Re: oldBSG found Earth?

I tend to think that if TOS Galactica found Earth in modern day, it would likely have been in a scenario like G1980. They'd slowly infiltrate society bringing their technology, ideas, culture and religion with them, eventually creating a society similar to the one seen in nuBSG: modern humans, but ones that play pyramid and colonize other planets. To simply land and say," we are your brothers, have advanced galaxy hopping technology, are polytheists, and have been fighting evil robots in a genocidal war for a thousand years," would likely cause a culture shock so drastic it might start with mass suicides and end in nuclear war, likely against our "brothers of man" refugee space trash.
I like your view on this. Would have been interesting to see what would have happened...maybe some day HATCH can follow up his Galatica with something like that.
