gotta assume they gutted Pegasus right down to the superstructure before taking it into battle. Absolute minimum crew, no supplies, no vipers, only the raptors needed for evac. Why they trashed Pegasus but kept Galactica only makes sense in the context of the name of the show, bad military decision...
I'd wondered if anyone else had thought of that...once Cain was dead, Adama should have transferred his flag to Pegasus
and given Lee the Galactica
