is a character driven drama, much more so than DS9, so I would think you'd like it.
I'm not too familiar with the new BSG series, but I know a little of it's space battles, and FF outerspace sequences, like it's battles, are close in style (in fact, you can see the FF ship briefly in one BSG episode!), and they follow the rule of no sound in space.
Start from the correct viewing order. It's only about 14 episodes, so jsut give the whole thing a chance.
