into turned me off so hard. Oh well I guess after the 1st season all tv shows are just about the actors, easy work days and just doing whatever the frick.

        Whole show kinda felt like Lost. They gave an impression of having a coherent story to tell at the beginning but over time it becomes very evident that they just made things up as they went along.

          if i remember right, they planned to do a few more miniseries but Sci-Fi wanted a series and having to drag it out to 80

          still, it's moore's fault for not planning things out better

            They did have a prequel called Caprica which was pretty pointless, I only vaguely remember the plot being some crazy b***h getting her mind zapped into a centurion.

    I actually started rewatching it a couple weeks ago, it scratches an itch.
    Plus the CGI holds up surprisingly well for a TV show from 20 years ago
    Also it's based that the standard colonial sidearm is the five-seven

    Who used to be on the Space Battles forum? There was a huge and super-fun thread discussing a scenario in which the 12 Colonies invaded and occupied modern-day Earth. That was MUCH more entertaining than the show itself lol.

    I have weird mixed feelings about BSG. I could watch the miniseries over and over. I love the military space aesthetic of the battles and stuff that are like Sink the Bismarck in space but in the actual series all the other stuff and political stuff kills my interest. I try a rewatch every so often and each time I get further in but I've still not finished it all. Which is weird since I sailed through all 110 eps of LOGH without losing interest despite a lot of anons saying they find the first 20 eps boring

    Maybe BSG just needed a pair of curly haired admiral bros making a sacred inviolable pact to always act as one and to never rest until they achieve Total Cylon Death to avenge the impulsive one's sister getting nuked.

      BSG is very "2004 political commentary mixed with moronation and melodrama".

      LoGH is more like a timeless political documentary (And the episodes that are literal in-universe documentaries are kino).

      It also has way better characters.
