BSG and Star Trek are science fiction shows that deal with issues that are still relevant to today's society. You can argue all you want that it isn't, but that is simply one person's opinion.

GodBen, I actually think BSG shows 4 characters learning what it means to be a Cylon and trying to hold onto their humanity afterwards since it doesn't really apply to them anymore. I think Tigh is a good example, from the moment he finds out he says "My name is Saul Tigh, whatever else that means, whatever else I am , that's the man I want to be and if I die today that's the man i'll be". Hating his own kind and keeping his friendship with Bill for him makes him feel more Human.
